Hear from Our Students

“Cláudia always came prepared and tailored the lesson to specific things I wanted to work on. She clearly put a lot of time and thought into preparing the lessons. In my many years of teaching and studying, I would say Cláudia is one of the top teachers I’ve ever encountered. She really knows how to connect with students and how to teach a foreign language, which is not easy to do. Cláudia has a true love of the language, loves teaching, and will go more than the extra mile for her students. Whoever studies with her is lucky because she gives her all to help her students’ language skills improve.”

- Paul, Maryland, USA

“Cláudia is simply the most amazing teacher. She is professional, well-prepared, her knowledge of the language is obvious, and she is able to explain things simply and effectively. The classes are interesting, informative, and fun. Cláudia really cares, and she goes above and beyond to help her students. She has really helped my grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and perhaps most importantly, my self-confidence when speaking Portuguese. I highly recommend Cláudia’s classes.”

- Clare, England

“Cláudia is an excellent teacher, and these are the best language lessons I have ever had. I need to speak Portuguese because of my professional life. Before Cláudia, I had some free trial lessons with other teachers, and I could see that she was the best. Her qualifications and experience really make a difference. I was a total beginner; I couldn’t say a word in Portuguese! I can have a fluent conversation now thanks to her experience, methodology, and structured lessons. She always prepares my lessons according to my needs and the e-learning platform also helps me a lot.”

- Klaus, Germany

“I truly enjoyed my Portuguese classes with Cláudia as they were really adapted to my needs, expectations, and learning possibilities. I managed to systematize my knowledge, greatly improve my oral expression, and understand quite well some difficult parts of Portuguese grammar. Cláudia also is able to explain quite difficult things with easy language and always gives many examples. That helps! And she is very patient when needing to explain something again and again. I think Cláudia views teaching more as a challenge than as a job. For me, it was a very good experience.”

- Anna, Poland

“Cláudia starts with the basics and builds on that. She’s very cultural and knows everything about the language and the culture. She and I immediately clicked and I felt very comfortable with her. She takes the time to build a relationship with you.”

- Linda, Portugal

“Cláudia made learning fun, she incorporated the culture into her teaching, she tailored the class to our needs, and she encouraged us to love learning the language and the culture.”

- Genoveva, Australia
