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.
