About Ben

First thing to know about me is that I love Portuguese! I'm a fluent Portuguese speaker but I am a native English speaker. I know what it is to learn the Portuguese language from ground zero, I've been there! I have worked hard to be able to speak like I do now, and I love helping others to get to the same place. I have experience teaching languages to new learners while living in Brazil, and I am currently getting officially certified in the Portuguese language.

I think that my favorite thing about tutoring is helping my students make real progress. I know how frustrating it can be when different programs don't seem to be helping you actually learn the language and so I strive to help my students make and see progress.

My qualifications in Portuguese are unique because I understand both the technical correctness of the grammatical side as well as the actual vernacular used by natives on the day to day basis. I can give you all the tips you need to avoid sounding like a new speaker while also understanding the grammar behind it all. I am trained by BYUs Portuguese program in addition to my time in Brazil.

Please contact me! I've learned to love being as open and friendly as my Brazilian friends and would love to hear from you even if it is to answer questions. You can contact me anytime; I am always checking my emails so I will get back to you very quickly with any requests. My schedule is also flexible and I am willing to travel to meet with you.
