Hi, there! My name is Rita S., I am a native speaker of Portuguese originally from Brazil. I have more than 15 years of experience teaching Portuguese language and culture to professional adults on some of the leading international institutions in the D.C. area, from beginner through advanced proficiency levels.

I am happy to tailor my lessons to meet my students' needs and style. I have a lot of experience as online instructor, using Skype, Webex, and FaceTime to deliver lessons to remote students who are unable to attend classes in person.

I am a great advocate of good pronunciation, no matter what is your native language. And if you are a Spanish speaker, I can help you to overcome the specific challenges that Spanish speakers face when learning Portuguese.

Culture provides the environment in which languages develop, so culture is an essential part of my lessons, including Brazilian music and history.

Let’s talk and see how I can help you to learn Portuguese in a fun, ...

As someone who wasn't able to take Mandarin at my university, it was wonderful to be able to maintain and especially improve my improvisational speaking skills with HaiBo. It's so wonderful to talk about current events and learn relevant vocabulary. I feel that I'm getting more use out of her lessons compared to a traditional class!

HaiBo does a great job pushing me to learn as much as I can, but will take the time to slow down when necessary. She is a great teacher and also very kind and understanding and is willing to work with my schedule. I highly recommend.

I understand how difficult it can be to learn a new language, especially when you have other subjects to worry about. My personal learning experience helped me understand what is important in developing an easy tutoring program and successfully implementing it. My tutoring experience began in 2008. I believe my qualification and many years of Spanish tutoring with students of all ages and levels have rounded my experience as a private tutor.

"I’ve had seven or eight formal French instructors at various points in my life, and I have to say Philippe was by far the best. I worked with him online for several hours a week over a few months to recover forgotten French and push ahead in new areas. He was extremely responsive and flexible, got straight to the heart of what skills I needed to work on, and was a genuine pleasure to have as an instructor.
Let me be the first to say if you’re considering a language instructor, look no further."
