Years of experience living overseas provided me with the opportunity to learn different languages and skills. Additionally, a career in the banking and finance industry helped me acquire knowledge of and keep abreast of the latest developments in this environment. This experience also afforded me the opportunity to master different business-oriented applications such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, Quicken, Quickbooks and others.
Prior to attending Graduate Business School at the University of Miami, I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Comparative Studies at the University of Essex in Colchester, England, which allowed me to study subjects such as Art History, Latin American and African Literature as well as the Classics from Greek, English, French and Spanish Literature.
During my year abroad, I had the opportunity to teach Spanish and English in an informal environment to colleagues whose job profile required at least a working knowledge of either of these two languages. In addition, as some of my teaching experience took place within the framework of my professional career, I also taught specialized terminology that applies to finance, banking, agriculture and the music industry.
In teaching languages, I prefer a loosely structured approach based largely on conversation with some instruction on grammar, punctuation and phonetics. Reading is also important, and I like to choose material with which the pupil feels comfortable and is interested in.
