Teaching and learning are my passions, and I love to share them with others, whether it is in Languages, Psychology or other Social Sciences.
I am Portuguese and have been living in the UK since 2010, working as a translator and a Languages and Education consultant, where I provide proofreading, editing, tutoring, among others.
My professional experience also includes sentiment analysis in Portuguese, both European and Brazilian and I also tutor Council Adult Learning courses in Portuguese and Social Sciences.
I have a degree in Clinical Psychology and a Master in Social and Organizational Psychology, training courses in areas
such as HR and Business, plus a course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (Level 5) having achieved a merit grade.
I believe learning is a continuous process and teaching is one of the ways through which I learn everyday, while helping others improve themselves and their lives.
I believe every student is different and therefore the approach should be bespoke, considering their personal skills, their needs, study skills and ambitions.

I am an Undergraduate in Portuguese so we had weekly lessons throughout my fourth year at University. Each lesson would be tailored to my needs. We would go over anything that I was struggling with, or anything that she noticed I could work on, which I thought was useful and something that is hard to find in a tutor I found. We practised every aspect of the language and she was always great at clearing up any questions. She helped me so much and was able to give me much more attention than my tutors at Uni. Couldn’t recommend her enough if you want to learn Portuguese!
Like I wrote in my email to you responding to your inability to take up the tutoring arrangement due to personal tragedy. I do commiserate with you and feel so sorry to hear this. Please accept my heartfelt concern.
I shall be making another request and hope I'll get someone else to do the teaching.
I rate her very highly based on her prompt responses while arrangement was on. It is unfortunate the unexpected happened.
Thank you Virginia!
