I have been taking lessons with Candida for a few months. She is the most amazing instructor I have had the privilege of knowing. Her patience and understanding to helping me learn to sing and play the piano is exemplified by the fact that English is not my first language, yet she had never given up on me, even when I felt I could not do it. Her positive attitude and supportive nature made me never want to give up. Learning something new is something everyone should strive to achieve no matter what age you are and Candida is the best instructor if singing is your passion. Thank you Candida for never giving up on me. (Review translated from the Greek to English language).

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational Portuguese practice ONLY (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

About Kenji Luis
I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

I am a native speaker, I will be able to teach my students pronunciation , grammar, and conversation. I will tenaciously but patiently help them master the language and all the nuances that make Brazilian Portuguese such a unique language.

About Marcia
Hi,there! My name is Marcia and I am really excited to meet you. I've been teaching ESL since 1990, Brazilian Portuguese since 2001 and TOEIC preparation since 2006. I have loved helping my students master English as a Second Language grammar, vocabulary, and conversation. It is thrilling to see my students accomplish their goals when they are able to converse, read, and write in their target language,and when they improve their comprehension and pronunciation skills. My academic background is one hundred percent language oriented. I am a translator for Brazilian Portuguese but have worked as a teacher since I graduated because teaching is my passion and learning is my passion.

I am a very enthusiastic teacher and I have been voted the best teacher of the year virtually every year. I use a communicative approach and my goal is t
o keep the teacher-student talk time respectively at a 30% and 70% ratio.

I can't wait for the opportunity to help you reach your linguistic goal.

South Pasadena, CA

I studied 6 semesters of Portuguese with Brazilian teachers. I love Brazilian Music. We can work with vocabulary, verbs, phrases, pronunciation, grammar, writing, and why not singing songs!

About Belen
I'm a music composer/songwriter originally from Ecuador, who is also a life-long ice figure skater. I graduated with a masters degree from Berklee College of Music Valencia, in the Scoring for Film & TV program. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Contemporary Music back in Ecuador, as well I I studied piano and Portuguese (as part of my love for Brazilian Popular Music).

I'm teaching again because I'd love to contribute with my skills and connect with new people in their learning experience.

Ice skating taught me discipline, patience and perseverance in life. As I my body reached injuries from years of skating, I'm not training anymore, I hope to translate my passion for this sport through teaching and supporting other skaters. All ages welcome!

My love for songwriting and singing is combined with languages. In our language cl
asses we will learn from culture, history and research of the customs of different south American countries. We can also develop project that involve learning songs in Spanish (and/or Portuguese). We can also practice a lot of conversation about your favorite topics!
