Aira is awesome. Classes and materials are well organized and super easy to review and study. We spend about half of the class conversing and the other half learning new materials. She quizzes me on previous lessons and she makes sure I stay on top of things. I really look forward to each class and enjoy learning Portuguese because of her.

I have been with this program for over a year now while both in Brazil and back in the US. The teacher caters the class to your needs and interest. The beginning was much more grammar heavy and that has since changed to incorporate other topics of interest to me such as culture and current events. I highly recommend this program for anyone from beginners to more advanced Portuguese speakers. My Portuguese has improved exponentially since I began the program.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always offer a free trial class in order to evaluate my students level and needs and I think it is the best way to find out how is my classes and my methodology. The news students just win having a trial class because at least they can learn a little bit Portuguese. I always recommend new students to have trial classes with different teachers, face-to-face or via Skype. And it is good for me, because I have the opportunity to show my work and because they always come back to have Portuguese classes with me. It is a win win.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a Portuguese teacher for foreigners since 2000. I have studied Portuguese in a Brazilian University and I have a Master degree in Linguistics. I have wrote some books for Portuguese lessons and I am an expert trainer for new Portuguese teachers. Some people think that any Brazilian can teach Portuguese and it is not true. They need to specialize themselves in order to be a good Portuguese tutor for foreigner and I train them, I teach them how to teach foreigners a new language. Sometimes students hire cheap and inexperienced teacher and just waste time and money because they don't learn. I have been doing this all my life and Iam really good. All my students really enjoy the classes and learn.
