I'm Brazilian Portuguese and culture enthusiast and also a certified professional teacher with over 6 years of experience, proud to have guided many students to proficiency! I teach adults (+12) of any level, tailoring the lessons to the student's interests.

Hi! My name is Lygia and I'm a language and culture enthusiastic! I was born and raised in Brazil yet left the country some years ago to study my bachelor's in Mexico. I've been a professional language teacher and translator since 2014, I'm certified to teach online and happy to have guided many students to proficiency. I tailor my methods to each student but with most of them, I dedicate a great part of the lesson to his/her output. I like to learn about my students' interests and connect my lessons to them, helping students use the vocabulary and grammar they learned the way they will use it in real life! Hope to meet you soon!

Rachel Tobin
An incredible teacher! She totally tailors lessons to the needs of the student and is great at explaining new words and concepts. Lygia is such an intelligent and interesting person that speaking lessons with her feel more like natural, interesting conversations than classes. Would highly recommend to anyone!
