Hello! My name is Mikar Lopez. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL, but I am currently living in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. I have a Bachelors of Arts in English from Hope College. In addition to this, I also have a TEFL Certification from the International TEFL Academy in Chicago, Illinois. I feel that education is extremely important for the world we live in. Teaching languages can allow students to learn not only the language, but also the culture and ideologies that can be seen around the world. I am a fluent Spanish speaker, and I am currently learning Portuguese, so I know how difficult it can be to learn a language. I am here to guide you on the amazing and fulfilling journey that learning a language can be. As your teacher, I will help you with your pronunciation, conversation skills, reading, writing, listening, and grammar.
