I have taken her Portuguese classes for a few months now and have just recently taken a cooking class from her. I have so much more confidence and understand so much of the language now! She works hard to tailor the classes to my learning style and they are the highlight of my week. Her heart is all in teaching Portuguese and it will really show in how much you learn! Try her cooking class too- she's a brilliant self-taught cook and I have some impressive Brazilian culinary skills now thanks to Deise!

Madame Monique is a wonderful tutor. Her knowledge of her native language is unquestionable. What makes Monique valuable as a tutor is her ability to work well with children (my daughter is 5 years old). She integrates all different methods of learning with her lessons, which include classic counting, writing and oral methods, but also cooking (galettes and croissants!) and arithmetic with special blocks (all in French). We feel very fortunate to have found Madame Monique!
Perhaps the best way to describe Matt's approach is this: rather than provide a list of ingredients and set of recipes to cook from, Matt helped me understand how the ingredients interact together, why the recipes work, and what my unique cooking strengths are. And this proved less complicated and time-consuming than one might think. I was surprised at how quickly he was able to help me begin to master the material using this approach.
