Native speaker of Spanish and English (born and raised in Panama of parents from the US and Panama). Proficient speaker of professional Portuguese with a good accent (learned from both Brazilian Embassy and the Defense Language Institute for Continental Portuguese). I am good at helping eliminate accents and am practical in my approach.

I attended three years of engineering in the university in Panama before coming to the United States to complete my degrees here. I have since conducted business extensively in Latin America representing industry in cutting-edge telecommunications and information technology, which is where my wireless and computer knowledge comes from. Therefore my knowledge of business and technology terms would be desirable for people wanting to also proficiently do the same in those target languages.

I am trained as a Staff Training Supervisor by the Air Force and have a New Jersey Department of Education Certificate of Eligibility for the Alternate Route Path Teaching Program. I am also in the Academic Advisory Council for Mercer Community College, where I have also served as an instructor for Networks and Computer Technology. Proficient in getting people started in the area of Cryptocurrencies.

I look forward to providing my services.

Best regards,
Pete T.

I am a member of the Information Technology Academic Advisory Commission 2001 -present (Chairperson 2007-2008) for Mercer County Community College in New Jersey, where I advise in the type of courses, fields and instruction that is necessary to develop students in the area of Information Technology. I have also been certified as a Staff Developer / Trainer Supervisor by the US Air Force, Peterson AFB, Space Command, Colorado Springs, CO. Furthermore, I also have 29+ years of professional military, government, commercial and industry experience in diverse areas, wherein I have gladly and successfully served as professional mentor to others throughout the years. For example: I mentored a military sniper returning from the gulf, only to find there were no jobs waiting upon returning. I reviewed the case and explored options arriving to the recommendation that a career in criminology be pursued and pursuing this career, logistics could be learned through the Civil Air Patrol so that a job that could put them through school could be pursued, which they did. I mentored another military veteran who was certified in the area of calibrations. Examined the similarities in the Military Operational Specialty (MOS) and comparable fields in the civilian world and suggested they look into Electronic Equipment Sales, which they did; as well as attending several first responder meetings, which they are now doing, in order to sign-up. In doing so, free specialty training is available in a compatible and marketable area of their interest: Emergency Electronic Communications Operations and Maintenance. In another of many occasions, a young person aspiring to be a Radio Disk Jockey approached me for advice to whom I pointed to several college and mom and pop radio stations where this person could serve as an entry-level apprentice while gaining experience and completing courses in the area of broadcasting. I also hold several certifications in the area of radio communications and as a former Radio DJ was able to provide
