Learning can come easy for some or be a struggle, and it helps to know how someone else has dealt with the situation to see yourself get through it. That's what made me want to be an English teacher; my best teachers have always been those who know their stuff well, and who pulled me through the struggle to see the benefit for myself. Over the years, I've helped different folks work on their English conversation, their art skills, acting, and all kinds of reading and writing. What I want most is to see you grow and succeed!

I am a licensed high school English teacher with BPS, and I have also studied art and graphic design. I have taught in schools and smaller settings to students from 12-79, and from various language backgrounds. I speak English and Portuguese fluently and have strong Spanish, as well.
While I am currently teaching only high school English, here are some other areas I have taught: acting (performing arts), set design (performing arts), graphic design (yearbook design), speech, AP English Literature (college level reading and writing), ESL (all ages), writing tutor and ghost writing.
