About Me

I am a Brazilian, from Santos (São Paulo), who is passionate about Portuguese language. Since a child, Portuguese was my favorite subject at school. I always did very well with grammar and corrected people's mistakes in my daily life.

My interest for languages expanded and currently I speak also English, German, Spanish and Dutch. This means that I can teach you Portuguese in any of these languages! :D

As a teacher, I aim to make my classes smooth, interesting and fun! I think it's very important to share with students something from my culture, such as musics, novelas (soap operas), festivities and food. I want to teach students with real life examples and vocabulary, instead of using cases that are only in the books. There is so much of Brazilian culture to be explored and this makes the language learning process much easier!

I am very flexible, so I can adapt my class to the needs of each student. If you want to do business with someone from Brazil, I am the right person to assist you! I am graduated in International Relations with focus in Business, so this gives me in depth knowledge in this field! If you are going for holidays in Brazil and you want to be able to dive more in the culture, I can also prepare classes for you!! In this way you can dance samba, while singing the lyrics!

I am very patient, so I can explain you something you didn't understand as many times as necessary. I have great communication skills, what is definetely helpful. Also, I am very enthusiastic, so I am going to do my best to keep you motivated and focused!!

Since I've learned several languages, I can share my tricks with you of how to become fluent in a new language! Finally, in Portuguese there are several words and expressions that really loose their meanings when translated. So by learning Portuguese, you really expand your horizons!

Experience / Qualifications

2018 - Present: I have been for more than 3 years teaching Portuguese via Apprentus. I had/ have several students, all with different profiles (ages, interests and Portuguese level). From people who want to learn the basics in order to travel to Brazil to fluent speakers who want to perfect their skills. So far, I have been giving classes in Portuguese, English and Dutch, as requested by the student. Currently, I am also teaching Dutch to a Portuguese child. There are no boundaries when teaching a language! I particularly think it helps a lot that I often can teach students in their motherlanguage.

2016: I taught voluntarily Portuguese to a Syrian refugee at a Daycare for less privileged children in São Paulo. The girl was 4 years old and lived in Brazil for 6 months, but couldn't speak Portuguese. The teaching process was focused on visuals, as she couldn't write or read. It was an extremely challenging and pleasurable experience. After a few months of classes, she could already interact with other children and express herself much better.

2015: I lived in India for 8 months, where I taught Portuguese to a group of colleagues at the company I worked (Financial Technologies). The company was expanding their business in Brazil, so by learning Portuguese the employees could get more familiar with the Brazilian market. This course was business oriented and also included advices for negotiating with Brazilians.

Portuguese for English Speakers - Brave the lusophone world!
With 270M+ speakers around the world, Portuguese is the last of the Romance Languages (the last "child" of Latin) and the third most spoken in the West, just behind Spanish and English. The laguage is spoken mainly in Portugal (its homeland) and Brazil (most native speakers); knowing how to speak Portuguese will open ways into the best of Lusitan and Brazilian cultures, with a lot of legends and world history to discover! Also, Portuguese is, perhaps, the most sentimental language in the world: you will have at your disposal a myriad of words to express yourself fully and deeply, in a way you never realised it was possible. Ready to discover a whole new world?!

Marcelo
Learn Portuguese in 10 weeks - private or group lessons -- professional with teaching degree - private and group lessons - lessen per Skype
Oi Tudo bem? Mijn naam is Marcelo en ik kom uit São Paulo. Ik geef Portugees en Braziliaans Portugees in Den Haag, Rotterdam Centrum en in Amsterdam. Gelukkig kan ik mijn universitaire studies en 20 jaar praktische leservaring zodanig combineren dat de lessen goed onderbouwd en stimulerend zijn. Ik heb in Brazilië en Portugal gewoond en gestudeerd, dus ben een ‘native speaker, met veel kennis van de bijbehorende cultuur. Door speling of voorziening van het lot, ben ik tweetalig. Jarenlang heb ik ook business trainingen gegeven aan twee zeer bekende taalscholen, dus ik weet hoe ik in korte tijd veel kennis kan overdragen. Dat voel je als cursist al na een paar lessen. Zakelijk Portugees of met spoed leren (binnen 10 werkdagen) is ook mogelijk. Ik heb een KvK en BTW nummer. Ik heb veel ervaring met geven van lessen per Skype of Whereby (Whereby is professioneler en Europees), al voor de crisis omdat ik ook cursisten in andere landen les geef. Bij virtuele lessen ontvangt u een transcript van de les per email, na afloop van de les. Lessen bij mij thuis (Molenlaan kwartier Rotterdam) zijn ook mogelijk met 1,8 meter afstand en goede circulatie. Gratis parkeren. Mijn lessen zijn zeer gestructureerd en stap voor stap. Daarnaast leg ik altijd het 'waarom' uit van een grammaticaal onderwerp, dat een link creëert die ook beter werkt voor het geheugen en de les interessanter maakt. Omdat ik zo resultaatgericht ben, probeer ik trainees met een zachte hand de trap naar de volle spreekvaardigheid op te helpen en mijn taak is om de lessen zo leerzaam en aantrekkelijk mogelijk te maken. Abraços (vriendelijke groeten) Marcelo.

Portuguese lessons for everyone (beginners, intermediate and advanced) at home or online
Would you like to learn a new skill? You've come to the right place. I am Portuguese and I am fluent in this fantastic language. During my Portuguese lessons you will not only learn the language, but I will also enrich your knowledge about Portuguese culture: Portuguese customs and superstitions for example. I use a teaching method that covers spelling, vocabulary and pronunciation of the words. The latter is often missing in other courses and tutoring. Together we will ensure that you have a good command of the Portuguese language!

Zé Eduardo
Portuguese, Spanish and Italian classes tailor-made for your needs
Hello there, My name is Zé and I'm here to teach you my native language! I am a polyglot who speaks four languages (currently learning my fifth one, Japanese), so I know the struggles of learning a new language from scratch. I can adapt our lessons to be more structured or more flexible depending on your desires and needs. Lessons can be general or focused on specific topics, depending on the client. I am available in the center of Amsterdam, starting on the 2nd of October. Looking forward to meet you!

Portuguese language and culture lessons with a native speaker
The wonderful 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 Language and Brazilian Culture: Learn with fun!
Do you want to speak Portuguese and get closer to the Brazilian culture in a fun and dynamic way? Well, I am a Brazilian who can show you our History, our art, customs and the great diversity of Brazilian Portuguese accents, as if you were on a virtual trip to Brazil. I have been teaching my language to people of different levels and objectives for more than two years, which gave me great experience in adapting my classes according to the needs of each student. Thus, in addition to traditional grammar, I use movies, songs, literature and other resources according to the profile of each student. In Brazil, I worked in schools and science museums, where I gained practice teaching children, youth, and adults. I also worked writing and reviewing articles for magazines, so I have great experience with the written Portuguese language. I offer online classes via webcam or face-to-face (in Granada, Spain) so that the student can choose the way that suits him best.
