Jamie's Portuguese is excellent. She has mastered the language grammatically and has helped me substantially with my Portuguese academic writing. In addition to her grasp on academic and professional Portuguese, Jamie's conversational abilities are equally as impressive. She sounds like a native and is able to speak fluently in both colloquial settings and formal environments. This makes sense since she has lived in Brazil for a number of years and studied there. I highly recommend her!

When we hired Jamie we were looking for someone special who could take on both our 6 year old and 8 year old at the same time. She enthusiastically accepted the challenge and has since lesson 1, successfully encouraged their confidence and ambition to learn a new language. She’s made it fun and not intimidating. I trust her and I’m grateful for her. I would highly recommend her.
