I am a psychologist and a polyglot educator. I teach skills, which means that I help you do what you need according to your circumstances, which you know better than I do.Your process sets the time of our work: yours and mine. My concern is to guide you towards a useful direction of thinking; this means that I help you listen to yourself and think. This includes helping you become aware of your emotions, their meanings, and the opportunities they suggest behind the discomfort and difficulties they produce. We will interact intellectually and discursively and come up with your best solution.
I offer a space to discuss your personal and family concerns, free of judgment, full of deep respect for individuality, and with a culturally flexible view of the human experience. I majored in psychology in Colombia, where I worked in clinical psychology in the context of education and armed conflict, focussing on the prevention of conflict and gender issues. Furthermore, I am also a polyglot, with additional training and experience in teaching of practical skills for communication, so we can use your language and actually get to listen to your needs.

She is an excellent teacher, I like the way she teaches me. Her lessons are interesting and didactic, I would suggest taking it.
Learning a new language to most is a daunting task, but Juliana makes the process accessible regardless of your level. Her savoir de vivre and ability to speak 5 languages makes her classes dynamic, fun, and challenging. She’s intentional about her methods, encourages me to speak during the class, and uses various situations/contexts to help with retention.
She’s helped me with medical Spanish, and I stopped using an interpreter after 3 months of studying with her, mostly because she helped me prioritize vocabularies that are highly utilized and she adapted to focus on concepts I poorly understood. In addition to the language instruction, her nuanced understanding of Latin American culture is a strength. Her psychology background was handy when I asked for her help with motivational interview and analyze one of my recorded consultations with my patients. She provided me with respectful and insightful feedback. Two years after I started with her, I’m now learning French. I really appreciate that we can make comparisons between French and Spanish, and it helps me identify gaps in my Spanish that I never paid attention to before while reinforcing my study of French. Dicho esto, la recomiendo a alguien que esté dispuesto a aprender un nuevo idioma!
Tenho aulas com a Juliana há 6 meses e vejo grandes progressos no meu inglês. Ela prepara o conteúdo direcionadas as minhas necessidades. As aulas são dinâmicas, agradáveis com assuntos interessantes e não são nada repetitivas. Ela entende o seu erro, onde você erra e explica de modo que você entenda o certo e porque é o certo. Recomendo a quem quer acelerar seu processo de aprendizagem, de forma personalizada e não quer depender de cursos.
