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 nurture relationships with Brazilians, deepen their travel experiences to Brazil, and most importantly have fun learning a language. 

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 dual Master’s degree in Portuguese and TESOL. I’m an artist at heart and Brazilian Portuguese is my muse. It inspires me to write poetry, teach, cultivate a language-learning community and so much more!
