Introduction: I have been an ESL and Portuguese teacher for more than 20 years. I am from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I have been living in the USA for more than 16 years. I've published two books on Amazon for foreigners who want to learn Brazilian Portuguese called "Tudo bem? Vamos aprender Português". The ability to make the student understand and speak a foreign language is the main focus when working as a language instructor. Conversation, grammar, reading and writing are part of a whole process to make a student feel confident and able to be fluent in a second language. Articles, videos and support material are some of the extra tools used in my class. It is great to see the students' development and how fast they can learn a foreign language when using a dynamic methodology. I have had several students of all ages, and what makes my profession so special is the ability to make them speak and write well. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you learn Brazilian Portuguese as a second language.

I’m Brazilian and we hired Natalia to teach Portuguese to my husband. He’s enjoying the classes and it’s impressive how he’s already speaking some after a few classes only. Highly recommend Natalia for anyone looking to take lessons.

Excellent professor, Muito legal! Halfway through lesson one I was already having a basic conversation in Portuguese! I’ve taken language classes in college, in foreign countries, in high school and self guided programs, and Ms Hickman is up there with the best of them. Obrigado, professora!
