I have been speaking Portuguese for 10 years. I have been to Brazil three times and currently work at the Embassy of Brazil using my Portuguese everyday.

Depending on subject I can help with advanced Portuguese.

Lisa is a wonderful teacher. She always is on time and comes prepared with new lessons each week. She is very in tune with my level of Spanish and provides materials that I can handle and challenge me to grow. I am very pleased with her tutoring. I would recommend her highly as a teacher for anyone.

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational Portuguese practice ONLY (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

Kenji is a nice guy and speaks very slowly and clearly. My only misgiving was with error correction. I am not sure if he could not hear me well do to the connection, but I got the feeling he was not correcting all my mistakes when I spoke. I also would have preferred a more structured class, but I probably should have told him that in the beginning of our session. Otherwise he was a nice guy and spoke Portuguese very well.

Portuguese is my native language so I can teach you all about its grammar and vocabulary and take you on a journey through the culture and places of different Portuguese speaking countries. You won't regret it!

I learn Brazilian Portuguese while living in Brazil for several years. I have the personal experience of the learning the language and culture and I would be happy to teach my students both the grammatical and cultural aspects of the Portuguese language. I love teaching and my classes are always dynamic and interactive to help the student develop a sense of independence and self reliance.

My first lesson was a lot of fun and I learned a lot! She spent the first few minutes talking about why I want to learn Spanish and what my goals are. Then she started the first lesson. I am really excited and look forward to the next class!

I am a native speaker, I will be able to teach my students pronunciation , grammar, and conversation. I will tenaciously but patiently help them master the language and all the nuances that make Brazilian Portuguese such a unique language.

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.

My daughter had Drew as her first teacher for the 2015-2016 school year. He was excellent at explaining concepts and techniques to her as she began to learn the flute. He helped her to have fun as she learned. He is patient, knowledgeable, positive, and communicates concepts and expectations well. We would have loved to have him stay in the area and continue as her teacher.

I had the privilege of having Drew as my private flute teacher for the 2015-2016 school year, and I would have loved to remain his student if he hadn't moved. He's incredibly patient, thoughtful, and hardworking, and he helped me correct problems that previous teachers never even noticed. I improved in so many areas in a short period of time, including overall tone, physical technique, performance psychology, practice habits, and applying musicality to my performance. Easily the best teacher I've ever had.
