During my class I try to learn as much as possible about my student and I try to incorporate what he/she already knows into the class. No two classes are alike. My students needs come first. I engage students by keeping them involved in the lesson as much as possible.
I am an ESL instructor, but I am passionate about my native language, Portuguese. Being an ESL instructor helps me prepare classes that are more attractive to Americans who wish to travel to Brazil or to read poetry by Fernando Pessoa. :)

Lilia is a wonderful teacher and the kindest lady. She puts fun into her work and makes learning enjoyable. She is a hard worker and cares for her students who she invests time and energy into. I had her for Portuguese classes at Wright State University. I have very fond memories of her class.
Lilia taught me Academic Success during the ESL program at Wright State University in 2015. I have never seen such a dedicated teacher who loves her job. Lilya always makes sure that her students understand the material. She uses her time in teaching very effectively. I still use these strategies she taught me in this class.
Lilia was my teacher at the University of Dayton’s intensive English program in 2008. I don’t usually remember my teachers but Lilia was definitely special.
Her teaching style and methods no doubt have significantly contributed to My success at college and at work in an English-speaking environment.
Lilia has always looked after her students. When we were faced with homesickness in the US as international students, she was there to help us and motivate us to move forward and excel our learning in and out of class. Throughout my learning journey from grade one to college, I went to different international English schools in different countries. Lilia definitely makes it to the top of the best teachers I ever had!

Lilia is one of my favorite teachers. She taught me writing at WSU. She is friendly and caring towards her students. She has good strategies to support students and help them learn. Her class and subject have become my favorite because she is funny and provides challenges at the same time. Fatimah Alfaraj
She is a great teacher, not only for teaching in a dynamic and pleasant way that makes her classes incredible to watch, but also because she's an awesome person, kind, extremely professional and knows how to create connections with her students through the process of learning.
I have known Lilia for at least a decade and worked with her for a few years. Lilia is a very experienced teacher. She's organized, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable. Plus, Lilia is fun and a great person.
