City / Country of origin: Chicago, USA

Mother language: English

Spoken languages: English, Portuguese


I have left the terrible snow and business of Chicago to be back where I belong, in Rio de Janeiro. My first experience with the cidade maravilhosa was in 2012 when I was studying Brazilian culture and Portuguese. That was also my first time teaching English as a Second Language. Teaching English is such a dynamic experience. Learning all the nuances of the language and trying to pass these along across different cultures makes every class fresh and exciting. Of course, I have been blessed to have amazing students who have come from different backgrounds and with different motivations for studying English. When I am not teaching, I enjoy visting art museums, cooking, and walking around the city.
