Hi, there! My name is Rita S., I am a native speaker of Portuguese originally from Brazil. I have more than 15 years of experience teaching Portuguese language and culture to professional adults on some of the leading international institutions in the D.C. area, from beginner through advanced proficiency levels.

I am happy to tailor my lessons to meet my students' needs and style. I have a lot of experience as online instructor, using Skype, Webex, and FaceTime to deliver lessons to remote students who are unable to attend classes in person.

I am a great advocate of good pronunciation, no matter what is your native language. And if you are a Spanish speaker, I can help you to overcome the specific challenges that Spanish speakers face when learning Portuguese.

Culture provides the environment in which languages develop, so culture is an essential part of my lessons, including Brazilian music and history.

Let’s talk and see how I can help you to learn Portuguese in a fun, ...

There are less than a handful of Cantonese learning materials out there, and most of them are outdated. With over 9 years of teaching experience, I will help you speak the language with confidence and make sure you don't sound like a time traveler from the past. (But if you are one, hit me up!)

My students include beginners who would like to try something new; sons & daughters who wish to communicate with their family; people who are interested in Chinese culture; and professionals who want to speak fluently in business settings. Send me a message today and see how we can reach your goals together! All ages welcome!

Being not of college age anymore, attending my first class (private no less) was nerve wracking but exciting. Alice makes you feel so comfortable right away and was very prepared, organized, and went at a speed that was easy to follow. She tries to understand your learning goals as well as your current proficiency in order to judge how to organize the lesson. Highly recommend and looking forward to all my future classes with her!

Unfortunately, yesterday was my last lesson with Mark, as I am moving to Guam. I would definitely not be giving up my weekly lesson with him if that weren't the case! I've learned so much in the short couple months taking lessons from him. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level. Very helpful and kind. :)

I just had my first upright bass lesson with Charles. Playing an instrument, when you know how, is one of the most fun things you can do, But getting lessons can be stressful. This was relaxing, pleasant and fun. Stress free. And I learned a lot. I can't wait to get back on that bass and practice this stuff.

As a singer, voice over actor, and vocal coach I can help you locate and hone a dialect or accent. My specialties include various British accents, Australian accents, and regional US accents (Southern, New York, Boston, Midwest, etc). During a session I would help run lines with you (or provide them) so you can practice the accent and get feedback on how to improve and not "fall out" of character.

Norwood is extremely humble and easy to work with. He never made me feel like I wasn’t good enough but always made me feel like I could reach a higher level of excellence for my unique range. He embraces each voice as its own and meets the student where they are at. He is extremely knowledgeable on how sounds are created, how space is made in the voice, and he is able to communicate that knowledge effectively to the student. In short, I loved having Norwood as a teacher.
Tina
My 10-year-old son Lucky started taking lessons with Norwood a few months ago, and it’s like a star has been born! He has seen a big boost in his confidence, his pitch has gotten much better, and he really enjoys the lessons. He has even started performing! The changes have happened very fast.
Jordan
Norwood is an excellent teacher! He is very knowledgeable and is very kind. I was always very shy to sing, but Norwood helped me overcome that!

"So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey."

"Gabriel is a fantastic teacher. Being a singer and an actor he has the ability to help you hit the correct sounds using simple exercises that can be later practiced at home.

In few lessons that we had he helped me a lot. He is patient, encouraging and provides a comfortable environment during lessons. He is able to guide you and gives a strong foundation to learn the American Accent.

Highly recommend!"

"Perfect temperament for working with my 7 year old. Sung Je K adapts to my sons whims and, when needed, drew him back into the lesson using them. Ex. My son, on a suger high from a holliday party at school, started blurting out random words. Sung Je K. Took those words, and used them in the lesson. It was fantastic. Sung Je K is attentive and wants his students to learn. A+ teacher!"
