Oi! Hi! Ciao! My name is José. I lived in Brazil most of my life, in the city of Sao Paulo, and now, after a period in London, I'm living in Turin, Italy. I'm eager to help you learn Portuguese, whether it is for travelling, to speak the language of your loved one, for working or just for fun, no matter what is your level.
From day one, my lessons will be tailored to your goals and interests, to make them engaging and fun and to help you achieve fluency fastly.
I always include bits of culture in our interactions and draw parallels between your knowledge and the culture around the language you are learning, to make the experience richer and to make you feel closer to the native speakers. That is essential!
I also have professional experience in several areas, from hospitality to business consulting, which gave me a lot of flexibility with the language and I will use it to help you improve your vocabulary.
Apart from being a language enthusiast, I am really into music, cooking, and travel. I play the guitar (mainly blues, rock, and bossa nova), I love to cook Brazilian-style barbecue and unknown Italian dishes, and the last places I've been to were Southeast Asian countries on a 5 months trip.
Let's schedule a trial lesson!
Até mais! See you soon! A presto!

I've been taking lessons with José for 6 months now and I couldn't be happier with him as a teacher. His lessons are very engaging and interactive and I feel like I'm learning a lot. You can tell he's passionate about his teaching and puts a lot of effort and heart into the material. He's also genuinely a really nice guy and makes the lessons very comfortable. I can recommend him wholeheartedly.

José is a fantastic teacher! His classes are very interactive/engaging and he is well prepared for each class. He is patient and encouraging so I feel that I'm becoming more and more confident in using the language by each class. He is very thorough and explains the grammar in a simple way for you to understand, bringing real-life examples, often tailored to you. He has shown to be very flexible, which I am truly grateful for, because I am a keen learner who always asks a lot of questions. :) I'm really enjoying learning Portuguese with José, because he makes the classes fun with his cheerful personality and at the same time I am learning a lot from him. As he is a native speaker from Brazil, he also teaches interesting things about the Brazilian culture and lifestyle.
