Trusted teacher: The real Portuguese adventure! Advantages of learning a new language: Learning a new language is fun. But what I’m (and you should be) after is not bilingualism but instead biculturalism. We think by aid of words. Therefore language shapes thought. In part this is because working in a second language slows down the thinking. No wonder people feel different when speaking a second language. And no wonder they feel looser, more spontaneous, perhaps more assertive or funnier or blunter. Studies show that being able to speak another language is generally linked to a more flexible brain, developing the brain’s ability to plan and prioritize. Also it betters our defenses against dementia in old age. Advantages of learning Portuguese: • 250 million native speakers worldwide • 5th most common language in the world • It has been an official language since 1297 • It’s usage is spread over 4 continents (Europe, South America, Africa, Asia) Now business, The pace, duration, frequency and schedule of the classes is totally up to the student to decide. The best case scenario is 1-2x per week depending on both parties availability. Focus on diverse subjects is possible, for example, grammar, diction, reading comprehension, written production, conversational skills. In case the student has no specific requests, together we will follow the guidelines of a trusted book (that I myself bring to the class and the student doesn’t need to acquire). The classes will rely also on bilingual children’s books and audio media. This double edged approach allows for fun learning ways and cultural assimilation. In every class the student will be directly influenced by worldwide Portuguese culture ( music, history, geography). Periodically we will evaluate how the classes are evolving so as to rapidly and effectively shift focus to where it is needed.

Portuguese for people who want to learn this beautiful language. Brazil is becoming #1 destination for nature tourism, learn the language and enjoy your trip! I will help you speak Portuguese by having natural progressive conversations with you. Studying itself will be rewarding, learning fast will be the great plus!
Trusted teacher: In recent years I have pursued studies in economics, finance, and mathematics, therefore due to the combined skills developed on these subjects, I have a holistic view, down to a more technical one about financial and economic problems. I have a good ability to teach and understand students’ difficulties in a certain topic, as I have had some experience in private tutoring students on High school mathematics (mainly differential calculus and trigonometry). I believe that I am quick to learn new material since I have easily learnt advanced courses in mathematics coming from an economics background, so I think that my abstract reasoning skills, developed mainly during the last years, have given the ability to deeply learn any material, which I think it is key for anyone that wants to get involved with any form of teaching. I can teach mathematics up to Calculus, English and Portuguese language, and undergraduate courses in Economics and Finance.
