About Me

Olá!
Tudo bem?

Portuguese is an amazing language and I can definitely help you learn it!

I am a seasoned professional with more than ten years of experience in foreign language teaching and teacher training. I really like to meet new students and learn more about their goals. In doing so, I can provide them with fun, meaningful and memorable lessons regardless of their linguistic level.

My students often tell me I possess strong social, intercultural and communication skills. I also hold a BA in languages, internationally recognized teaching qualifications as well as the Certificate of Proficiency in English (C2 Proficiency/CPE).

If you are interested or have any doubts, don’t hesitate to contact me. It will be great to know more about your goals and provide you with the necessary support to achieve them.

Muito obrigado!
