Oi! tudo bem? Meu Nome É
I love Brazilian Portuguese! I wish everyone knew how to speak it which motivates me to teach it. I teach conversational Portuguese to adult learners. I work with students who want to learn the language to enhance their spiritual practices, nurture relationships with Brazilians, and deepen their travel experiences to Brazil.
I lived in São Paulo for several years and learned Portuguese through full immersion. I’m a language instructor with over 10 years of experience and a Master’s degree in Portuguese language and literature. I’ve taught college courses but most recently launched my very own language program! I’m an artist at heart and Brazilian Portuguese is my muse. It inspires me to write poetry, teach, create community and so much more!
