I like understanding what is the best way my student can learn - it can vary from person to person, so then we can plan the classes in a creative and fun way, but vey professional. Because of that, I base my approaches on a mixture of methods so I can meet different levels and needs.
I teach casually since my high school, helping people understanding any type of subject better, for example: portuguese, math, accounting, etc. My colleagues/students have always giving me good feedback and they have achieved good grands and have expanded their comprehension. Since I moved to the US (in 2017), I have taught Portuguese for three people: a 4 year old boy and two ladies on their 20’s. I have enjoyed it very much and have had great feedbacks. Currently I’m still teaching one of the ladies and I’ve seen so much improvement in her skills!

I found Melva on this website in 2017 while looking for a Brazilian Portuguese tutor for my son. Teaching a second language to young children can be very challenging. We had experience with other tutors before but Melva was the first one that was able to quickly bond and connect with my child. His vocabulary improved significantly within just a few lessons. She always had a lesson plan that accommodated his needs.
Melva is very professional, kind, punctual and dependable. I would hire her again and again if I could but unfortunately we do not live in the same state anymore.
I have learned so much from Melva! She is able to explain things in a way that I can understand them, and challenges me to go further than I thought possible. The fact that she is a native Portuguese speaker gives me a lot of confidence, because I am not just learning textbook Portuguese, I'm learning to speak the way Brazilians really speak.
Melva is such a natural language professor. She was able to quickly gauge my level of understanding and my learning style. Then, she adjusted each of our lessons to enhance my ability to pick up the language. Melva is Brazilian, so Brazilian Portuguese is her first language. However, she has studied and spoken English for over ten years. Her mastery of both languages allows her to help students from beginner to advanced levels learn Portuguese.
