About Nicole

My name is Nicole and I am a graduate of Portland State University. I received my B.A. in International Studies and Business.

MY PORTUGUESE LANGUAGE BACKGROUND:

I was an exchange student my Junior year of high school through the organization Rotary International. I lived in Brazil from 2006-2007, in the state of Minas Gerais, and have been back since to visit my friends and host family.I have also traveled to Portugal, where more "formal" European Portuguese is spoken.

I developed a deep passion for the Portuguese language and the country of Brazil because of my experience as an exchange student and now I recommend Brazil as a travel destination to anyone I meet! Brazil is a very large and diverse country and as a result the Portuguese dialect can vary from region to region. As your tutor I hope to teach basic spoken conversation skills as well as introduce the grammar and all the verb conjugations and more! My goal for my students is for them to feel comfortable, excited and ready to learn the beautiful Portuguese language and hopefully give them travel advice regarding the country.

I also have experience with ESL tutoring.

ABOUT THE PORTUGUESE LANGUAGE:
Portuguese is one of the major languages of the world. It is the 6th most spoken language worldwide, spoken by about 236 million people on four continents.It belongs to a group of languages called "Romance" or "Neo-Latin" that evolved from Latin, the language of Latium in Ancient Italy, or more specifically, the city of Rome. Therefore Portuguese is extremely easy to learn if you are already familiar with a "romance" or Latin-based language such as Spanish or Italian. However don't be discouraged if you aren't already familiar with a romance language or any language at all! Portuguese is not a hard language to learn and like any language it just requires lots of practice and study.

Approved subjects

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.

Social Studies is the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence. Understanding human relationships, history, etc., is essential to being a global citizen. As an undergraduate student focusing on international studies I have a very broad scope in terms of social studies subjects.
