Olá todo mundo!! My name is Murillo, from Goiânia (a city located in the very heart of Brazil) so you can expect a lot of caring and love during the sessions :P I'm a very open-minded and extrovert person and looking forward to meeting you and helping you with your portuguese learning journey! Certified to teach portuguese but to be honest, that means nothing! And here you go a tip, never take as the main priority, when choosing a tutor or a teacher, their certificates. As a vivid language learner myself, I will work with you the way I expect my teachers to work with me! I am also very understanding of the modernity when it comes to learning languages nowadays so you can expect that!

There are many friendly Brazilian teachers who will give you great conversational classes so you can practice your intermediate level: you are going to learn things you may or may not forget, but it will be turning in circles, remaining in your comfort zone, repeating what you know, including the deeply entrenched habit-forming mistakes. Then there is Murillo: he is going to make you break through your comfort zone of repetition. You will discover new subject matters, new colloquial expressions and much more. He remembers what you learnt and should know; once you make a mistake, he won’t correct you by giving you the right version (which is usually pointless), but he makes you stop and makes you try to remember yourself. He makes you get rid of those deeply rooted errors and works on your pronunciation, so that we sound a little closer to what real Brazilians sound like. In a nutshell: Murillo is an excellent teacher and I fully recommend him. He has made a big difference to me.

I'M BAACCCK. As a language nerd/ language teacher, I can confidently say that Murillo is one of the most talented teachers I have ever met. I feel privileged to be his student and to share my language journey with him. If you're serious about learning a language, feel confident that Murillo will not only get you there but with a smile on his face. Obrigada.

Não posso acreditar que estou aprendendo com o Murillo há mais de um ano. Tem sido incrível olhar para trás, desde formar frases simples até falar sobre uma ampla gama de tópicos, seja uma conversa estruturada ou uma conversa livre. Gosto de como ele sempre dá feedback e explicações muito detalhadas para continuar a afinar sua gramática e o uso da língua. Feliz Ano Novo e estou ansiosa por mais um ano de aprendizagem!

Excellent. Was able to practice speaking over topics I will use regularly. Then we reviewed words and areas for improvement at end of lesson. Was super helpful without and gave me chance to both practice speaking and then grow.

Murillo is a great teacher. I always enjoy his interactive teaching style and the way he makes the class feel so natural. I even forget that it's a class until it's over and I realize how much I have learned. I can definitely see the improvement in my ability to speak and understand portuguese after taking lessons with him.

I always enjoy my classes with Murillo. The lessons are very fun and interactive, and challenge me to push myself. Murillo focuses on many aspects of learning, which help me to feel more confident with speaking, writing, and listening to other Brazilians.
