Teaching since:
1989

My name is Guillermo Ferrero and I have been teaching since 1989, when while working in Geneva, Switzerland, I had colleagues from many countries around the world. I began teaching English and Spanish to those colleagues who wished to acquire a working knowledge of either language. I helped these co-workers acquire skills in Spanish or English according to their needs as well as some grammatical skills to help them gain proficiency in these languages.
I graduated from the University of Essex in England, in 1979 with a BA in Literature and obtained an MBA from the University of Miami in 1989. As an undergraduate, I studied Art History, philology and World History, which helped me gain broader insights on various cultures, their literature and history. I used these insights together with the skillset acquired in the MBA program to enhance the scope of subjects I teach, adding skills such as the use of applications like MS Office Suite to offer students a broader range of information.
