Portuguese (português or, in full, língua portuguesa)[nb 1] is a Romance language and the sole official language of Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe.[4] It also has co-official language status in Macau (China), Equatorial Guinea and East Timor. 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.

About George
I am so glad you’re here!

The music lessons for young children are full of fun, interactive activities with iPads apps and traditional methods that not only help develop a strong musical foundation and build essential life skills, but offer a unique bonding experience for you and your child.

Discover for yourself why families love my innovative music lessons for kids.

YES! Music Matters!

The curriculum is built on research that proves MUSIC MATTERS. Music affects virtually every aspect of development and when young children are consistently engaged by music during the “musical window” they benefit at many levels.

What about private lessons?

Do I believe in private lessons? You bet! But I know from experience that private lessons are most valuable for older kids who have the ability to concentrate in a one-to-one setti
ng.

With this Private setting you will have a solid foundation in keyboard skills and music theory and typically excel quickly in their continued music education and when learning other instruments. The education and experiences a child has in my music program sets them up for success with private instruction.

Music Program

Builds spatial-temporal reasoning skills critical for greater success in math and science studies.

Music students out-perform non-music students on achievement tests in reading and math.

Music students receive more academic honors and awards than non-music students.

Develops social and emotional skills including the ability to relate to others and better express ideas, and less likely to have behavior/discipline problems.

I offer up to 2 recitals a year so that you can perform everything you know.

Feel free to reach out and let's setup some lessons.

Thank you, George F.

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.

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.

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.

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 help 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.

Learn Portuguese from a Native. You will have fun while learning. I believe that the best and quickest way to learn is by falling in love with the language, culture, food... something that will motivate you to keep focus and excited to learn more and more. Along the course you will taste typical Brazilian food and we will talk about it, you will learn To dance Samba while improving your vocabulary. Studying is boring learning is amazing.

About Raquel
Oi. My name is Raquel I am 30 years old. I am from Brazil. I speak 5 languages and I will teach you things and methods that I use that helped me to learn more effectively and in a funny way.

Park City, UT

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.

About Andrew
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.
