Qualifications & Experience

My name is Fredy.
I have a CERTIFICATION from The Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española
SIELE which certifies electronically the command of the Spanish language proficiency for students and professionals.
Is promoted by the Instituto Cervantes, the Universidad Autónoma de México, the Universidad de Salamanca and the Universidad de Buenos Aires. These institutions guarantee the standards for quality and good practices in the creation of the tests and the use of diverse linguistic varieties in the Hispanic world.
SIELE certifies the degree of proficiency for the Spanish language with four tests with total of 690 points.
1.-Reading :B2
2.-Listening comprehension : B1
3.-Written expression and Interaction :C1
4.-Spoken expression and interaction: B1
The exam also takes as a reference the levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

I successfully completed the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) for Spanish and have been rated according to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages ACTFL as SUPERIOR according to the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines 2012 – Speaking.

I am a bilingual tutor and a motivation speaker. I have a Bachelor's degree in Mercantile and Administration from Technical Commerce School in Venezuela and 2 years of Economics study from University of Zulia, Maracaibo-Venezuela. I study Spanish Grammar in the S.B. Seminary of Kentucky at Manhattan New York School. I have completed the Citizen Police at the P.W. County Criminal Justice Academy. Also as part of my continuing education in the Hispanic community as well as the grow aspect with the culture in the DC Metro area, I have earned the Certificate of Hispanic Entrepreneurial Program by Hispanic Committee of Virginia. Certificate of Business Owners Legal Solutions.

Tutoring experiences include: I have taught for 10 years in Venezuela and 10 years in USA young adult/college age Sunday School Class. I tutor to business owners in the area of Administration and Government regulation. I tutored to small groups of employees in the area of Legal Services. I volunteer tutor to independent distributors at INT in the Washington Metro area, groups of 30 to 60 people. I found these experiences very rewarding and I look forward to working with you.

My method is unique because I teach how to think in Spanish, some techniques are: FVE, 4-W, and WIN. I not only use visual and hands-on, I also introduce the natural think association for faster word to word association. As a motivational speaker, I understand how important it is to communicate.

My schedule is flexible, while I do have a 24 hours cancellation policy I offer makeup classes. I look forward to be part of your new achievement. I enjoy teaching Spanish because I can share part of my culture with so many people that speak other languages.

I consider that the best way to communicate with somebody is by knowing their culture. Speaking different languages opens the door to a better understanding of the world that we live in. The opportunities are endless.
