About meHello!!! I am Raíssa Costa, your new Portuguese teacher! I am 28 years old. I was born in Belo Horizonte, capital of the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil. At the age of 6 I moved to the United States of America and lived there to the age of 16. Even though I studied in an American school, my mother kept on teaching me how to speak and write correctly in my native language. As a college student, I went on to study how language is processed in the course of Speech Therapy. I also have a master´s in Neuroscience with a study on how language works in diferent parts of the brain. I have great teaching experiences. I have been teaching portuguese and english classes to friends and college students since the age of 18 as an extra curricular activity aside from my main job as a speech therapist. I have an up beat personality and believe that teaching can be fun! I give light and fun classes that I am sure you will enjoy.
