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!

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!

Private Portuguese Teacher

Beginner and intermediate lessons. I have had a passion for the Portuguese language the moment I visited Brazilian soil 13 years ago and learned of their unique culture and romantic language. I lived in Brazil for two years and in Portugal for 4 months and will teach you the prominent accents from either place. I have a bachelors in Portuguese and have had previous employment opportunity teaching it. I will not only teach you but provide sources for you to utilize so that with each lesson you make large improvements.

About Andrew

Portuguese is my life and passion.
I have lived in Brazil for two years and Portugal for 3 months--I understand and can teach the accents from both places.
I am a Portuguese teacher but I also practice medicine on the side as a Physician Assistant.
I previously taught Portuguese to students who needed to develop and learn the language in a matter of 2 months so that they could jump right into working and providing service in Brazil full-time.
The best way to learn the language is through a variety of channels, such as music, videos, interpersonal communication, and various apps. I will utilize resources that are enjoyable for students to do at home to maximize their learning that is specific to them.

"Joneide takes great care to utilize relevant as well as interesting materials to enhance her language instruction. Authentic music and texts helped me to

"great teacher! native brazilian which is so great! :)"

"Joneide has been my Portuguese instructor for different level courses at Brazil in Chicago. She performs in a very professional and well organized manner.
In a class with Joneide you can expect to hear and learn a lot from her native language at a very comfortable pace. She is excellent at introducing students to the language, correct pronunciation and much of Brazil’s culture. She is very patient and accommodates to different levels. Her classes always have an enjoyable way to learn such as fun stories or music. I appreciate that she takes the time to introduce the language that may be spoken in a professional environment as well as what you would hear in a casual street conversation. Joneide always has a smile in her face, which to me is very valuable as she loves her job."
