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 Academia. 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!

I'm very excited to be working with Rita! I was incredibly nervous about learning a new language (not my strongest skill) and Rita was very encouraging. She asked questions to really zero in on exactly how I will be learn and immediately tailored her instruction in a manner that matched my learning style. Highly recommend to anyone.Show More
Great Instructor who works with what you are after.
Responsive to my needs. Meets me where I am in terms of my language needs including pronunciation practice, vocabulary, etc.
Rita was very patient, personable, and funny for my first lesson! I can't wait to continue learning Portuguese with her!
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!
Rita is an amazing teacher, very patient, smiling and with amazing coaching skills.
She is very passionate and into training people to make them improve and succeed.
I definitely recommend her!
Very instructive teacher!
