About John

Hi there! My name is John and I'm excited about the possible opportunity to meet in the near future. I had the opportunity to be totally submerged in the Brazilian culture for two years, where I lived as a normal Brazilian would. During this time I was able to become fluent in Portuguese to a native level. After I returned I took college level courses in Portuguese to retain and further my knowledge of the culture and language, these were graduate level courses where we studied literature and economics (giving presentations in Portuguese). I also passed the Celpe-Bras language test(the only test honored by the Brazilian Government for fluency in Portuguese). I'm confident in my Portuguese skills for any level of student. Although I have not used my Portuguese skills in a professional environment, I have been a certified trainer for a large Corporation where I would coach and teach new hires one-on-one for several days. Not only do I have the Portuguese knowledge, I have extensive coaching experience with my previous position.

I'd love to talk with prospective clients in order to get to know each other better :)I look forward to helping you achieve your Portuguese language goals no matter what they be!

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.

Portuguese

I lived in Brazil for 2 consecutive years where I had structured learning courses on the language and was living with native speakers. When I returned I continued my learning taking upper college courses in Portuguese where we gave presentations in Portuguese on a variety of subjects, as well as wrote papers in Portuguese. I also took the Celp-Bras test which consists of writing, reading, listening, and speaking in Portuguese. It is the only test accepted by the Brazilian Government for fluency in the language.
