I started Portugueselessons with Natalia three weeks ago and it has been a great experience. She is very responsive and always on time. I tried many different instructors but landed back with her for multiple reasons. She’s been great at molding the classes to my needs and overall is a very pleasant person to work with. Now that we’ve had more lessons we find ourselves laughing at various things and the time seems to fly by. She wrote the book, “Tudo Bem? Vamos Aprender Portuguese.” I definitively recommend buying it but if not then she will send you the lessons. With other instructors we had issues with the technology but using FaceTime with Natalia has worked great. Also, my schedule varies so it works well with her flexible schedule. However, she does offer set days and times if that is your thing. Most importantly she has a genuine passion for making sure that I succeed. Along with the lessons, there are assignments to do on your own and she will send extra material as well. She’s also helped me find different ways to access programs in Portuguese on Netflix and Globo. Also, you’ll see that there are many instructors that are more expensive and less expensive. I tried several of them and feel that Natalia is by far the best value. She’s already increased my confidence. At the same time it’s going to be a long but enjoyable ride to get where I need to be.
Private Tutoring Services - Natália H.
I have taken three lessons with Patricia and I am hooked. She is patient, creative, and encouraging. Learning a new language is hard and Patricia skillfully navigates between the stubborn side of me that is resisting and the optimistic side of me that knows if I persist I will eventually "get this." Patricia's scheduling is flexible; she has always been on time (even early waiting for me to sign in on Skype), and sends homework with plenty of lead-time so that I can prepare for each lesson. I cannot write enough about what a great teacher she has been so far. I have no doubts that with her help and persistence I will eventually be able to at least carry a simple conversation in Brazilian Portuguese.
