As a native Portuguese speaker, I am confident I can assist you in learning the language whether it is primarily for basic understanding and communication or for mastering the language.

Portuguese

Portuguese is my first language and I am confident of my knowledge in the language. I can speak and write fluently and most importantly, I understand the intricate Portuguese grammar. I studied Portuguese throughout my life in high school and college in Brazil and often had to prove my knowledge in the language through written and spoken assignments. Depending on the student's learning expectations, I will design lessons that fit and satisfy their needs.

I fully understand the challenges of learning a foreign language. It requires time, constancy and a good tutor!
