Psychologist teaches English for different fields, for speakers of Spanish, French, Italian, Romanian, German, Portuguese

Methodology

I am flexible, based on the student's needs and personality.
My teaching method adjusts to the student and to the goal he/she has for the class.
I, also, adjust to the student's pace, which is different depending on each person's language abilities and interest.

Background

I am a MD General Medicine/PhD Psychology. I have been teaching/interpreting/translating, for 20 years.
About 50% of my students were learning for work purposes, about 20% for traveling as tourists, about 20% for pursuing studies in English, and about 5% just because they liked languages.
