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.

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.

I lived in Manaus, Brazil for 2 years as a volunteer proselytizing missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a result of talking to people all day, every day, I attained full fluency and command of the Portuguese language. I further polished my abilities in the language by taking an advanced Portuguese grammar class and Brazilian history class (both taught exclusively in Portuguese) during my Bachelor's degree at Brigham Young University. I know the language intimately, and can provide the highest quality of instruction to students of the language.
Drew won the 2017 Myrna Brown Artist Competition (an international competition with no age limit) hosted by the Texas Flute Society. He was recently invited to be a guest artist at the 2018 Texas Flute Society Annual Convention, where he taught several masterclasses and gave solo performances.
I seek students who share a love of learning. I am not looking for the finest musicians or highest IQ's, because those gifts are not required to learn and grow. My greatest experiences as a teacher have come from when I work with students who just want to learn more.
I hold my students to high expectations when it comes to practicing. Each week, I give students individual assignments that I know will improve their learning and playing abilities, and I expect those assignments to be fulfilled by the next lesson. A failure to do so will result in frustration for both myself and my student.
However, I know that nobody is perfect, and I myself have had my share of weeks where life happens, and I simply don't progress as much as I would like. As a teacher, I understand this perfectly, and I will always strive to listen to my students, and work with them through their difficulties or struggles.
***What To Expect From Lessons***
I bring a lot of energy to lessons! I am very passionate about teaching and helping students grow, and I make sure to bring that to every lesson. I give concise, direct feedback to students, making sure to give them the information they need to understand how they can achieve their goals and grow.
I am very perceptive of students' feelings, and I take care to be sensitive to their needs each week. My worst fear as a teacher is to cause hurt feelings, so I will do everything in my power to avoid that!
I am an expert in the field of music and the flute, so you can be rest assured that the quality of instruction will be the highest.

My impression on day one had been that he is highly motivated, energetic and professional. His relative youth combined with authority makes him a great teacher for teens. First impressions were correct.
My kids like him a lot and they are already playing recognizable tunes. :)
I heartily recommend Drew for Flute and Piano.

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
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.

Learn Portuguese from a native speaker
I'm a piano and guitar appreciator since childhood and music amplifies our horizon and vision of life. Now, in the same way that someone gave me my first musical instructions, I am doing the same, giving lessons to beginners.
I've been working with excel, ms access, linux for almost 30 years (Ms project 15YRS), I basically started when I was 16 while I was assisting my dad who was an state auditor and had to do a lot with accounting data.
Since the good usage of information values gold, I have been using these IT tools intensively throughout my whole professional career and they definitely provided me a good growth.
So, now I'm sharing part of the lessons learned during these years, teaching these important computer skills: Excel, Ms Access, Linux, Ms Project.
Looking forward to meeting you.
