WHAT MY STUDENTS SAY

Virginia makes learning Portuguese a very enjoyable experience. The way she teaches is sensitive to my abilities and my style of learning. She explains each topic in several ways and helps me to understand the proper use of grammar in every day conversation.”

Virginia Langhammer - Director and Teacher

Teaching Portuguese as a second language has become my passion since I moved to NYC in 2013.


Prior to opening my school in 2018, I taught at the top language schools in New York, where I worked with students from all over the world, helping them with their personal and professional goals.

I've been always passionate about languages. I speak Portuguese, English, French, and Spanish. My knowledge of foreign language learning gives me the best tools to help my students in their learning journey.

Now, I’m happy to introduce you to my team. In addition to years of experience as Portuguese teachers, they have also been trained by me to be in tune with Speaking Brazilian School style and standards.

 

I'm sure you'll learn a lot from them!

Your teacher,

Virginia

Venus Santos - Teacher

Hello! I'm Venus. Yes, this is my real name. :) 

 

I'm Brazilian, from São Paulo, but I’ve lived for 3 years in Buenos Aires, Argentine, and in 2016, I moved to Lisbon, Portugal. 

 

I've been teaching Portuguese as a second language since 1991. It's a great pleasure for me to help others learn my mother language and culture.

 

I have a lot of experience teaching Portuguese to Spanish speakers during the time I lived in Argentine, but I’ve also worked with students from many other countries.

 

I can’t wait to meet you and help you in your exciting journey of learning Portuguese!

Gleice Vakhraneva - Teacher

Olá pessoal, meu nome é Gleice. I was born in a mountain town in the state of Rio de Janeiro. But I consider myself a "mineira de coração" since I lived in Ouro Preto, MG for about 7 years. 

 

In 2007 and moved to NY in search of an adventure and now this is the place I call home. I live in Westchester with my 7-year-old daughter and my husband. Professionally, I’ve been teaching Portuguese as a second language for about 11 years now. I also have a Master's degree in TESOL and have been teaching English as a second language for about 18 years. 

 

I believe the best part of teaching a language is being able to share our cultures and broaden our views about the world.  Espero te conhecer em breve!

Things you need to know

Who should take private classes?


One-on-one classes are the best option for those who want a personalized class or have specific learning goals.




How does the class work?


It's simple: you'll meet your teacher via Zoom. All you need is a computer or tablet and a good Internet connection.




What material are we going to use?


The teacher will prepare personalized lessons based on your level and learning objectives. Basic material is included. If necessary, we'll recommend extra material.




What is the schedule?


Teachers are available Monday-Sunday from 6 am - 9 pm (New York time). Once you sign up, you'll be able to schedule your lessons at your convenience via our website.

Lessons are 55-60 minutes in length. We recommend starting with a package of 10 lessons and taking 1 or 2 lessons per week.




Support offered via Whatsapp and email.


Private classes include support via WhatsApp and email 7 days a week. Anytime you have a question or need to know how to say something in Portuguese, or how to pronounce a word, just send us a message or email and we'll be glad to help you.




30-day Money-back Guarantee


You realized that private classes are not for you? No problem! All you have to do is send us an email within 30 days and we'll send you a refund. A full refund will be issued if requested before your first class. After the first class, the refund will be issued only for the classes that were not yet taken. For example: If you enroll for the 10-hour package and ask for a refund before your first class, you'll receive a full refund. If you enroll for the 10-hour package and ask for a refund after your third class, you'll receive a refund for the remaining 7 classes.




What is cancellation policy?


You may reschedule or cancel your class up to 24 hours prior to class. If you cancel a class less than 24 hours in advance, you'll be charged for a 1-hour class.
