I love traveling. When visiting a new country I always learn more about its culture, but also about my own culture. It's inevitable not to compare them. Whenever I can, I try to visit a different city or country. I have already been to 21 different countries and and at least 50 different cities .
I am an instructor of Portuguese at the University of York, I obtained my BA in English and Portuguese language teaching and linguistics from PUC-SP in 2008.
In 2010 I obtained an MSc in Developmental Linguistics at the University of Edinburgh. The same year I also obtained the CELTA certificate.
I have been teaching languages for 10 years. I have taught English in Brazil. I have also taught Portuguese in Italy. Since 2014 I have been teaching Portuguese in many levels in a variety of languages schools in England. I am specialized in preparing students to seat for proficiency exams, in the last two years I have worked as oral GCSE examiner.
In January 2018, I have started to teach Italian, and in the same year I finished my PhD in Linguistics at the University of Sheffield. I have been teaching online and taking courses about it since 2016.
