I believe the best way to learn a language is to experience the culture. So alongside vocabulary and grammar, I like to bring in curiosities, facts and expressions that are typically Brazilian. I think learning languages is more fun when it feels like you are talking to a friend instead of a strict professor. Moreover, I like to mold the methodology to the student's objectives and preferences.
I am Brazilian, so Portuguese is my native language. I have lived abroad through most of my adult life and have helped many friends who wanted to improve their Portuguese skills along the way.
My academic background is in communications studies.
Rates may vary depending on distance to travel as well as methodology/objectives set by the student (to be discussed on the first lesson).
Cancellation Policy: Classes can be re-scheduled if the tutor is notified at least 48 hours in advance.
Perfect! Louise is a fantastic tutor! I had 6 lessons where she helped me develop my conversational Portuguese, whilst also improving my pronunciation. We would talk in Portuguese throughout each session with Louise helpfully starting the dialogue to help me zone in.. then asking questions to encourage me to speak. Topics were crafted to suit real life events and experiences and Louise had creative ideas on how I could increase my vocabulary on these themes, including videos and music, which I’ll continue to use in future! Highly recommended!
Laurie was a great student! Wish you the best of luck in the future :)
Perfect! I was looking to revive my Portuguese conversation which I had not used for over fifteen years. Louise quickly tailored a very practical programme for my needs focused on conversation in different settings. She was easy to talk to with a good mix of colloquial and formal instruction and I thoroughly enjoyed our meetings. I would go back to her if I find occasion to try to improve my Portuguese towards fluency. I also note that she is extremely well qualified to teach beginners as well.
Steven just needed a little encouragement to revive his Portuguese for a big event. I hope everything went well, Steve :)
