I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker. I can teach you the "real" spoken Brazilian Portuguese from Rio de Janeiro. I have been teaching Brazilian Portuguese since 2013 in NYC.
It is time to achieve your goals, and I definitely can help you with that. I dedicated my life to the "Art of Teaching", and I have been helping people to improve their music skills ever since. I LOVE to teach, and because of this passion, I know how to listen to you, design a perfect lesson that will be exactly what you are looking for, and make your learning process enjoyable!
I have worked with Bill as a vocalist for several years, and have always been impressed with his singing voice. Now having studied with him privately, I am even more impressed with his teaching skills—fun, encouraging, and informative, his lessons are not to be missed! Also, very reasonably priced!

I've worked with Bill in multiple capacities since we met. He has an incredible instrument and a fantastic attitude. He is always willing to help you with whatever your particular need may be, and he's a very kind and engaging vocal instructor. He is passionate about what he does, and equally passionate about helping you with what you do!

Bill is an awesome instructor! He's versatile, so I can go to him for arrangements issues, vocal coaching, choir questions and whenever I need to record an accompaniment for a song. AND he's also fun! I highly recommend!

I'm a native English speaker who learned Brazilian Portuguese on the streets, as I like to call it, while I lived in Brazil for a couple of years. I have attained full command of the language, with intimate knowledge of the grammar structure as well as an extensive vocabulary. I've been speaking fluently for close to 5 years now. In that time, I've successfully convinced many Brazilians that I too was a Brazilian, meaning that I've completely gotten rid of the American accent. I did this in both Brazil and the U.S. I still consistently speak with native Brazilians and always am seeking to expand my own vocabulary. To add on, my girlfriend is a native Brazilian, and her father is currently seeking his master's degree (well, the Brazilian equivalent) in Portuguese (like, somebody here in the U.S. receiving their graduate degree in English). Each lesson is catered to the individual's needs and goals. So, as Ice Cube and his crew, NWA once famously stated, during lessons with me, you're ...
I teach/tutor a myriad of topics and love doing it. I'm currently attending the Georgia Institute of Technology, studying aerospace engineering and Russian. I love science and math (particularly when it has to do with space stuff). I'm super outgoing and a very laid back, chill person all at the same time (being like this has produced quite the stories).
Working with others and helping them succeed has been something I've loved to do for a while now. While I was in high school, I was a coach for one of the local swim teams and had a blast getting to teach people how to swim and such, and the best part was getting to connect with those kids and seeing them succeed during the swim meets.
Once I graduated, I had the privilege to serve as a full time volunteer in Brazil for a couple years, where my sole focus, every day, was to help o
thers to improve the quality of their life. In doing so, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet new people everyday and see people's lives drastically improve. Another cool part of this experience was that I got to teach English as a second language to people who'd never spoken it before. They loved it, and in the time that I did teach it, students went from speaking no English to being able to form basic sentences and have simple conversations.
Now in college, I've strived to continue this pattern with the little free time that I get during the week and on the weekends due to my classes. Throughout all of this, I've discovered how easy it is for me to connect with people and how much fun it can be.
What I bring to the lessons: I always ensure to provide the highest quality lessons and ensure that the student easily understands the materials. I'll provide materials that I know will assist the student to master the concepts.
My expectations: Learning requires the student to put in effort. Any assignments I give, I will expect them to be completed. I understand that sometimes one of "those weeks" comes around where life hits us in the face, but it's not every week.
Your expectations: You've come to me obviously to learn something new, and I intend to go above and beyond those expectations.
I wrote 5 star review (would give more if could) But showing as 4 stars... not sure why. So writing another one! But I can't say enough great things about Andrew. After 1 tutoring session my son had so many "ah ha" moments. I am so thankful and full of joy. My son is actually "getting it" and may even see how math could be fun...lol.

Andrew was amazing with my 15 yr old son. I am full of joy! My son had so many 'ah ha' moments and actually starting to see math (trig) can be fun. Andrew is an amazing tutor and my son felt so comfortable working with him. I am so thankful and will definitely continue tutoring lessons. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I teach a Portuguese course of children (with videos, songs, and fun ways to practice language!) and I have taught Portuguese for two years as part of a structure course for English speakers. Whether you just want a few lessons to help with conversation for an upcoming trip or you would like to work towards fluency, I'm here to help!

I hired Bruno to help me comprehend my book for class. He showed up and genuinely cared that I was getting it. He showed me a note taking idea that to me seemed that if I just wrote a couple of ideas down I’d go back and know where I was as far as going back and studying. He asked if I needed to write this point down and basically showed how to do the job. Great work.

