Introduction: I have been an ESL and Portuguese teacher for more than 20 years. I am from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but I currently live in the USA. I've recently published a book 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 an ESL/Portuguese teacher. 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 development of the students 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 English or Brazilian Portuguese as a second language.

Portuguese Lessons

Only one class so far. She picked up on my abilities and weakness' quickly. Made me feel comfortable. She spoke clearly, had a written lesson to go by.

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.

Natalia is an amazing tutor! She's always positive and energetic. I really appreciate her professionalism and her patience. Learning Portuguese isn't easy but Natalia's lessons are fun and easy to follow. She's definitely someone who I would highly recommend. 10 out of 10!

i've been traveling to Brazil once or twice a year since 2009. I tried Rosetta, Duolingo, Babbel and more but made very little progress. My Brazilian friends kept teasing me saying when are you going to learn the language? The teasing has turned into praise now that I'm working with Natalia -- my friends can't believe who much I've learned so fast. Natalia literally wrote the book on learning Portuguese. She is such a considerate and patient teacher that she puts me at ease so that I can learn the language, even mastering the accents that I always had trouble with in the past.
