I'm a native English speaker who learned Brazilian Portuguese on the streets, as I like to call it, while I lived in Brazil for a couple of years. I have attained full command of the language, with intimate knowledge of the grammar structure as well as an extensive vocabulary. I've been speaking fluently for close to 5 years now. In that time, I've successfully convinced many Brazilians that I too was a Brazilian, meaning that I've completely gotten rid of the American accent. I did this in both Brazil and the U.S. I still consistently speak with native Brazilians and always am seeking to expand my own vocabulary. To add on, my girlfriend is a native Brazilian, and her father is currently seeking his master's degree (well, the Brazilian equivalent) in Portuguese (like, somebody here in the U.S. receiving their graduate degree in English). Each lesson is catered to the individual's needs and goals. So, as Ice Cube and his crew, NWA once famously stated, during lessons with me, you're going to witness the power of street knowledge.

Classes with me are pretty straight forward. If you put in your part, I'll put in my part, and you're going to improve. Learning a language requires a lot of effort when you aren't immersed in it. Lessons can range from classic, sit down with a couple worksheets to practice a concept, to walking around an area and identifying the names of different items in the scenery, to even getting a chance to practice with native speakers. I'm able to adapt these styles to any level of learner in order to produce maximum results.

About Andrew H.

I teach/tutor a myriad of topics and love doing it. I'm currently attending the Georgia Institute of Technology, studying aerospace engineering and Russian. I love science and math (particularly when it has to do with space stuff). I'm super outgoing and a very laid back, chill person all at the same time (being like this has produced quite the stories).

Working with others and helping them succeed has been something I've loved to do for a while now. While I was in high school, I was a coach for one of the local swim teams and had a blast getting to teach people how to swim and such, and the best part was getting to connect with those kids and seeing them succeed during the swim meets.

Once I graduated, I had the privilege to serve as a full time volunteer in Brazil for a couple years, where my sole focus, every day, was to help others to improve the quality of their life. In doing so, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet new people everyday and see people's lives drastically improve. Another cool part of this experience was that I got to teach English as a second language to people who'd never spoken it before. They loved it, and in the time that I did teach it, students went from speaking no English to being able to form basic sentences and have simple conversations.

Now in college, I've strived to continue this pattern with the little free time that I get during the week and on the weekends due to my classes. Throughout all of this, I've discovered how easy it is for me to connect with people and how much fun it can be.

What I bring to the lessons:
I always ensure to provide the highest quality lessons and ensure that the student easily understands the materials. I'll provide materials that I know will assist the student to master the concepts.

My expectations:
Learning requires the student to put in effort. Any assignments I give, I will expect them to be completed. I understand that sometimes one of "those weeks" comes around where life hits us in the face, but it's not every week.

Your expectations:
You've come to me obviously to learn something new, and I intend to go above and beyond those expectations.

I wrote 5 star review (would give more if could) But showing as 4 stars... not sure why. So writing another one! But I can't say enough great things about Andrew. After 1 tutoring session my son had so many "ah ha" moments. I am so thankful and full of joy. My son is actually "getting it" and may even see how math could be fun...lol.

Andrew was amazing with my 15 yr old son. I am full of joy! My son had so many 'ah ha' moments and actually starting to see math (trig) can be fun. Andrew is an amazing tutor and my son felt so comfortable working with him. I am so thankful and will definitely continue tutoring lessons. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Andrew is extremely knowledgeable in Brazilian Portuguese. he has a unique ability to make the most complicated part of learning a new language extremely simple. Very dedicated to making sure that you understand every step of the way. Andrew was essential and me learning Portuguese to the level that I have learned it to this point. I could not have done it without you thanks Andrew.
