Hello, my name is Rita and I am a native Portuguese born and raised in the beautiful city of Lisbon, Portugal, where I graduated with a PharmD. In 2010, I moved to the US to work for a biotechnology company and for an University. Other than science, I am passionate about teaching Portuguese to people with multiple education backgrounds and fulfill their career goals. With a solid experience in teaching, including my role as a Language Instructor for years, I am well positioned to help you achieve your language learning milestones, and to immerse you in this interesting and unique culture!

There are many reasons to learn Portuguese! It makes you more marketable and employable, and it promotes amazing cultural discoveries and business.

What are you waiting for? Let’s start your enjoyable learning journey!

Best instructor ever! She's fun and has a lot of suggestions. I'm 60 and haven't ever been able to learn languages so we have our work cut out for us. But Rita is intelligent, patient, helpful and kind. I know we can make this happen!
