Dear Parents and Students,

I am a father of 6. After living in southern Brazil for 2 years and continuing to study the language for more than 20 years, I read, write, and speak Portuguese fluently. I love the culture and the language and use my experience to bring an holistic approach to learning. My methods facilitate thinking in the language by using association. I encourage my students to speak freely and not worry about making mistakes. Making mistakes and learning from them will actually help the student learn the language faster. I seek to understand what the student's goals are with the language and then work with them to achieve them. Learning should be fun, and both of these languages are fun to learn and to speak.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have over 20 years experience teaching and tutoring language development. I specialize in English, Portuguese, and Spanish. I have traveled extensively around the world and understand various cultures and societies. Also, I understand the influence that culture has on perception and the challenges it can present in learning. Most of all, I seek to understand the student and what his/her goals are and then help them to achieve them.
