Hello, my name is Marina. I was born in Sao Vicente, Brazil and I am currently living in the USA. I want to teach you Portuguese or English as a Second Language, including 4 skills for Fluency: Listening Comprehension, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

I have over 10 years of teaching experience. I do my best to motivate my students, because, teaching is my passion.
I am a prepared teacher/ tutor. I love studying and updating my knowledge. For example, I passed the GACE ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANG...
I always really enjoy my lessons with Marina. Ela ? inteligente e hilarious (still learning some words). Our lessons always fly by and I feel like I'm learning very quickly, which means I have an exceptional tutor. :)

All of us have those jitters about not pronouncing the word correctly, however Marina set me at ease by telling me not to be shy. Extremely focused on you getting results and she is a joy to work with. She was extremely thorough and we are doing the alphabet and singular and plural statements presently. So if you are looking for a native Brazilian to learn from, she is the choice to make. Just don?t take up all her time slots, I?m still learning, hahah.
- Mark C. from Huntersville, NC
I specifically requested to focus on verbal communications to prepare for a vacation in Brazil. Marina listens well to what I'd like to accomplish and accommodates. She has a phenomenal memory (to bring up things I said in previous conversations) and is fun to work with. I highly recommend Marina!

Marina is super hands on! No minute of the session is wasted. Every second is valuable and she knows how to take advantage of it so you can learn at your own speed. Her charisma makes you feel at ease. Definitely a tutor who knows what is doing. My first 5 stars tutor!

It was just a good time. I love the conversational approach that she took and it helped me to pick up things much quicker than just learning vocabulary. Already have HW and I'm excited to do it.

She is very patient and I love the way she explains the reviews. We are going over the alphabet and she is not rushing me at all, taking her time and I?m learning how to say the letters in Portuguese.
- Jason F. from Hollywood, FL
Marina works very hard to teach her students and does so with a very positive energy. A good environment where the learner is not afraid to make mistakes is important and Marina does a great job encouraging her students.
- Andrew G. from Georgetown, TX
Marina is awesome!!! From day 1 it's been a very beautiful experience learning Portuguese with Marina. She is very warm and attentive. She is very fluent in Portuguese and she helped me a great deal with pronunciations and accents due to her strong, effective techniques used in understanding the language. Marina has a very engaging style of teaching Portuguese which makes you understand at a rapid pace. Marina makes learning fun and interesting. I am very proud to have her as my tutor and will definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Portuguese.
- Renee S. from Arlington, TX
Marina has all the qualities that I think a good teacher should have - knowledge, communication, confidence, she inspires and she is well prepared. A+!
- Daniel R. from Jacksonville Beach, FL
Marina is a great tutor. She is very knowledgeable and has very good teaching techniques. I take online classes with her and it is just as effective as being in a classroom. Definitely recommend as your next tutor!
- Katelyn C. from Hopewell Junction, NY
Marina was a great teacher. I had some technical issues and she was able to work around that. She helped me with learning how to pronounce words correctly. She introduced me to new words. She gave me a document in which I can review on my own. I would recommend her to anyone else trying to learn Portuguese.
