Hello. This is my story.

Originally from Lisbon, Portugal, I hold a BA in International Relations, a MA in History, and an Associate Degree in Economics and Accounting. I have twenty one years of experience teaching Economics, European History, World History, and U.S. History. I have published two books in European History as well as several articles involving politics and government. I also served as the Secretary General of The Portuguese Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry,reporting directly to the Japanese Ambassador in Portugal.

I believe that effective teaching is rooted in the relationship one develops with students and my approach
to teaching reflects that. As an accomplished teacher, I offer a broad multicultural background of solid performance, dedication, and commitment to the education of my students. My goal is keeping my students motivated, making them engaged with the material at hand, enhancing self-awareness and understanding of the world around them, and ensuring that they leave each class with concrete understanding of the material.
