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!

Born and raised in NYC to parents who were born in the Philippines and spoke English as a second language; I can relate first-hand the challenges non-native English speakers are experiencing in their workplace, where colleagues, patients or family’s, may need any notice any changes.

I was born and raised in Japan. Learning second language is sometimes frustrating. I will explain Japanese with cultural background so you can understand better. I have taught from 5 years old to college students. I can do both teaching and toutering. Any age is welcome!!!

About Yuko

I was born and graduated college in Japan. After I worked there several years, I decided to come to the US to study more. As a piano teacher, I specialize for beginners. When you start playing, everybody realizes that your fingers don’t move as fast as you want to which is very normal. We are

I am very pleased with my first lesson! Yuko's method of instruction made it easy for me to catch on to patterns and to notice similarities to English and other languages. I am excited about how far I can go with her instruction.
Jessica
Yuko is very kind and patient. She is also very knowledgeable and explains everything in such a great way my 13 year old enjoyed her class very much.
Marcellin
My son really loved Yuko who replaced his previous teacher who is no longer with Takelessons. He knows how to play some kids songs already. But after their lesson, there is this an instant motivation to learn deeper.
He is now having learning with Yuko.
