Reviews (1)

Joana is a wonderful teacher. She is friendly and patient. She will help you work towards your goals at a pace that works for you.
I'm an experienced teacher, with students of different levels/ages. I enjoy the diversity of students and understanding of their different ways of learning and goals and for me, this is the best part of the job - to know an treat each student as a unique person that they are. You'll be encouraged to make music from the very first day. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn pieces of gradual difficulty. We make use of progressive tuition methods and you'll learn a solid technique by playing scales, bowing and fingering exercises and easy tunes to begin with. Repertoire includes etudes, playful and challenging concert pieces and from the very beginning duos to play with the teacher.

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.

Learn Brazilian Portuguese with a native speaker
This Brazilian Portuguese course is suitable for those who already speak a little bit and who want to practice and deepen themselves more, as well as for those who still want to take the first steps. With me you will find enough encouragement and security to expand your boundaries and understand, write and speak Portuguese more. My approach is organically structured with an eye to relevant themes for the student and self-knowledge. I studied International Politics and have interests related to ecology and spirituality. I live in the beautiful city of Recife with two cats and am also a flower essence therapist.

It is always a pleasure to help someone and be able to support someone's dream. Teaching is not only a job for me, it is a pleasure.

Ines
European Portuguese classes (all levels from a1 to c1)
Hi! My name is Inês, I was born and raised in Portugal, and I have been teaching Portuguese online for two years. I study medicine at an international university where all my classes are in English. I also have an English certificate - Cambridge English advanced - level c1 in CEFR. This allows me to communicate well with my students and have more tools for how to better teach a new language. I'm passionate about travel, different cultures and languages, sports and art! Even though I don't have any Portuguese language courses or education, I'm very interested in Portuguese and how to teach it. My mother is also a teacher, which helps me to get different resources and techniques to teach. My classes are entirely taught online. The program is very flexible depending on the student. However, I teach mainly with books (I can send pdf), videos, PowerPoints and oral discussions. It's very important for me to understand which learning strategies work best for the person in front of me and then adjust the lessons accordingly.
