Overview

My name is Livia and I am a native Brazilian Portuguese teacher and translator. I have been teaching Portuguese and basic English for people of all ages and levels. My objective is to improve comprehension, conversation, pronunciation, reading, and writing skills. Lessons are customized based on what you'd like to improve.

I have a degree in Languages focused on Portuguese and English. I have been working as a teacher since 2011. I first came to United States, in 2013, to improve my English skills by studying and I have been living here since then. Currently, I am taking a Certification in Translation course, making Translation and Interpretation work and Teaching Portuguese and English.

Learning a new language and culture is very fun and you will love it! I am responsible, patient and kind.

I was a little late to start, but Lívia was ready to go and helped me to gain a better understanding of my knowledge in Portuguese language. I am very excited for our future lessons.

Livia had a lesson plan ready to go, and the lesson was very thought out. Couldn't have imagined learning more and as effectively as she had planned it! Amazing.

Livia and I have had a couple lessons together, and she is awesome! She is always on time for our lesson, and takes careful consideration of our time together. I love that she jumps right into our lessons and doesn't waste any time getting to work.

So far our lessons have been very well-structured. I have some minimal experience speaking Portuguese, so she has taken into consideration the things that I do know, and has done light refreshers for me based on that. We have gone over all the pertinent information to form a solid foundation in Portuguese, and she has a strong understanding of grammar rules and pronunciation.

She also gives me homework, which I like because it helps me to continue thinking about Portuguese even after the lessons are over. :) I highly recommend learning with her, she's friendly, knowledgeable, and organized!
