My name is Carolina, I’m 30 years old and I’m from Brazil; therefore, my native language is Portuguese. I have an undergraduate degree in Engineering, and I worked in a multinational company for 6 years, where I had to communicate in English every day. During my university years, I lived in Canada for a year and a half. Learning and teaching languages have turned into a passion of mine, so much so that I’ve decided to dedicate myself 100% to teaching English and Portuguese. I love traveling and getting to know different cultures and people. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, watching series and movies. Hopefully, I’ll be able to help you learn a new language and achieve your goals!
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching English on and off for about 2 years, and this is my first time teaching Portuguese. I want to help students learn a new language and feel confident communicating with everyone. I like to encourage students to speak, regardless of their language level. I love meeting new people, learning from them and helping them achieve their goals.
My lessons & teaching style
You can expect a friendly environment to learn and practice your new language! We can have both formal and informal classes; it is totally up to you! I have formal course materials for both English and Portuguese. I believe that in order to master a new language, it is important to learn all skills (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking) in parallel. However, we can adapt the lessons to your specific needs, for example, focusing only on pronunciation/conversation skills. I also like to use other materials (such as music, series and movies) during the classes, according to the student interests.

I have taken many classes with Carolina and my Portuguese has improved immensely! She is patient, professional, and a pleasure to talk with. She has based our classes on my needs and we have had many in-depth discussions on various topics. She has become indispensable in my Portuguese learning and I have continued to learn so much with her help. She is one of the best instructors I have had! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a smart, kind, and dedicated instructor with whom they can comfortably improve their Portuguese or English!

I was very nervous about finding a teacher who would be able to work out a customized approach for me. Carolina has been awesome, I am sure she will work with you to create a plan that works for you. She is extremely friendly, easy-going, knowledgable, and most important for me - patient! An hour lesson with seems to breeze by because she is so easy to work with. Highly recommend and I will be coming back for more lessons.
