I am an experienced bilingual professional teacher and communicator. I am a native of Brazil with a wide breadth of experience and passion for the Brazilian and American cultures and their languages (Portuguese-English).
The experience of living in other countries has given me great cultural flexibility and has made me a more open-minded person.
My work consists of teaching, guiding and coaching students from around the globe with Brazilian Portuguese. I help them in all aspects of breaking the language barriers. I work with all language skills and methods, yet my main specialty is making students speak and communicate well in Portuguese. I work directly on their speech and its construction through the Communicative Approach along with modern technologies. I customize my students experience according to their main goals and I have many success cases. I love what I do :)
As always an amazing lesson. I really appreciate how the homework and lessons are tailored to both my personal interests as well as my Portuguese goals, and I can tell I am improving rapidly under her mentorship. Thank you!
Our lessons have become one of the things I look forward to every week. Carmen is amazing and if you want to learn Portuguese you won't find anyone better!
One of the amazing things about Professora Carmen is that during our lessons I will often times ask a question about something I am stuck on or curious about, and she will flawlessly use my question as a teaching moment. As an example, I mentioned how in a song I heard a phrase that didn't make sense to me. 15 minutes later we had use that phrase to help me learn more about Brazilian culture, grammar, and different meanings to similar words. Honestly one of the best teachers I have ever had in my 16+ years of schooling!Show More
Working with Professora Carmen has been amazing. Over our couple months working together she has helped me grow and learn a ton, and it is clear through our interactions that she genuinely cares about her students and their progress. I can't express how grateful I am for all of her help and assistance!Show More
Every week she continues to exceed my expectations. Very generous with her time and praise, yet also pushes me to improve and has high expectations for me as well. Couldn't ask for a better tutor!
I was struggling a bit with today's lesson but Carmen was very patient and helpful throughout. She spent a lot of time between last lesson and this lesson helping me access online resources, and was always ready to answer my questions outside of our class time. It is clear that she cares about helping her students, I am very thankful for how hard she works. Obrigado Professora Carmen!Show More
Just finished our third lesson. I had been studying on my own for a couple of months and made some progress, but after just three lessons with Professora Carmen I have improved a lot! Each lesson I notice the progress I have made, and the only thing I have changed are my lessons with Carmen. Hands down worth the investment!Show More
Amazing! Great conversation! Patient, clear and helpful, and goes above and beyond!
Great first lesson, I felt like a learned more in this hour than I have the last few weeks studying on my own!
