About Me

I am a 27-year-old TEFL Certified English teacher from the US. I started teaching English 7 years ago and it continues to be one of my greatest passions.

I have a penchant for languages and cultures and have lived for extended periods of time in Brazil, Spain, Guatemala, and the US.

I believe that language is based on human connection.

Therefore, I strive to make all of my classes interesting and engaging. I focus my classes primarily on pronunciation, conversational capacity, and the needs of the specific student. My classes are designed to have you speaking confidently from day one.

I have an undergraduate degree in International Relations and a Master's degree in International Business and Linguistics. I am confident that my strong educational background will provide you with an extra level of support throughout in language learning journey.

Feel free to sign up for a class. Qualquer dúvida é só falar. Obrigado! Gracias!
