Master in Education from Sao Paulo, more than 15 years teaching Portuguese for travel, business and children. Personalized lessons, based on your needs and proficiency with fast and efficient results.

Methodology

I use different techniques since as an Educator, I have studied a large array of teaching methodologies. However, I do believe in making my classes fun and interesting, so I incorporate music, songs, games, stories, videos, books, cartoons, etc.

Background

I moved to Brazil when I was 2 years old, grew up there and then immigrated to the U.S. in 2005. I have experienced the difficulties of learning a 2nd and 3rd language, from a student to an instructor perspective. In addition, I have a Masters degree from the School of Education at USP, the University of Sao Paulo, one of the top universities in Brazil. My experience teaching ranges from preschool, to travelers, to executives in small or large groups and one-to-one settings. I can customized learning materials according to your interests, your needs or your industry.

Simone was my language teacher. Without her hard work and dedication I would never have learned how to speak Brazilian Portuguese. In a month, I was conversational. She was patient and took the time to make sure I was learning the right way. I highly recommend her to anyone.