Mr. Barbosa is a very outgoing person who always checks in on his students before we begin the lesson. At the
beginning of the lesson, we start with warm-ups so our voice is
ready to sing high or low notes. When you first start with Mr. Bar-
bosa, he will have you sing multiple songs and scales so he can
learn your vocal range. Mr. Barbosa makes sure that you understand
the content and if you don't, he is helpful and explains it in a way we
can comprehend. Lessons are a great way to improve your singing.
I’m becoming more comfortable performing in front of my peers.
I’m Brazilian so I can teach you how to speak like a native. Personalized lessons according to students goals.
I'm a rock blues guitar player, graduated from the Los Angeles College of Music. I've played with some of the most renowned musicians of nowadays, such as Guthrie Govan and Philip Bynoe (Steve Vai).
My debut album was released in 2016, featuring some special guests such as the guitar legend Scott Henderson. I've toured all over Brazil, Mexico and the U.S. promoting my original music and giving guitar masterclasses. I have over 10 years of experience teaching guitar (electric and acoustic), ukulele and bass.
Classes that are fun and easy to understand. Start speaking on the very first class. Classes customized to the student’s need.
I am originally from Brazil and Portuguese is my first language. I have a BA in Language and Literature. I also have experience as a Portuguese Interpreter. I have been tutoring Portuguese, English and Math since 2007. I tutor students of any age.
Charlene is an excellent teacher. Her lesson demonstrated that she is an experienced instructor with a passion for teaching. She was fully engaged and encouraged me to go forward with my Portuguese language learning. I enjoyed our first lesson which included assessment, grammar and extremely helpful pronunciation cues. I recommend her highly.
Beginner and intermediate lessons. I have had a passion for the Portuguese language the moment I visited Brazilian soil 13 years ago and learned of their unique culture and romantic language. I lived in Brazil for two years and in Portugal for 4 months and will teach you the prominent accents from either place. I have a bachelors in Portuguese and have had previous employment opportunity teaching it. I will not only teach you but provide sources for you to utilize so that with each lesson you make large improvements.
Portuguese is my life and passion. I have lived in Brazil for two years and Portugal for 3 months--I understand and can teach the accents from both places. I am a Portuguese teacher but I also practice medicine on the side as a Physician Assistant. I previously taught Portuguese to students who needed to develop and learn the language in a matter of 2 months so that they could jump right into working and providing service in Brazil full-time. The best way to learn the language is through a variety of channels, such as music, videos, interpersonal communication, and various apps. I will utilize resources that are enjoyable for students to do at home to maximize their learning that is specific to them.
Olá! My name is Ozioma and I am SO stoked that you are interested in learning Portuguese! Learning a foreign language gives you glimpses into a different culture, its customs, values, and how they see the world. I have had the pleasure of living in Belo Horizonte, Brazil for two years, working with a non-profit organization as a translator. Portuguese is a beautiful language, with many nuances. It’s speakers communicate not simply through their words, but with their tone, their emotion. I get that learning a new language at times, can feel overwhelming, which is why I would love to help! Vamos?
Hello there! My name is Ozi! I am a native of Nigeria, but raised in Atlanta, Ga. I love music, photography, and travel, and would love to be your tutor!
"great teacher! native brazilian which is so great! :)"
"First lesson was great! Exactly the instruction I was looking for!!!"
"First class and Marcia beats any program I've ever used. I know working with her is going to be a great experience."
"Marcia is amazing."
"Maria is a wonderful teacher. Technological difficulties with online sessions was the only reason for not giving five stars."
"Great first lesson!! It was very organized and I loved going over in detail the song I picked. Thanks Candida! Looking forward to the next."
"I have been working with Jaqueline for about 8 months now, and can say that she is a very good teacher. She will focus on your strengths and use them to h
elp you learn. She remains flexible to schedule needs and keeps good notes on your progress and what you have learned so far as well as where you are going. I need to learn Portuguese for my work and so she was very focused on keeping my lessons moving from the very basics to ultimately technical terms and meeting conversations. I don't believe I would be productive without her help."
"Joneide is a great teacher. She incorporated different ways of teaching that made the learning environment better for us as students. She was also very p
atient with the students that struggled the most and always encouraged us to improve our skills."
"Teacher Nicolas was AMAZING. I really needed the classes in order to travel to Brazil and continue my career studies but I had no idea about Portuguese. I
t was difficult at first but Nicolas had a great methodology that helped me catch up in no time! I'm now very happy almost finishing my studies and speaking quite like a native."
