Nowadays most of my students are English speaking adults (which means I explain in English but they are native and non-native English speakers) that moved or plan to move to Portugal (some of my students have a Portuguese partner and want to know Portuguese for that reason). Most of my students are in the level A1/A2. I know how it is to be an expat/emigrant as I have lived in different countries as an adult and now I live in the United Kingdom.
I have a university degree from the University of Lisbon.
I am married to a Spanish/Italian and our children speak Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and English fluently.
I speak Spanish (C2), B1 French and A2 Italian although I can understand Italian quite well).
I first started teaching Portuguese in Ireland when I lived there 13 years ago. I was teaching Portuguese and I worked at an office at the same time. Now I only teach Portuguese.
I also have been teaching Portuguese to my children since they were born (they are 10 and 8 now). 16 years ago I started teaching my husband and he is fluent now.
I joined Superprof as a Portuguese teacher 1 year ago.
I teached my first Portuguese private lesson 13 years ago. I have a university degree from the University of Lisbon.
Perfect! Ana Margarida is an excellent tutor! In just a few lessons, I feel like my Portuguese is already improving.
Because I can already speak a little, our lessons are almost entirely in Portuguese. While this is challenging, Ana Margarida is very patient and responds to the areas where I need the most work.
She's a very talented teacher indeed!
Mark already can speak Portuguese quite well so we have our class in Portuguese and we are practising the areas he needs. He is very enthusiastic and a great student to teach.
Perfect! Ana is super friendly and patient. The lessons are great and well structured.
Kate has a good understanding of the Portuguese pronunciation, she understood the general rules very fast. I think she will be able to have a conversation in Portuguese soon.
Perfect! Thank you so much for the wonderful demo class. The session went really interesting. We could know more about Portugal. My Kids really liked your class. We are looking forward to join your classes soon, our decision regarding the migration to Portugal still pending due to the current situation. We shall proceed with the training once we get the confirmation. It was really a very pleasant session. Thank you.
I had a great lesson with Rajesh's wife and two children and Rajesh's wife told me they really liked the class and my presentations about Portugal. I am looking forward to have more lessons with them, they learnt really fast and they have a great Portuguese pronunciation.
Perfect! Ana is an excellent tutor, she is patient and takes time to explain things.
I am looking forward to more lessons.
Rob is a friendly and clever student. He has a strong interest in Portuguese and I think he will be able to communicate easily with Portuguese speakers soon.
Perfect! A fantastic tutor. Kind, caring, friendly, patient and very intelligent. She is very professional, organized, structured and flexible in her approach to language teaching.
Muito Obrigado Ana Margarida
Connor is highly interested in learning languages and he is highly motivated. He is kind and I think he will be able to be fluent in Portuguese very quickly as he is also a self learner.
Perfect! Ana is a fantastic teacher. She makes the languages (Portuguese & Spanish) easy to understand, is patient and engaging, and teaches very well. Highly recommended !
Anil is an amazing student, I have been teaching him Portuguese and Spanish. It is a real pleasure to teach such an interested student that wants to understand all the details of the languages, including the history of the languages.
Perfect! I love my lessons with Ana Margarida! Each lesson she asks me questions about my life, my day etc. and I find it much easier to learn and pick up Portuguese as we are in conversation. Ana is a fantastic tutor: very kind, friendly and patient.
Katrina is a very motivated student and learns very fast. It is a pleasure to teach her.
Fantastic professional. Kind and friendly
Olá a todos;
Marga is a exceptional teacher the best I have ever met.
Spontaneous and fun I have managed to fulfill one of my dreams to be able to understand and speak Portuguese. One of my favourite languages.
Learning has never been so easy for me .
Muito obligado Marga
As Ana Margarida's husband, I have been certainly the student she had for the longest time. When we met 15 years ago, I didn't speak Portuguese at all, I only understood some words in written text due to the similarity with my native Spanish, and I would struggle to understand anything in a conversation because the accent is very different and the false friends are innumerable.
Now, despite I never lived in Portugal, Portuguese is one of the languages I speak better. I can do everything independently when we are on holidays.
Additionally, we are a multilingual family thanks to her commitment to teach the language to our children, whose level is indistinguishable from any other native, despite the fact they have been in Portugal just on holidays.
In addition, after living for ten years in Spain, and due to her love for detail and precision, I can assure than her level in Spanish, and her knowledge of the Spanish culture is so high (C2) that 90%+ Spaniards wouldn't realise at all she isn't Spanish.
I have been certainly very lucky meeting such a good language teacher. You might think that being her husband I'm partial. But you don't need to believe me, take her free lesson and check yourself if I'm right.
Margarita is a great professional, she is very kind and approachable.
Ana Margarida or Marga as she prefers to be called, is a sweet teacher with a lovely smile and tons of patiente, she is very thorough preparing her classes and doesnt mind repeating things as many times as is necessary.
Definitely recommend Ana! She is incredibly kind and loving and VERY knowledgeable! I am very lucky to know her personally very well and she’s given us lots of invaluable advice on how to raise our children bilingual.
Margarida has been super helpful improving my Portuguese skills. Really collaborative at any time any day. She does speak English and Spanish as well!!!!
She brought confident to me to speak in public.
Thank you Marga!
Margarida is a portuguese native speaker, very knowledgable and friendly. She has a special interests for languages and other topics, such as the environment. She is a great teacher!
Ana Margarida is native in portuguese. We have worked together in many different academic projects and became good friends. I found her to be very motivated, dedicated and encouraging during team work. Besides her competence, she was able to make every project a very enjoyable and positive experience. I recommend her as a portuguese teacher.
She is really good!! I met her when she was in Spain, I love languages and I decided to learn a little portuguese, she was good at explaining and had a lot of patience. 100% recommendable!!
