Hi, there! My name is Rita S., I am a native speaker of Portuguese originally from Brazil. I have more than 15 years of experience teaching Portuguese language and culture to professional adults on some of the leading international institutions in the D.C. area, from beginner through advanced proficiency levels.

I am happy to tailor my lessons to meet my students' needs and style. I have a lot of experience as online instructor, using Skype, Webex, and FaceTime to deliver lessons to remote students who are unable to attend classes in person.

I am a great advocate of good pronunciation, no matter what is your native language. And if you are a Spanish speaker, I can help you to overcome the specific challenges that Spanish speakers face when learning Portuguese.

Culture provides the environment in which languages develop, so culture is an essential part of my lessons, including Brazilian music and history.

Let’s talk and see how I can help you to learn Portuguese in a fun, ...

Due to my enthusiasm for Foreign languages, I am fluent in French and can read Russian, German, and Spanish. French was my minor and chemistry was my major. I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society based on my achievements in the fields of chemistry and French. I have also enhanced my fluency in French by traveling abroad, including residing in France at the University of Poitiers as well as traveling abroad to Paris, Brussels, and Calais. I look forward to spreading my enthusiasm for foreign languages to others.

I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy

I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 20 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spa

I need some patience for sure because I'm SO self critical I can block my own progress. Christy is great, patient and so far, is bringing my conversational spanish out of its shell.

I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

I have extensive experience working with all types of students, from children to adults to business professionals. I have taught students of all levels. I taught group classes as well as one-on-one classes. I tend to tailor each class to the needs of my students. With kids, I make sure that the classes are interactive, energetic, and fun. I also tend to use a lot of TPR in order to clearly demonstrate what I want the students to learn. I also prepared students for important exams such as FIRST, PET, and IELTS. With business professionals, I tend to focus on their goals. For this reason, I make sure to incorporate a lot of business vocabulary, idioms, and presentation skills. I also speak three languages, including Russian and Spanish.

I have two decades of experience teaching English literature, writing, creative writing, and test prep to 9-12 grade students. I strive to build a rapport with each student and do my best to understand them as a person. This helps me to be able to reach each student at their own unique level of learning and instruct them in a unique way. I am FAR from a boring teacher. While our focus will always be on the lesson, we will have fun and laugh along the way. I try to make my lessons presented through technology as often as possible, but nothing beats good old fashioned pen to paper when it comes to essay writing. I look forward to having the opportunity to give you the skills necessary to become an independent learner who will only need my services for a limited amount of time.
