PORTUGUESE Lessons via SKYPE- FREE Trial (Austin)


Hi! Are you too busy to leave work for classes? How about Skype classes from the comfort of your home or convenience of your office?

My name is Rita and I'm from Rio de Janeiro. I have been teaching Portuguese for over 20 years. I have a degree in Portuguese and English Languages from a Brazilian University and also a New School University Teaching degree. In Brazil, I used to teach Americans in Multinational Companies such as Coca-Cola, Shell, Texaco, SmithKline Beecham, etc. Before I moved to Austin,TX, my clients in NY included Chicago Investment Group, The Financial Times, The Council on Foreign Relations, Sony Music Entertainment, West LB Investment, and general interest students.

I'm also a Portuguese Studio Coach for Rosetta Stone.

"I've been studying Portuguese for about 4 years. In that time, I have worked with 4 different teachers. Simply said, Rita is simply the best. Rather than impose a pre-set program, she evaluated what I knew, but more importantly, how I wanted to use my Portuguese. She then created an individual program of lessons, conversation and even videos that helped me achieve great progress. She is always prepared with new lessons and she's always on time for my class. Finally, I must add that Rita is passionate about language and has a terrific sense of humor that makes learning lots of fun. As I said before, Rita is the best!"

" I began studying Portuguese with Rita 11 months ago, and have learned an amazing amount since then. She conducts her classes with the utmost professionalism. She's well prepared, tailors the lessons to each individual student and encourages feedback. True to her nature, she's also an incredibly encouraging and supportive teacher. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning in a fun, focused environment."
