As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor of American English and Brazilian Portuguese, I serve as a mentor who guides children and adults through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring "classroom" assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Andressa delivers an exceptional lesson experience. I've had her teaching me for almost 6 months and I can't even describe how much my English has improved since then.
Andy is a great teacher. After a couple of months taking classes with her, I was able to have conversations in Portuguese and even do business in Brazil. I highly recommend her as a teacher, she's simply the best!
Muito obrigado, Andy.
Andy is an excellent and friendly English teacher. It was a pleasant experience learning from her!
