Hi, my name is Marina! I'm from Brazil, and currently, I live in south-east Asia. I love to travel and use different languages because it makes adapting to a new environment more manageable. Besides that, it broadens your view of the world and its people. I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, cycling, doing yoga, and going to the beach in my free time. I love nature, sports, culture, people and animals.
Olá, meu nome é Marina! Sou do Brasil e atualmente moro no sudeste da Ásia. Amo viajar e usar outros idiomas, porque facilita a adaptação em um novo lugar e amplia sua visão do mundo e das pessoas. Eu amo estar ao ar livre, natureza, esportes, praia e animais (tenho 1 cachorro- Kaya).
Me as a Teacher
I have experience planning classes for all age groups and levels. I like to keep a fun way of learning and practising a language by preparing lessons that include exciting topics of conversations, using documents, pictures and videos. In that way, you'll see you already know more than you probably first expected!

Assim, você verá que já sabe mais do que você imagina!

An incredible first lesson. Marina is easy to talk to and extremely helpful with any problems. Eu gostei muito de conversar com a Marina. Fui uma aula incrível conversar juntas. Até a próxima!

This is the best Portuguese teacher so far in my endeavors to perfect my grammar using my poetry as a guide. She is so inspirational that having a one hour session with her drives me to write more poetry. She is a muse for my art.

Marina is amazing. She is patient and friendly. The class is fantastic and she helps me with my pronunciation and makes me feel confident. The lessons are always different and she adapts it in order of what we need.

Due to my job, I have to select teachers who are up during my learning (free time); and I found Marina to fit a time zone that can work for me. Her English is very fluent and her pronunciation is great in order to explain grammatical or errors in my pronunciation. She is very patient and will roll with whatever conversational style you can adapt to.

Marina is one of the best teachers I've found on iTalki, I'm almost hesitant to leave such a good review for fear of having to share her time with other students :)
Thank you for the great lessons!
