Hola! My Name is Nino and I am from Lima, Peru. When I moved to Columbus 10 years ago, every time I mentioned that I was from Lima people asked me how I felt coming from a small town, thinking that I was from Lima, Ohio. It always made me smile because the Lima (pronounced Lee-mah) I come from is four times bigger than Columbus and it has the population of New York City.
I am so happy that I came to this city because here is where I met my wife Penny and also because you can breathe sports everywhere. As a sports journalist I am so blessed to work for the Columbus Crew as a Spanish radio field reporter and Spanish online writer. I also had the opportunity to coach soccer for the Golden Bears of Upper Arlington middle school. That was a great experience- not just because I could share my knowledge of the sport with young athletes, but because of the fact that I was able to motivate them and get the best out of them. How? By improving the communication on the field. I noticed that nobody was talking during the game so I created a drill where the ball supposed to be the phone number of the most beautiful girl they know, so they have to ask for "the phone" in order to get the ball. They were never quiet during the games anymore and helped improve the performance of the team, we reached the playoffs that year.
Spanish is my first language, and my stepdaughters are taking Spanish in school. The best way to get better is practice, practice, practice. But with interaction, not just repetition. We just did a little restaurant play (very useful, by the way) with the waiter-customer role play and it really helped to recreate real situations.
I graduated from one of the top 5 schools in Peru, I am eager to bring knowledge, quality and fun at the same time. I think the tutor is like a personal trainer that helps you and guide you to achieve your goals, working together as a team, together we can score, together we can win.
I worked for two years as a line cook at Jack and Benny's, a busy campus breakfast spot. I can make perfect eggs in 8 different ways, omelets, and French toast. I am also a proud representative of Peruvian cuisine and an expert ceviche maker. I sold 200 ceviches at the Latino festival in Columbus. I can grill to perfection.
I was a member of the varsity team at San Agustin Catholic High School, Chiclayo, Peru, and Captain of the soccer team at Universidad de Piura, Peru. Additionally, I have coached soccer at Upper Arlington Middle School and have worked as a referee at Soccer First-Hilliard. I have also been a sports writer at Once, a soccer magazine.
