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 ...

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!

Hi i'm 21 years old and I native Spanish speaker. I was studying psicology at the University but I left it because I had to move from my country, now I'm studying English and other languages.

About my classes, if you are young, you may feel comfortable learning with someone with whom you will not feel an age barrier. You can tell me any topic that you are interested about and we can talk about it to learn.

Learning another language is difficult, especially when the topics you should see move away from your interests.

Do you like video games, books, rap, k-pop or rock ? We can learn Spanish speaking about any topic you want.

"I have been working with Jean-Luc for about 2 years now. I had zero schooling in French before beginning with Jean-Luc. I have learned all vocabulary and sentencing structures on my own and with Jean-Luc. Although I cannot speak yet with ease, I certainly know WAY more French than I had ever learned in the 5 years of Spanish that I had in school. Jean-Luc is very patient and asks lots of questions to help with your conversational skills. I cannot recommend Jean-Luc enough!!"

Japanese Writing Systems for Beginners: Learn Hiragana

With three different writing systems, learning Japanese can be confusing for beginners. It's much easier to break the systems down, and focus on one at a time. Here, Japanese teacher Kaoru N. shares his tips to help you learn hiragana...  There are three types of letters in the Japanese language: hiragana, katakana, and kanji. Hiragana and katakana are based on sounds and pronunciation. In kanji, each character has its own meaning. Hiragana characters are the most fundamental and basi …
