Brazilian Portuguese tutor in Victoria, BC - learn from a native Brazilian!

Methodology

I like to have a structured approach that is also adaptable to each student's uniqueness. I find that the best way to teach is first to LEARN HOW a student learns. I bring joy and a positive attitude to the classroom.

Super Prof

Julia is one of our best tutors. High-quality profile and excellent qualifications, organised and responsive to lesson requests, appreciated by their students!

Background

I am a literary translator with tutoring experience looking to get back to my true passion - teaching. I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and studied Literature in France, where I got a Master's degree from Sorbonne University.

Julia helped me with my college monograph. She has all the qualities of a great teacher: methodical, patient, enthusiastic and caring. French grammar is not easy and yet she taught me things and after 10 years I still remember them!
