University of Iowa (Finance, Accounting)
Hello everybody, my Name is Addi. I am a native Spanish speaker from Venezuela and a freelance translator, interpreter and tutor with over 15 years of experience. I have a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and Finance, with a minor in Spanish Literature from the University of Iowa.
I have translated for Fortune 500 companies, law firms, franchises, to mention a few. I have interpreted for both State (including Juvenile) and Federal Courts. I have experience in simultaneously, consecutively, whispered and negotiation interpreting, in and out of the court system. Currently, I work for a global Fortune 500 company in which negotiating in Spanish speaking countries is one of my main responsibilities.
Learning a foreign language in the classroom, online or on your own isn't always an easy task. With the combination of understanding differences in learning dynamics accompanied with a wide variety of experiences, I am certainly capable of helping you understand and learn the material in the way that best fits your needs.
On my sessions I apply constructive teaching techniques which have proven excellent results. I am an avid observer of details which helps me determine the student's strengths.
I'm extremely focused on grammar, writing, and speaking instruction and skills for academic, business, or simply everyday use. To succeed in learning foreign language cognitive styles, critical thinking, and desire for knowledge are key. Cognitive styles allow perceiving, thinking, remembering, and recalling information, critical thinking allows for analysis of new information, and desire for knowledge give way to new ways to learn a foreign language.
I am patient, thorough, and receptive to the needs of others – but I do hold myself, and therefore my learners – to a reasonable standard. I believe I can greatly improve not only your grades and knowledge, but your study strategies and skills that will help you improve in all your academic or any other desired areas.
I have a flexible schedule, with weekends and evenings availability, along with selected afternoons.
