Hello! I am glad you are interested in learning Portuguese. It will be one of the important languages to know as the Americas become more and more interdependent commercially and culturally.
I have spoken Portuguese all my life and lived twelve years of my childhood in Brazil.
Portuguese is a complex language, but with patience and a little time you will begin to enjoy its beautiful nuances. When working with a new student I like to start right away with a basic vocabulary and simple conversational exchanges. This way the student increases in confidence to engage in everyday dialog. As the student becomes more advanced I slowly develop the lesson content so it is eventually conducted completely in Portuguese.
I also enjoy very much teaching English as a second language. It is exciting to see my student feel more empowered as his or her English skills are honed through diligent practice.
I look forward to our first session!
