I teach Portuguese to beginners using videos, music, audio, and with the help of duolingo to enrich vocabulary. The classes are dynamic in order to bring the students to a level of  fluency and able to have conversations in a short time.

Hello, I am Maryelin Vargas, I am from Venezuela. I am an engineer and in addition to that I have been a Spanish teacher for 7 years. I have 7 years of proven experience teaching in different areas and subjects; I have taught from preschool to college. In my years of experience, what satisfies me the most is to see the evolution of the student up until they reach their final goal.
