Universidade do Oeste Paulista (Portuguese)
Learn at your pace and concentrate on the areas and methods that you would like. Whether it be starting with the basics, concentration on verbs and conjugations, translation of current events, reading Brazilian newspapers, etc., we will customize a plan for you and modify it as we go.
While learning a language may have its challenges, the rewards are priceless. Imagine traveling to Brazil and asking directions, ordering from a restaurant and speaking with a Brazilian. Or, video conferencing with a company in Brazil to negotiate a contract. Knowing how to speak, understand, read and write another language will expand your comfort level and confidence to levels you've never experienced before.
I was born and raised in Brazil and have a bachelor's degree and teaching certificate (equivalent) in Portuguese. I taught Portuguese for 18 years while living in Brazil. Allow my experience to help you.
While I typically teach private lessons, I will consider teaching groups for an adjusted rate. I teach at a local, quiet, business establishment that's open to the public. I'm available to travel a reasonable distance for an extra fee. While I try to be flexible with my scheduling, I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Thank you -

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I love teaching. It is my passion. I was born and raised in Brazil, so Portuguese is my native language. In addition, I have a bachelor's degree in Portuguese and was a Portuguese teacher for 18 years in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I emigrated to the United States several years ago and am now a US citizen. I would enjoy teaching you the beauty of the Portuguese language.
