Find Native Tutor and Online Teacher
Hello dear students. How are you? I'm a teacher by vocation and profession. I got a master's degree in education and teaching at the University of Porto in 2010. Since then, I have been working with several students including children, youth and adults. I have been teaching Philosophy, Portuguese and English languages to them. Last year, I began to teach the Portuguese language to foreign students. I'm glad when students show interest in a language with very old and rich roots. Portuguese has spread to all continents absorbing other cultures at its core. Be part of this adventure of learning because Portuguese is the language of poetry, travel and discoveries. Get involved in its meaning and sound, like the singing of the past that calls the hope for a better future. I teach the Portuguese language, culture and diversity of lusophones. You will learn, and I will learn too.

Ellarigu Suswagatha (meaning: welcome all in Kannada) Having been born and brought up in the cultural capital of Karnataka, Mysore, where Kannada is the spoken and administrative language, I have huge admiration and respect towards it. I've studied Kannada as a language all through my professional degree in computer science. I'm a software developer by profession and also occasionally a Kannada tutor for those who are interested. Kannada is a beautiful language having its heritage. It has its script. The Halmidi inscription is the oldest found scripture which dates back to 450CE - 500CE. I'm happy to share the knowledge I have with the people who need it. Sirigannadam Balge!

What should you expect in learning a language?
Learning a new language takes time, lets you put in a bit more effort and resources to make it work.

You should also expect that if it's just a bit too difficult for you, then you have to be open to your tutor about your difficulties so that what you've invested on will not go to waste. In that way, your tutor will be able to make adjustments and will help you achieve your goal.
How can you be more effective in learning a language?
Always be attentive in your lessons and when you're done with them, make sure that you are able to practice and apply what you learned. Your tutor will give you tips on how to practice on your own and might give you homework. If the tutor doesn't, then you can ask for it so you can keep practicing off schedule. You always have to help yourself while you're on your own so that when you're already out there and speaking with the locals, it's not that hard to pick up on what you learned anymore.
What factors should you consider in learning a language online?
Learning a language online needs you to invest in a good internet connection, if you don't have any yet, because it's the only way to work with a tutor. You also have to invest your time and if time is difficult to spare, you might as well choose a platform that allows you to choose your own schedule. You also need space, like a quiet room, where you can speak with the tutor and be able to focus on your lessons.
How can you help your language tutor be effective in teaching you?
Always be attentive with what your tutor is teaching you. It's the only way for you to understand and learn easily. Make sure that you follow the schedule that you agreed on or what you choose for yourself if that's how it works. You also have to participate in the activities that your tutor has planned for you because these have been tailored fit with the requirements that you have set. If you are asked to practice during the days when you don't have lessons, you have to religiously do so.
What kind of language tutor should you choose?
It really depends on your learning style. If you think you can learn better if the person is more of someone who teaches professionally then you can find someone who teaches that way. If you're the type who learns while just talking to the teacher, then you can opt for someone who's friendly, enthusiastic and fun but still focusing on the lesson at hand. Always read a tutor's personal introduction so you have a bit of an idea who they are and how they teach.
What's the advantage of hiring a tutor?
It's an advantage to hire a tutor because lessons will be customized for you and you'll be guided in learning them to make it more effective for you.
