Great Teacher, very engaging

Lesson four with Maria. I was have trouble differentiating between ser and estar. Maria took the time to explain the differences. She is very patient and goes over anything you don’t understand. She gave me homework to double check my surety of the verbs. She truly wants you to understand everything fully before moving onto the next lesson. Extremely grateful to have her as a professor.

Awesome Portuguese Teacher!

I have worked with Maria for more than a year now. Her teaching is excellent, and she helps students to excel in Portuguese language examinations (European and Brazilian dialect). Her knowledge is incredibly useful, especially if you see yourself wanting to become fluent or relocate to a Portuguese speaking country. 5 Stars!

Knowledgable and patient tutor

María is a very experienced tutor. My goal is to pass the A2 exam in Portuguese, and she has helped me a lot since the first lesson. She provides very well-prepared materials for the lessons, and she teachers in a fun and simple way. Maria very patiently teaches the pronunciation to me, making it interesting to learn Portuguese.

Maria helped me get off to a great start with reviewing the basics of European Portuguese and pronunciation. She let me know what to do before our next lesson. You’ll be glad you’re working with her.

Flexible and Structured

I am an individual who needs structure and goals to focus. Maria has done a good job at helping me plot out some goals and how we will do it. I also appreciate the accountability of homework. I am capable of studying on my own but with her assignments before our next lesson I am able to use that and my own personal material to learn more. I really feel like just from the last few lessons that I am gaining a better understanding of Portuguese.
