I have been taking lessons for quite some time with Jefferson, and I can say that he is an excellent teacher; as well as a kind and genuine human being. His approach as a teacher, that is to say, the methods, and materials that he uses, are carefully selected in accordance to your needs as student, regardless of the level of understanding you already might have in the language. In addition, he is a good listener, one who is willing to collaborate with the learner to bring out the student's interests and precise needs. Accordingly, he will integrate these particular needs and interests that the student has into his lessons, thereby making each lesson with Jefferson all the more enriching. I know I will continue to rely on Jefferson as a cornerstone teacher and guide in my Portuguese learning journey.

Jefferson is truly and incredible teacher! I recently completed my 100th lesson with him and feel so grateful for his expertise and patience. I meet with him 3 times a week and always find myself smiling after the lessons because he finds a way to make learning a new language fun! He’s brilliant as a professor, creative in his materials, and always happy to adjust to my season of life. I can’t recommend him enough. Obrigada, Jefferson!!

I took 16 classes with Jefferson for my trip to Brazil. After returning home, I fully admit it was the best decision ever. Many times, the Portuguese saved my life there, and I felt relaxed and prepared for it. Jefferson not only introduced the language to me but walked me through everyday situations through really cool dialogues - how to make an order in a restaurant, buy a bus ticket, talk to a police officer (luckily, I didn’t use it in real life)… Apart from being helpful, our classes were engaging, fun and built specifically for my needs. If I go to Brazil ever again, I will definitely take another course with Jefferson before my next trip.

I have been taking Portuguese lessons with Jefferson for several months now. I can't recommend him enough. I started lessons with him with 0 confidence to talk in Portuguese, and now I am able to have a full conversation in Portuguese! Not only did he help me get out of my comfort zone to help me speak, but he also provided enough material and support to build a strong base. Obrigada Jefferson !

Another great lesson with Jefferson. I feel like he is very patient and attentive. I appreciate the constructive feedback he readily gives to ensure correct pronunciation which is what I need at this time.

First class with Jefferson was great! He took his time to make sure I was understanding the material and helped with my pronunciation of the letters and words. Great feedback to help improve my grammar and conversational skills.
