"Having attended two years of Portuguese classes, at Degree level, with both Jana and Kenya, I have only positive feedback for them both. Engaging, enjoyable and above all results orientated. My level of Portuguese improved way above my expectations and the key ingredient to both Jana and Kenya's methods is to marry their teaching skills to a class of individuals who have different levels of Portuguese.What I will also say is that the attendance levels of their classes were consistent, everybody...

“We have been studying Portuguese with Jana for several months now and find it really enjoyable. Jana is an excellent teacher. As a retired teacher myself, I appreciate her methods and expertise. She is very organised, with lessons always well planned, but at the same time she is also very flexible and able to adapt and tailor her plans to our needs. Her lessons are never dull. They are inventive, employing a wide range of teaching aids (magazines, CD’s and an amazing range of websites to help u...

“Working with Kenya over the last year of Portuguese study has been a fantastic experience. Kenya has a thorough and professional approach to her teaching while remaining flexible to my personal objectives and abilities. Our classes always strike a good balance between technical study, culture and conversation; whatever the subject, Kenya is able to facilitate conversation and fluency. She keeps the lessons very fresh and interesting, and is happy to focus on my interests (preparing for a trip t...

“Lessons with Jana are great!  I have lessons at my workplace and Jana always tailors the content and speed depending on my energy levels on that particular day.  The lessons are always good fun and I genuinely look forward to them each week. I would definitely recommend Jana; her good sense of humour, impressive organisational skills (for a Brasilian!), enthusiasm and her obvious pride when she realises one of her students have grasped a new concept will certainly ensure you will enjoy learning...

“I’m a student at Birkbeck University. Kenya was my teacher for two years. She is an amazing teacher! I truly enjoyed her classes because she managed to make them quite entertaining, including culture or any current interesting subjects, balancing that with grammar. In those two years with Kenya, she helped me to make a huge improvement in my Portuguese grammar and I felt quite confident when speaking Portuguese as well. I would strongly recommend Kenya as a teacher because of her valuable skill...
