Fernando really does make learning Portuguese fun! Using engaging teaching styles we cover a mix of reading, writing, listening comprehension and speaking in each session, which is improving my proficiency and confidence immensely. He is also happy to tailor classes to address any specific areas I want to focus on.  If you're thinking of learning Brazilian Portuguese I can't recommend him enough!

Matthew Maccabe

Fernando is an excellent teacher, both of practical, day-to-day conversational Portuguese and of more technical grammatical or literary aspects of the language. I unreservedly recommend him for any level of students.

Russell Aldersson

I studied Brazilian Portuguese with Fernando as my tutor for just over a year. Lessons were always structured and gave focus to reading, writing, conversation and form/structure. If I had specific questions or areas that I wanted to focus on, he was happy to accommodate that. I can't recommend him highly enough!

My name is Fernando and I'm a Brazilian Portuguese Teacher, Translator & Interpreter based in London, UK. I was born in Porto Alegre, the capital of the Brazil's Rio Grande do Sul State. After I graduated from university, I visited London as a tourist and liked it so much that I moved back to train to be a teacher, translator and interpreter. In my 20+ years of experience I have helped many people on their journey to learn Brazilian Portuguese. Teaching is my passion and I am proud to have taught Brazilian Portuguese to staff of British Airways, BBC, Sothebyโ€™s, Fine Line Film Distribution, among many others.
