Hi! My name is Rita and I'm from Rio de Janeiro. I'm a full time teacher who has been teaching Portuguese for over 11 years. I have a degree in Portuguese and English Languages from a Brazilian University and also a New School University Teaching degree.

"I've been studying Portuguese in NY for about 4 years. In that time, I have worked with 4 different teachers. Simply said, Rita Queiroz-Young is simply the best. Rather than impose a pre-set program, she evaluated what I knew,but more importantly, how I wanted to use my Portuguese. She then created an individual program of lessons, conversation and even videos that helped me achieve great progress. She is always prepared with new lessons and she's always on time for my class. Finally, I must add that Rita is passionate about language and has a terrific sense of humor that makes learning lots of fun. As I said before, Rita is the best!"

" I began studying Portuguese with Rita 11 months ago, and have learned an amazing amount since then. She conducts her classes with the utmost professionalism. She's well prepared, tailors the lessons to each individual student and encourages feedback. True to her nature, she's also an incredibly encouraging and supportive teacher. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning in a fun, focused environment."
