O Soulphia surgiu para integrar cidadãos mundo afora, através do conhecimento e da inclusão social. Por isso, nossas professoras foram selecionadas em abrigos de NY. São mulheres que estavam desempregadas e que agora estão inseridas no mercado de trabalho: elas ajudam a melhorar o seu inglês enquanto você aprende mais sobre a cultura Nova Iorquina e começa a enxergar o mundo sob uma nova perspectiva. As nossas professoras passam por um rigoroso treinamento e estão plenamente habilitadas para oferecer aulas envolventes, motivadoras e de excelência, como boas nativas da língua inglesa.

Favorite quote:

The indifference, callousness and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering in animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of the human spirit.  - Albert Einstein


Crocheting, candle making, creating new recipes, and decorating cakes with flowers and designs.  I also enjoy writing and have always been very particular about good grammar. I am currently working on a blog about homelessness.  The writing I enjoy the most is humor.

Tell me more about you:

My true passion, however, is for dogs, especially hound dogs. I used to be known as "The lady with the hound dog on Osgood Ave."  If a dog would get loose in my neighborhood, people would bring him to me and if someone was looking for a lost dog people would tell them to go see me.  And I always got the dogs back home or found them a home in cases where they were abandoned.  I have a wonderful hound dog named Wishbone in Foster care and I can't wait to get a home so I can get him back in my life.  

It makes me so happy that many of my students have rescued many beautiful dogs from the streets. I have worked for many years to educate people about adoption, spaying and neutering right here in the US, but I now want to get involved with  rescue groups in Brazil. I hope to be instrumental in helping dogs to find homes and perhaps help an international group find them homes even in other countries.  There are many solutions to try.

  I am now pledging to donate $1 of every class I teach to a Brazilian dog rescue.  I am going to try to promote awareness of homeless dogs, as well as, recruit veterinarians and vet colleges to help with spaying, neutering and medical care. This will help them get started with a new life.
