Portuguese Lessons

Vanessa has been a great Portuguese teacher. She is always promptly on time and very prepared for each lesson. She’s also great at catering the lessons to exactly what I need and makes good use of screen sharing and materials to make online lessons just as convenient as in person. A true professional.

Vanessa is teaching Portuguese to our son. He is 9 yrs old and speaks Portuguese but wants to learn how to read and write. She is patient, caring and a great teacher. We would recommend her.

Portuguese Lessons

Vanessa has been giving my kids (11 and 14) Portuguese lessons for the past two months. She is an excellent teacher: professional, well prepared and very good at evaluating each child and tailoring lessons accordingly. We found her on Thumbtack and reached out, and she responded promptly and was flexible in finding times that worked for us. Vanessa has been super punctual for every lesson. Our kids love lessons with her and she is very knowledgeable about bilingualism. We’re looking forward to keeping up our kids’ weekly lessons with Vanessa, and highly recommend her!
