My name is Arnaldo José Seijas Biel, I am 30 years old and I am based in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Before I got my teaching degree from Universidad Pedagógica Experimental Libertador "Rafael Alberto Escobar Lara" back in 2010, I had started teaching English at ELTI, Venezuela. This was my first teaching position in 2006. Since, I have had sufficient experience to master the English language with high competence.
I have held numerous teaching positions at different institutions, working with ESL, ESP, and In-company teaching. I have hosted, produced and edited radio and TV Shows in Venezuela (4+ experience). Currently, I am taking a masters degree course in Spanish as a Second Language at Universidad Internacional Iberoamericana de Puerto Rico and I do freelancing as a translator. I also work for SAMTEC here in Ecuador (a company that offers different services to heavy transportation vehicles).
I have been studying English since the age of 12 and my efforts to understand the language and acquire a respectable command of it have continued to this day, academically and professionally. In 2008, I held teaching positions at two public high schools and a private language teaching institution (John Smeaton Community College, Priesthorpe High School, and Leeds City Language Learning, respectively).
Most recently, I lived and worked in Dublin for 3 years. There, I finished a course on IELTS foundations (1-year preparation), and English for Life (a 2-year course). I took these courses at ECM College (European College of Management). At the time, I had a job at a KFC restaurant; I escalated to a managerial position. Simultaneously, I worked at “Café Gerard’s & Deli” as a barista.
In 2016, I lived in the Netherlands for 6 months to further extend my background in English variations. At the same time I did volunteering for Villa Zilverlinde in Vorden (Eastern Netherlands).
I am a keen reader and a passionate learner. I also love bouldering, lead climbing and I am married to adventure, travelling. I play chess and what I enjoy the most is helping people.
I hope this little introduction serves as the beginning of a quite satisfactory business relationship. I have all the credentials supporting these experiences and they will be available upon request.
