Private Portuguese Teacher

I learned all the Portuguese I know from taking many different Portuguese classes at college, including grammar, linguistics, and literature and from living in the "Portuguese House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters. I specialize in teaching Portuguese to speakers of Spanish, but I can also teach anyone who wants to learn, even without any other prior language experience. I have grown to love the Portuguese language and the people of the various Portuguese-speaking countries around the world.

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!
Jen A.
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 give Gina a 5 star because it doesn't have a 10. She is awesome, smart, fun, and caring. I take Spanish and makes so much easier because she also speaks fluent Portuguese (my native language), and she can explain the difference between both language. I highly recommend Gina :)

Day 1 of drumming lessons! David answered all my questions led the conversation and helped ease my need to be perfect! I am excited to practice the skills we worked on and excited to see where the next lessons go!! Thanks David for a great 1st experience!

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.

She was very quick at identifying the areas that needed extra attention and customized the class based on my work needs. She takes great interest in exploiting the student's potential and constantly comes up with new fun but very challenging lessons. I have traveled on business to Brazil and thanks to her I was able to feel confidence during my meetings. I would recommend her to anyone that is trying to learn Portuguese."
