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!

As the result of expansion during colonial times, Portuguese speakers are also found in Goa, Daman and Diu in India;[5] in Batticaloa on the east coast of Sri Lanka, in the Indonesian island of Flores ; and in Malacca in Malaysia.

George explained things very simply.
Alexander J.
George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.
Tracie S.
George is totally passionate about teaching. He encourages the kids to practice and do their best. He has great knowledge and understanding of music theory. He is pleasant, easy going and works really well with kids. Overall really good teacher. Recommend!

What makes French lessons unique with me is the fact that my lessons are very interactive. I make sure that my students are engaged and participate fully by reading out loud, asking and answering questions. In addition, my lessons are not a one-size-fits-all. I do customize my lesson based on the students' goals and successful/suitable learning methods.
All ages are welcome. Teaching French is more than a profession. It is my passion.
French is not only my mother tongue but my most favorite subject in school! I will be happy and honored to be your teacher!
