I spent most of my childhood and teenage years in Brazil and am fluent in Portuguese. My first reading language was Portuguese, and I learned grammar in Brazilian schools. I can help you master spoken and written Portuguese and give you the tools to use it in any context.
In college I studied French and became fluent in Spanish, and I've been able to gain valuable perspectives from the teaching methods of my professors. I've taught Portuguese to a variety of students, from professionals planning to relocate to Brazil, to those studying the language just for pleasure. For the past 2 years, I've also taught group courses of all levels at a school called Brazil in Chicago.

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.
