Portuguese Lessons $30.00
I am offering Portuguese tuition to learners of all levels, beginning, intermediate or advanced. I graduated from U.F.R.J (University of Rio de Janeiro) in Portuguese Literature and Linguistics and have taught Portuguese as a second language for the past 15 years in the US, the UK, and in Brazil.
I tutored predominantly one-on-one classes for private clients from large corporations and banks, who intended to do business in or relocate to Brazil. I have also taught groups in "situ", such as at the BBC, JP Morgan, USB Bank, BAT (British America Tobacco) offices in London.
I organize tutorials at your home or office, according to your needs. I can provide textbooks and handouts, or work with your other studying materials. Your first lesson is free of charge: I will begin by assessing your reading/writing and listening/oral skills, and then devise a plan for your studying success within the timeframe you designate.
For example, if your goal is to reach a level of fluency in Portuguese so that you would be ready to travel independently in Brazil or Portugal, or if your hope is to hold your own in business meetings in any of these countries, I will map out a realistic studying schedule and milestones in order to realize this plan. My aim is to make your confident in your ability to communicate naturally and accurately, and always to enjoy the process!
I also offer simultaneous interpreting and translation services.
I look forward to discussing your interest in learning or improving your Portuguese.
My rates: $30.00 per hour lesson (handouts, audio, podcast, articles and material included)
Phone calls preferred, thank you.
