I have been working as a Portuguese teacher for 4 years since graduating from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro with degrees in both English and Portuguese. I love to work with people from different nationalities and cultures.  My best advice for those of you who are planning on trying to find opportunities in Brazil is to learn the language and meet local friends instead of only hanging out with expats.  Brazilians are very helpful and enjoy meeting new people.   In order to be a real Carioca you need to see the city…not just beaches and landmarks.  I would love to help you learn Brazilian Portuguese and to teach you about Rio!
