I have 5 years of experience teaching Portuguese to corporate students as well as individual. Most of my students work with Brazilian companies, therefore I am very familiar and well attuned to their language needs. The classes are fun, with conversational exercises to give the students the practice they need to communicate in Portuguese with their clients. Besides Portuguese I also teach conversational Spanish and have students learning Spanish for different reasons.

I graduated in Veterinary School and have been working with languages for the past 5 years as a Portuguese Interpreter/Translator. Because cultural knowledge is important in the business world I include that in my lessons.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have lived in the USA for about 14 years. I worked as a translator and interpreter for the past seven years and as a Portuguese tutor for the past five. Most of my students and clients conduct business in English, there is no difficulty communicating. Also, when I tutor I have to go back an forth in both languages and/or bring up a meaning of expressions and words according to the students culture (language). Therefore I feel I am qualified to teach ESL.

Portuguese

I am Brazilian and therefore a native Portuguese speaker. The main focus of my classes is conversation. Why? Because that's how we learn any language! Talking. I also work with writing and reading according to my students needs. I have 6 years of experience teaching students with different reasons to learn a language. Some want to travel, some need Portuguese for work and some just enjoy languages. With the World Cup approaching don't you think it would be fun to learn about the country that will host the event as well as their language? So, let's get started with Portuguese!
