DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

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.
As a recent recipient of a Master's Degree in Flute Performance from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music, Drew Powell is a promising young flutist and highly sought after flute teacher. For 15 years, he has participated in numerous music competitions, festivals, and performance opportunities, both as a soloist and part of ensembles, and actively continues to do so. He is an advocate of the arts and passionate about spreading the gift of music, which has lead him to teach over 30 students (and counting!) in just the past 3 years.
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.
**My Vision*** 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.
***My Requirements*** 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.
Drew is always polite, patient, and professional. I would definitely recommend his lessons to anyone wanting to learn to play the flute. I am looking forward to our future lessons.

In the few months that I've had flute lessons with Drew, I've grown so much. As a beginner in flute, I was completely scared and overwhelmed with taking band for the first time. Knowing I needed lessons, I'm so glad that I was paired with Drew. On my first lesson, Drew asked me what my goals were and I told him that it was to just simply read the notes on the page. That's all I expected to learn from him, but he taught me so much more! Drew taught me about musical expression, tone and all the little details behind flute playing. His teachings challenged and motivated me. My peers and band teacher have noticed my improvement and progress. Thanks to Drew, I can now play with confidence and poise. -Emma

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’m Brazilian so I can teach you how to speak like a native. Personalized lessons according to students goals.

“Carmen’s lessons really make the Portuguese language come alive! She identifies her students motivations to learn the language and designs lessons that targets vocabulary and expressions that are really useful to rapidly advance proficiency.”
Aaron Spencer, USA, (United Nations & Rockefeller Foundation)

Harald Gunia, Germany, (Engineer)
I am an experienced bilingual professional teacher and communicator. I am a native of Brazil with a wide breadth of experience and passion for the Brazilian and American cultures and their languages (Portuguese-English).
The experience of living in other countries has given me great cultural flexibility and has made me a more open-minded person.
My work consists of teaching, guiding and coaching students from around the globe with Brazilian Portuguese. I help them in all aspects of breaking the language barriers. I work with all language skills and methods, yet my main specialty is making students speak and communicate well in Portuguese. I work directly on their speech and its construction through the Communicative Approach along with modern technologies. I customize my students experience according to their main goals and I have man
As always an amazing lesson. I really appreciate how the homework and lessons are tailored to both my personal interests as well as my Portuguese goals, and I can tell I am improving rapidly under her mentorship. Thank you!

Our lessons have become one of the things I look forward to every week. Carmen is amazing and if you want to learn Portuguese you won't find anyone better!

One of the amazing things about Professora Carmen is that during our lessons I will often times ask a question about something I am stuck on or curious about, and she will flawlessly use my question as a teaching moment. As an example, I mentioned how in a song I heard a phrase that didn't make sense to me. 15 minutes later we had use that phrase to help me learn more about Brazilian culture, grammar, and different meanings to similar words. Honestly one of the best teachers I have ever had in my 16+ years of schooling!
*Music* 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.
*Computer Skills* 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.
"Wow. Marcia is an amazing teacher. Energetic, endearing, genuine & articulate to name only a few. I'm so excited to be her student."
"Great first lesson. Looking forward to the next one. Marcia was great."
"Very good class. Marcia, is very professional, she follow up and is willing to help me in my learning process. D. Mejia"
"Cloe could not be happier with Marcia's teaching style and warmth. She is fantastic and focused - teaching exactly what Cloe needs at her pace. Thanks f
or your influence on Cloe's life and learning!"
"Marcia is very personable and knowledegable, and in my first lesson, I really felt like she would cater the class to my needs, which was my main concern.
I really feel I will improve greatly working with her."
"If you are looking for an AMAZING, fun, smart, intuitive, genuine, kind, experienced teacher... Marcia is the one for you! She is so much more to me than
a weekly lesson... she's also my friend. :)"
"Marcia is a great choice if you are serious about learning Portuguese and having fun in the process. She tailors to her student needs, creates fun activit
ies, and gives you plenty of speaking practice. I have studied other languages in the past without actually feeling I was learning the language. Studying with Marcia allowed me to quickly progress and learn. Today, I still do practice lessons, watch videos in Brazilian Portuguese, and try to listen to the radio in Portuguese as much as possible because my lessons with Marcia keep me motivated to keep learning. She is a great instructor!"
"Márcia is a clear expert when it comes to Portuguese culture and language. I have been a student of Marcia for a few months and I honestly look forward to
our classes every time. She is very funny, comfortable, and familiar. Her classes are a mixture of academics and fun! She is very flexible and a lovely person to speak with-- I highly recommend."
"After a ~6 months of Portuguese classes in university, I took a year of lessons with Márcia. I was preparing for a post-graduate study abroad program, so
was looking to maintain and improve my Portuguese relatively intensively. Working with Márcia was an absolute delight - she was always punctual, willing to work with my schedule, and adopted the textbooks I was used to. Depending on my schedule, she was happy to assign me homework or come to class prepared with activities if I didn't have time outside of class to study that week. Our lessons were mostly conversations, with Marcia actively pointing out new vocabulary words, grammar usage points, or tidbits of Brazilian culture throughout. Unlike my university classes, Marcia taught me Portuguese for professional AND casual situations. She even invested time in my learning outside of my lesson by reviewing and providing thorough feedback on my assignments before we even got to the lesson.
I would highly recommend taking lessons with Márcia no matter your level - she's patient, funny, energetic, and professional, not to mention a great teacher. Muito muito obrigada, Márcia. Foi um prazer! :)"
