I am thrilled when I see others succeed in worthwhile endeavors, and I believe knowledge and understanding is worth the effort it takes to obtain it.  However, since the road to knowledge and understanding can be treacherous and difficult, I hope my teaching can make the road a little easier for those coming down a path I’ve been before, and in this case, learning Portuguese! It is a pleasure to be a facilitator of this learning process that connects people to each other – and it also motivates me to keep improving!  I speak and teach Brazilian Portuguese.
