I see Cândida both online and at her studio. She's great. An excellent teacher. I'm beginning piano later in life and Cândida is a great motivator and has a broad understanding of teaching which permits her to adapt her teaching based on your learning style.

I've taken 3 lessons with Candida and I am blown away. I started taking lessons when I was a child, but had given up the instrument going into adulthood. Candida has helped awaken a love for music that I never knew I had. We are studying technique, music theory, and learning methods which are allowing me to not only learn faster, but appreciate and understand the progress that I am making. This multiples the enjoyment that I am getting from the instrument. Candida also does a good job of motivating you and contextualizing your progress and your goals. I am very excited that I am taking lessons with her!

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.

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.

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.

I taught myself how to speak Portuguese and then I studied 2 semester of Portuguese at a community college. I participated in meetings where I improved my listening and speaking skills. I currently work as a Graduate Assistant for a Portuguese language and culture professor. I work on translating documents and improving the Portuguese curriculum for the lower division courses.

About Jorge
I’m a French Graduate Teaching Associate and a Portuguese Graduate Assistant at SDSU. I will obtain my MA in French spring 2020. Then, I plan to continue my studies at UC Berkley where I want to obtain a PhD in Romance Languages and Linguistics. I obtained a BA in French, a BA in Linguistics, a minor in Italian Studies and a TESL certificate from SDSD back in spring of 2018.

I have learned several languages that I would consider myself a language aficionado. I understand the time and dedication that it takes to learn a foreign language specially when you don’t get the daily exposure to the language and culture. Therefore I consider myself a patient person that wants the best for his students regardless of the language they are learning. What matters is the satisfaction of the student in obtaining their language goal.

My goal is t
o obtain my PhD and teach French, and Italian language and linguistics.
