To my potential students, parents and professional clients,
Let me provide you with a short description of my relevant experience, tutoring approach, and academic and professional background germane to my work in the field of language
teaching, adult and youth education, and cultural training in Latin
America. First of all, I am native fluent in both English
. I was born in the U.S. and moved to South America in my late teens. I have been extensively engaged in adult, youth and child education in the context of my professional career in international development and education. I directed “School of the Nations,” a bi-lingual (K-12) international school in Brazil.
Prior to that, I directed and taught for ten years at “One World Learning Institute,” an ESL
multilevel language academy in Peru. In recent years, I have designed and delivered training programs for teachers (TOT) and professional trainers in the art
and skills of empowering dynamic learning environments. My strongest abilities are centered in interpersonal communication, one-on-one and small group tutoring of Spanish and English, assessing student/client capabilities (establishing base-lines and bench marking), curricula design (personalized lesson plans), and building capacity for excellence and application of knowledge and skills acquired during tutoring.
My advanced study in the U.S. and professional career in Latin America have provided me with work opportunities and long-term residence in numerous Spanish and Portuguese
speaking countries. I have assembled a great deal of know-how in integrating language and culture into successfully designed learning strategies. The latter have enhanced individual and team learning and measurably improved student/client performance in all four language skills. I have a bachelor's degree in Business
and Organizational Behavior and a master's degree in Intercultural Management and Training from the U.S. I am co-founder and program director of a private non-profit University in Bolivia.
I am currently on sabbatical and have returned to the U.S from my overseas’ occupations in recent years as program consultant and country director for UN Agencies, World Bank, US Government aid agencies, NGOs, Universities, and private businesses in Central and South America, Africa and the Middle East. My goal within the next few months and for 2015 is to provide intensive and extensive tutoring in the greater Atlanta area. I look forward to serving your Spanish and ESL/EFL tutoring needs.
