Private Portuguese Teacher

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.

Private Portuguese Teacher

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational Portuguese practice ONLY (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

About Kenji Luis

I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

Private Portuguese Teacher

Gina has a BA and MA in Portuguese language and literature. She has family in Brasil and teaches both Brazilian and European Portuguese. She is very active with the Brazilian community in her city, promoting the Portuguese language and culture. She does translation and interpretation work as well as tutoring and teaching. Gina travels frequently to Brasil and Portugal and is very happy to share her passion for the Portuguese language.

About Gina

Hello!
I am Gina and I am a specialist in Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French. I have been teaching and tutoring foreign languages since 1990. I teach adults, college students, high school and elementary students. I have taught in schools, community programs, language classes for businesses, in person and online. I can help you prepare for an exam or class, teach you language for business or travel- or just for the love of the language.

I have been multilingual since a young age and have always had a passion for languages. I studied multiple languages in school and went on to earn both a Bachelors and a Masters degree (University of Connecticut) in Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French language and literature.

I am an active member of multiple foreign language groups in my community, including the Alliance Française of Ch

arleston, Nuovo Cinema Italiano film club, Dante Society of Charleston, Cercle Littéraire, Brasileiros em Charleston, Conversemos en Español, and other conversation and language groups.

I do translation and interpretation work, travel extensively, do foreign language tours and am very passionate about sharing my love of the Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French languages.

My focus in teaching is how to acquire a foreign language just as one acquires their native language, making that language a part of one’s life.

Whether you are brand new to the language or have been studying for awhile- I would love to be your guide on your language journey!

I Connected very well with Gina. The fact that I’m Brazilian and she also speaks Portuguese is perfect.
She can show the difference and the mistakes we Brazilian do when we speak Spanish. Looking forward our next lesson.

I would whole-heartedly recommend 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.

Are you looking to quickly learn and communicate in Portuguese? Are you traveling abroad to Brazil and need to speak to people for business or school? My courses in Brazilian Portuguese language immersion will teach you the basics of conjugation and vocabulary specific to conversational Portuguese that will get you far on your travels. With over ten years of experience in the study of Latin languages, and personal immersion experiences in Brazil and Mozambique, I've been able to hone and master the craft of learning language through immersion. I learned to speak Portuguese fluently in less than two months, and you can too! Let's get off book and into the beautiful, dynamic culture of Brazil!

About Kaya

Hi!

I’m Kaya. I am a professional singer and entertainer, specializing in Jazz Music and Education. For five years I have played in a band singing in multiple languages such as Spanish and Portuguese, spanning genres such as Jazz, Gospel, Soul, Blues, Folk, R&B, Rock, Bossa Nova and Samba. I have a bachelor’s degree in Political Theory with a specialization in Latin languages and vocal performance. I play classical piano and classical guitar, in addition to vocal performance I have studied bossa nova rhythm guitar. I currently am teaching a residency to young students in Thailand called: "Voice and Rhythm"

I am a native New Yorker who grew up around people who spoke many languages from all over the globe. I am not a native speaker in Spanish or Portuguese, and so many of my peers would ask me: how is it you learned to speak th

ese languages so quickly and so fluently? The trick to learning a new language begins with confidence. Just like learning a new instrument, you don’t want to allow the mechanism of your tool to trip you up when you want to communicate. Through techniques of active listening, immersion, and cultural integration, I have been successful at teaching students how to blossom within a new language, culture, and music.

Paulo Freire, Brazilian author of a critically acclaimed book on pedagogy once said: “The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves.” When I teach, I like my students to be able to experience their own creativity within a new context, learning more about themselves through new eyes and perspective.

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.

About Paul

I hail from Walla Walla, Washington, home of the "famous" sweet onions. I can't begin to express how much I love languages!! I have studied 8 so far (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish, and Dutch) and I teach 5 (Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Japanese), and want to keep learning new languages throughout the rest of my life. I love to work with students so that's why I've kept my rates low--to make sure more people can have the opportunity to learn these languages. I have a down-to-earth style and I allow my students to guide their own learning in a student-structured, individualized way. As of June 2019, I have taught multiple students different languages, among whom are three students I have been teaching between 7 and 9 months, who have all improved considerably and continue to progress steadily

. I am positive I can help you come to understand the wonderful world that is language and to learn how amazing it is to be able to say the same thing in so many different ways, and how much better it is to be able to communicate with someone in his/her native language instead of having to resort to English. Let's do this!!

Note: I have not had any connectivity problems for quite a while now so be assured that I can provide quality instruction with no issues.

Portuguese Reviews

Paula
"I had the pleasure of having Joneide as a Portuguese language for a few different courses at Brazil in Chicago. She was a great teacher who made every cla
ss exciting and different. She was very organized and came to class each week with a lesson plan as well as different materials and activities to help us as we learned the Portuguese language. Although she made each class fun, she also challenged us by making sure we engaged in as much Portuguese dialogue as possible. She also made sure to correct our pronunciation so that we said each word correctly, which was something I was really grateful for. Also, aside from being a great instructor she was very friendly and made you feel comfortable asking any questions in the class setting. She also taught us a lot about the Brazilian culture and even did a cooking demo during one of our last classes, making Pão de queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread) for our class!"
