Befor ei start let me make it clear that my criticism hopefully will help you.
Its ok, if it were not for the fact you were advertising services as a web designer it could pass. Think the fact you used tables, everythin looks very square. Also one of the sites in your portfolio is basically identical to your own site.
One point on the images, particularly the one on the portuguese site in portfolio, its way too big, resize the smaller one on the homepage and let the big one load if a user clicks on it.
A word of advice would also be too fill your portfolio with varied sites. Not so much a portfolio but a gallery of what you can do. The web is full of people who make sites now, and chances are a customer will have a quick look around lots of them, you will only get one chance to impress them so a good portfolio or showcase is a nessesity.
Hope you dont think I have been to hard.
Wish you well with your endeavours.

A little advice: You should really ditch the table based design. If any real clients come to you for help, and they see that your entire site is table based - You're going to lose a ton of business.
Likewise with the portfolio pieces. You need to start coding your websites using table-less layouts. Those projects you've done will likely be good enough for any non-technical small businesses or charity organizations, but you won't be seeing any big clients.
It is in your very best interest to learn how to markup without tables. Do it soon, so that all your future projects can be shining examples of your capabilities to markup clean, and semantic documents. Once you have some portfolio pieces that aren't table based, I'd definitely take down the examples of the sites you built w/ tables, because that imo would damage your credibility.

All the advice makes a lot of sense, I just didn't use css to it's full potential yet for some reason. I'm definitely gonna look into it.
Thanks very much for the advice
