My experience with tutoring Brazilian Portuguese is with French families relocating to Brazil, mainly from the pharmaceutical company called Rhone Poulenc, France (Rhodia of Brazil), when I was living in France and teaching conversation classes to English speaking lawyers, marketing and business people. The lessons were conducted in small groups or one-on-one and the results were outstanding. Some of my students were reading Brazilian newspapers, engaging in long conversation and understanding complex concepts in Portuguese in as little as six months. Although I graduated medical school in Brazil, I have always had a passion for languages. I am fluent in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English, speaking reading and writing in all four languages. The past 12+ years I have been working as a legal and medical interpreter with more than 12,0000 hours of interpretation in the medical field.
