Deborah is a Portuguese Language tutor and a Cross-cultural trainer. She has taught at Morley for several years.
Originally from Brazil, she was awarded a Bachelor and Licentiate in Language and Literature (Portuguese/Linguistics) by the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil.
She found the Bachelor course at the University of Sao Paulo was a truly inspiring and her combined degree in Portuguese & Linguistics helped Deborah to understand how we learn a language and how we should respect the variations in language. After her degree, Deborah worked for several years in the publishing industry, later moving to London.
After gaining her Certificate in Language Teaching from Goldsmith University, she worked as a Portuguese Language tutor at several colleges in London. Since then she has taught international students from across the world.
The opportunity to socialize with people from multi-ethnic and multilingual backgrounds inspired Deborah to study my MA in Intercultural Communication at Birkbeck College.
