Candida is quite possibly the best music (singing) instructor I've had, seen or heard of. She's got a wide range of talents and is able to hone in on a specific students problems and where they need to develop. I have recordings of my initial songs from when I started a year ago and today and there's a night and day difference.

I (being a bad student) hadn't actually recorded anything in a few months and after implementing some of the techniques she recommended and practicing for a few months, I finally recorded a song we'd been working on...and...I didn't even recognize my own voice and sound. It was that much better.

She's excellent, fun, and funny. I can't recommend her highly enough.

She had clear teaching objectives and was able to stay flexible with my daughter's abilities. She provided feedback and homework assignments. We are excited to continue weekly classes with Marina!

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.

About Rick F.

I built a system to teach language that will help you so much. In the first class you already experience the interaction that you can have with things that are surrounding you. Teaching is my passion and knowing how to dummy down is my forte. You need more than a teacher, you need a trainer, coach and motivator and this is what I am offering!

About Rick
I have an energetic personality, which makes me more than a teacher, makes me your coach. I enjoy spending my time composing assimilations that I use as teaching tools. Life is too short for the amount of hobbies and skills that I love pursuing. I am bilingual, aircraft mechanic, I teach music since I was 15 years old, I love people, I love fixing stuff. I consider myself to be spiritual and an eternal learner.

Native Portuguese speaker

About Stefanie
I’ve always been passionate about technology and analytical thinking, therefore I pursued a career in Psychology, migrating to Web Development after a couple of years. This transition happened when I started learning to code and saw in it the joy of applying the acquired knowledge in functional complete applications.

Having that in mind, I went after a code Bootcamp, in order to improve my programming skills. Fortunately, I was granted a scholarship to study at Ironhack, an immersive 400 hours Bootcamp. Currently, I work as a MERN Web Developer, meaning that I feel confident around the following technologies: JavaScript, React, Node, Express, AWS, MongoDB, HTML, CSS, Git.

Teaching people the ability to have the creative power of developing their own application motivates me. I'm also interested in Backend Development, as APIs, Cloud, i
nfrastructure, data, Docker, Kubernetes and so on really delight me for their range of possibilities.

Looking forward to talking to you soon!
