Portuguese and English
Hello everyone! Oi gente!
I never though one day I would be here, writing my bio and inviting you to this incredible journey of learning a second language (in some cases, the third or the fourth). I was born in Brazil and as most of kids from my generation, my dream was to be a soccer player. Well, it did not happen. Teaching English as a second language (and Portuguese to foreigners) came into my life a bit later than to most of language teachers I’ve met. It was back in 1997, at the age of 25, when I was looking for a day time job, after spending several years bartending all over the world. I was physically tired and seeking a healthier life style when I saw this ad for English Teachers from a
Language school in São Paulo. Born and raised in a family of teachers, what outcome would you expect? I got the job and I absolutely fell in love with it. It’s been an incredible journey, teaching all sorts of students, from high executives from multinationals, to ambitious teenagers looking for better career opportunities, from retired ladies who have decided to travel the world, to actors willing to improve their Brazilian- Portuguese accent. Literally, I had the chance to meet thousands of students and it has always amazed me how much we can grow and learn together while teaching and sharing experiences.
It will be a pleasure to be part of your journey!
