I am a retired Systems Engineer with extensive knowledge of and experience with Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint and Word. I was born and raised in Venezuela and, as such, my Spanish is well balanced; I am an American Citizen and have lived in the US since 1977. I am a trained coach with extensive experience in the personal and professional development of individuals and groups. I am an excellent teacher and my style of tutoring is collaborative. I am very focused on goals and flexible on how to achieve them.
I held leadership positions from Supervisor to Chief Information Officer. During my career as leader, one of my highest priorities has always been to have my successor ready. I achieved this by understanding people's aspirations, where they were regarding skills and experience, and designing for them a developmental path of class work plus hands on experiences that would prepare them for the next step in their career. I am sure I can do the same for you.
As a Native Spanish speaker, I went through the process of acquiring English as a second language. I did it so effectively that it eventually became my first language. I have techniques, processes and exercises that will make the learning process effective and enjoyable.
I have over 35 years of bilingualism/translation practical experiences in the colloquial, business and plain street-wise aspects of English/Spanish. Born and raised in Venezuela, I lived there for 25 years (with Spanish as my native language) before moving to the US, where I've lived for the last 35 years and have achieved an expert level of domain of the English language (certified editor).
I have a high level of neutrality in Spanish (no local accent or slang preferences), along with vast knowledge of Central American and Caribbean Spanish, South-American Spanish, and Peninsular Spanish nuances, along with and extensive vocabulary.
A Systems Engineer by training, I have held many positions in the IT World from programmer to executive, and leadership positions from Supervisor to C-level, with companies like IBM, EDS and American Express. With AmEx, I led technical/business teams developing and supporting their LA/C (Latin American and Caribbean) business units.
Lastly, I have taught Spanish to my four daughters who were born here in the US to a German mother.
I have over 33 years of business writing skills as a producer and later editor of documentation for business systems. I have a high level of professionalism on my written prose, extensive experience in the edition of documents for end-user and/or customer consumption, as well an extensive vocabulary.
