I graduated from the University of Texas in May of 1994 with a BA Degree in English and communications. In my spare time, I learned Chinese and my first job was with General Motors (1995 to 2000), working as a trilingual interpreter and translator (Spanish, English and Chinese) at their factories in Shanghai, China and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. I can speak, read and write fluent Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese and Spanish as well. In 2000, I moved to Hong Kong and worked for two very large international trading companies, Test-Rite of Taiwan, and Total Sourcing & Business Solutions (based in New York).

Since 2000, I have been working in the business arena, with a lot of tutoring jobs on the side; teaching both Chinese, Spanish and English, as well as taking many foreigners around China for business purposes. I also worked closely with many Chinese factories, helping them to translate their documents into English and helping them to sell their items overseas, mostly to the USA market.

This year, 2014, I moved back to Las Vegas, NV to be closer to my family, all of whom live here, and I am starting to tutor many students in Chinese, Spanish and English as well. I have over 20 years of translation, proofreading, editing and business experience, so I can definitely help you to learn your target language and use the proper in-country terminology and phrases. Let me know what you are looking to learn, and I'll do my best to help you achieve your goals in the shortest time possible. Thanks!
