I learned so much from Cynthia. Feel very lucky to have had her as a teacher and would recommend her to anyone. I signed up for 10 hours as a complete beginner and by the end she helped me speak in my desired Carioca accent. Class was fun and I have only positive things to say about the experience.

Another excellent lesson with Cynthia where we touched on the "conditional past imperfect" used-for-courtesy tense (Ï would/Would you..?") which is conjugated very different from Spanish. Yet, Cynthia was very patient and helpful, and next time we will practice more of this. A+++++

I teach for a living and have studied a fair number of languages in the classroom and can say from experience that Cynthia is a truly spectacular teacher. She's not just fun, encouraging, and creative; she has a physician-like ability to spot something that the student needs to work on and not only to write it down but to develop a "treatment plan" to address it. Learning with Cynthia extend beyond the hours of one-on-one tutoring, to materials she shares, podcasts she produces, a whatsapp group she runs for students. Both my partner and I take classe with her and couldn't be happier.

Cynthia was very friendly and helpful. She asked me what I would like to do and based the lesson on that. She directed me to other resources and asked me interesting questions.

Cynthia is an excellent teacher! She adapts the lessons to the way that I learn best. And she even finds ways to get me back in focus when I am tired and cannot find the words and grammatics by involving me in a conversation about a subject that I like to talk about. I totally recommend her!

I had a quick intro with Cynthia and she got right into evaluating my current level and gave recommendations and rapid feedback based on my needs. Her feedback and plan are structured but also have room for spontaneity. I'm looking forward to future sessions with her!
