- Do you have a personal message for students?
When we learn a foreign language we do not just learn how to put words together to make a sentence and say something meaningful; we learn the way people talk, the way people live and the way people think. Learning a language opens the horizons of a person. It is a great asset not only in a career scenario but also on one's personal life.

Perfect! very much appreciating Solange helping me with my Portuguese - all in Portuguese, which is great, and following my requests really helpfully.
- Solange's response : Catherine is an advanced student who just needs some guidance in some small problems related to different aspects of the language. It has been a pleasure to work with her and assist her in these issues.

I started working with Solange about 9 months ago and my Portuguese has improved a lot. She is a very experienced and an excellent quality tutor. She has a nice style for teaching the language and she has crafted many of her own resources to complement textbook activities as well as conversation. This allows students to improve their grammar, reading, writing and conversing skills. I would recommend Solange to anyone wishing to learn Brazilian Portuguese while also learning a little about the culture and history of Brazil as well.
Solange is a fantastic Portuguese teacher. We have been studying with her for over a year and our language skills have really improved. She is patient and helpful but also challenges her students in a positive way. I would recommend Solange if you are looking for a teacher who will go at your pace, is flexible, friendly and has a positive attitude.
I contacted Solange through Gumtree to teach me Brazilian Portuguese as my daughter is now living in Brazil and I have visited a few times. She is an excellent and experienced teacher and has created her own course which she uses alongside an official book. Initially I went to her flat but since lockdown we meet on Skype which works very well. She is thorough but also fun and the hour goes quickly. I would certainly recommend Solange as a teacher.
Solange is a fantastic teacher for people of all abilities.
She has been my tutor for 18mths and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Brazilian Portuguese
Solange has been my Portuguese tutor since last year when I started learning the language from zero. She is a very well educated and prepared tutor who not only covers the curriculum in the book but also sends additional exercises and readings, prepared by herself. She is very patient and also funny so it is a motivating and entertaining to take her lessons. Highly recommended
