Fernando helped me with translations for my website annikahallguides.com from English into Brazilian Portuguese. He did an excellent job and delivered exactly as promised.

It was a real pleasure to work with Fernando on an English/Brazilian Portuguese language-learning publishing project. He is fast, reliable, knowledgeable, always available for questions. I wouldn't hesitate to ask him to work on future projects.

Fernando is an excellent teacher, both of practical, day-to-day conversational Portuguese and of more technical grammatical or literary aspects of the language. I unreservedly recommend him for any level of students and for both business-related and private teaching
