Native Speaker

Carlos Cruz writes: I was born in Arroyo in Southern Puerto Rico ashore the Caribbean Sea. Puerto Rico being part of the Commonwealth of the United States. My education was completed through the public system inæmy hometown and then at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico and the Fundaci-n Ortega y Gassett in Spain where I earned a degree in Business Administration Managerial Economics. I love travelling around the world and have visited many countries in Europe and Latin America. I came to Boston in 1997 after working several years for the Government at the Puerto Rico Planning Board. In Boston, I had several professional experiences in the Financial and Investment fields for companies such as Mellon and Bank of America. My teaching experience began in 1997 at Berlitz and in 2000 I was nominated Teacher of the Year in the New England District. From there, I started to teach Spanish at Simmons College as well as Spanish for Business and Social Services Professionals at the Harvard Business School. In recent years I have participated in different language programs and taught at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Genzyme Pharmaceutical and Arnold Worldwide, to name a few. I started teaching Spanish at Northeastern University in 2009.
