About Me

I’m Carolyn Quintella. I received an M.A. in linguistics from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, UFRJ. Here in the US I’ve been a certified California Superior Court interpreter of Portuguese for ten years. I work in state courts and at depositions in Northern and Southern California and have also interpreted in US immigration and federal courts and in other states.

Before becoming an interpreter I was a Romance language instructor at several colleges, including five years teaching Portuguese at UCSD Extension. I’ve also taught all levels of English as a Second Language (ESL), including giving classes in the specialized areas of accent reduction, phonology and intonation.
