I am a native Portuguese speaker with many years of experience as a language teacher and as a translator. I offer tutoring in both conversational and formal Portuguese (grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, usage) to students of all levels and backgrounds with personalized lessons. These lessons will be fun, geared toward your personal goals and interests, and will always take into account your learning style and pace.

I tutor both private individuals and small groups. We can meet at my studio in Irvine, anywhere in the Irvine/Newport Beach area, or online. My schedule is flexible and includes mornings, evenings and weekends.

If you want to:

- prepare for a trip to Brazil or Portugal,
- become more fluent in order to excel in social or business settings
- brush up on what you have already learned,
- or truly master the Portuguese language,

then I am ready to help you reach your goals by developing a lesson plan that will best suit your needs.

I look forward to ...

About Joao

I believe that anyone can learn an instrument and, even more importantly, that everyone can enjoy the process of learning music. I lived in Brazil, Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, and in Boston before moving to New York. Moving around so much has brought me in contact with all sorts of people an

If you're reading this, you are very lucky because you've just found the most amazing music teacher!
Our son has studied piano with Joao for the past four years. He started with Joao when he was six and continues to this day. He loves Joao. Joao is a patient, intuitive and adaptive teacher that provides incredible instruction, in any music genre. He honed in on our son's musical interests early on, making learning piano fun and interesting. We often say, Joao is not just teaching our son piano, he is giving him a music education, introducing him to an array of amazing pieces from different genres. He's a rare talent both as a teacher and musician. We feel incredibly lucky to have found him. You will too!

I studied jazz piano with Joao for over a year. In my time working with him, I learned a tremendous amount. Joao is both an extremely talented musician and a skilled instructor. He clearly cares a great deal about his students and their progress. He was always patient (especially during weeks when my practicing had been slow) and both encouraging and supportive of my efforts to master new concepts in jazz. Joao has an excellent sense for what his students want to accomplish in their musical explorations, and an ability to tailor his lessons to the student’s unique goals. He has an impressive knowledge of both the history of jazz and music theory which makes him an incredible resource for learning about the jazz idiom. Last but not least, Joao was very personable and fun to talk to, and I always a enjoyed working with him. He is an outstanding teacher.

Joao is an amazing piano teacher. I would highly recommend taking lessons with him!

I've been teaching Chinese for almost 8 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese language, culture and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start learning and speaking simple practical Chinese characters and sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to write and speak Chinese fluently.I typically use worksheets, living textbooks,Chinese songs, role play and more. I love working with students of all experience levels.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.
Rachel G.
Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

As an international student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, language is always one of my most familiar tools. From my past experience of tutoring high schoolers and adults, I believe a language is not only about vocabulary, grammar or accent, but also built by the culture and history behind. I'd like to help students to not only be good at a language, but also get to know the the people and the place that make the language valuable. Learning a language should never be boring while we discover the mysterious origin of every rule and word together.

About Meiling

I always introduce myself as a people person. Since elementary school, I have involved in various activities that enable me to interact with people. The interaction or communication among people makes the society and our lives more fun and fulfilled, and we cannot accomplish this without languages.

Mandarin is a key language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language.

I was born and raised in China, and studied English in my college education. I am fluent in both English and Mandarin as well as cantonese if you would like to learn some cantonese. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in English and professional proficiency in Mandarin.

I'll teach you depending on your level and age. For kids, I use fun, interactive storytelling. For the adults, I'll dive into concepts like the origins of the language, nuances of the intonations, all the while teaching you vocabulary and sentence structure. I'll also adjust my lessons based on your feedback, your learning style and your goals!

please let me know your plan and your enthusiasm for Chinese and we make it happen together.

cheers

Hello, my name is Ariel and I am hoping to be your next ASL teacher. I am immersed in the ASL language everyday which has allowed me to become fluent. As I continue to increase my knowledge in ASL, I have become efficient in teaching this great language to others.

Why should you take lessons with me?
First, I work at the pace of the student, consider your goals, and your strengths/ limitations. Every lesson will be custom-made for you only. Second, I have received training and teachings from professors and interpreters from College and Universities. Therefore, I am trained to be familiarized with different settings and subjects, such as medical, educational, astronomy, computer/technology, and law.

I am dedicated to teach ASL to every student ready to learn. I am very eager to teach you this extremely unique and amazing language. I am also eager to meet you and begin our learning adventure!

I have a tricky schedule, and she has been very flexible and patient with finding time for me and my many time changes. Her lessons are very clear and put together well and she is patient and helpful with her teachings. She will take extra time to make sure everything is clear and understood before moving onto the next topic. I can't wait to continue learning Italian with Valentina!"

"I have been taking on-line lessons on and off for several months with this great Russian teacher. I did have some basic knowledge of Russian at the time. My teacher, Alexandra, has been great. She allowed me to go at my own pace and review material, if needed. I work in the medical field, and I received material and assignments related to this area, which was helpful..The most productive part of the the lessons were the times spent on conversing back and forth.

Having lessons on-line does take some self discipline, especially if you are working full time. However, it does encourage regular review of Russian so that you are ready for the next lesson. Alexandra is a GREAT teacher!!"

How to Conjugate French Reflexive Verbs

Need to brush up on French reflexive verbs ? In this lesson, French tutor Carol Beth  teaches how to conjugate French reflexive verbs in the present and past tenses... French (and many other romance languages) include a category of verbs, called reflexive verbs, that are treated a little differently than in English. Indeed, we have the same concept in English. We might say that we wash our face, we dress ourselves, and so on. That is, we are taking action towards ourselves. In Frenc …
