Profile
Working as an English teacher for more than a decade and being a school manager for over two years has developed a varied number of key skills that led me to be willing to keep helping those who live in Brazil and have been striving to be fluent in the English language. That's why I've developed the @hand method so the students can, in a short term, achieve more effective results.

I am also a fiction and non-fiction writer. I've written some articles for magazines, blogs and newspapers, instruction handbooks, short stories and a novel. Some of this writing material can be found here.
