I'm an American from New York City. Now I live and teach in the Canary Islands, Spain. I enjoy reading, writing fiction, computers and the Internet. I also have a great love for the history of ancient Rome and spend a lot of time visiting Rome to explore the ruins and the city! When I'm not working, I play jazz guitar, record videos and photos of the island where I live, and write on many subjects. I speak English, hablo español, e parlo un po l'italiano! I've spent many years teaching and studying how people acquire language and am in the process of making all my discoveries available in the form of slideshows, videos and my blog.
I am a psychologist and have taught English for the past 25 years. I have been certified by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (USA). Currently, I teach doctors and other professionals in The Canary Islands, Spain. I have my own natural and cognitive method of teaching, using materials I have developed over the years, many of them available on the Internet for my students. I teach all levels from beginning to conversation, I can help prepare presentations or speeches, assist in professional writing (medical articles, business letters, etc.) and test preparation (TOEFL, First and Advanced Certificates, IELTS).
