My Story

     My first time in a classroom was in 2001, as a teacher assistant. The classroom was packed with about thirty energetic 6-year-old students... It was difficult and at the same time delightful. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. Ask my little brother whom I "forced" to play school with me, every single day! 

       From my graduation in 2002, I followed up with a post-grad degree in 2007 and an MD. in 2009.

When I moved to Canada, I restarted my career betting on my skills, my passion for this field, and the confidence that I would be able to teach using a second language. Since January 2014 I've worked passionately in my own tutoring business: MD Tutoring Services. Fast forwarding to 2018 when I happily attained another degree in British Columbia and here I am, doing what I love and loving what I do.

     During the 1st year of the pandemic, I offered free online lessons to keep people busy & entertained - including myself. It was a very difficult time. Later, I had to put all the lessons on hold and I had to re-evaluate and restart from scratch. 

     Today, I am working 100% remotely. I have students from Mexico, Colombia, U.S., Australia & Canada, and I am looking forward to showing the world how Brazilian Portuguese is a beautiful language. Meanwhile, I'd love to show how AMAZING Brazil is, including its people & culture!
