Background

I have lived for 7 years in Latin America and visited most countries from Mexico to Argentina.
I lived for 28 years in Sweden. I am not only multilingual, but multicultural. My lessons are primarily conversational, involving role-playing, music, story telling, geography, culinary arts, head math and a lot of humor.

I have taught in kindergarten thru college situations, homeschooled kids and adults.
I've been teaching since 1985 (in Sweden), and in Maine since moving here in 2000. I have had hundreds of students of all ages...who have received a valuable exposure to foreign languages and cultures from a person who has been there and done that.

Roger's resume


R H: - Spanish Teaching / Coaching

Ran the Spanish program at Coastal Studies for Girls, Freeport, Maine in 2014.
Spanish grades K-8 at the Center for Teaching & Learning, Edgecomb, Maine in 2012.

I ran after school Spanish Teams at Hall Elementary School. Portland, 2006 – 2014.
Substitute Spanish teacher for many Portland and Westbrook Schools, k-12, 2000 – 08.

Taught after school Spanish for grades 1 – 5 at Breakwater School in Portland in 2013.
Homeschooled several Portland and Cape Elizabeth groups from 2008 to 2012.

As a Spanish speaker, I was a teacher, choral leader and coached basketball in Colombia at EAFIT in Medellin, where I taught college economics to Colombian undergraduates and founded a business library (Peace Corps 1968 - 1972).

Music in Spanish
I produced tours in Europe and Latin America with major performers from Sweden, Mexico, Chile, Cuba, Argentina and Nicaragua and I directed two music groups specializing in Latin music, resulting in albums, festivals, documentaries, and TV shows.

Film Work
I have translated over 250 movies, TV shows and private films from Swedish and Spanish into English for a variety of film producers, mostly for subtitles.

More Spoken and Written Spanish
At EAFIT (Escuela de Administracion y Finanzas) in Medellin, Colombia , I helped found a business research center, conducting scores of academic and market surveys in Spanish. Our goal was to find domestic companies with the capacity and know-how to replace imported goods with Colombian-made products, thusly improving Colombia’s balance of payments. I conducted surveys and published articles in business and research journals in Spanish.

Spanish Language Study
I completed a 6 week total immersion program (Peace Corps: eight-hour days) at Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA. It included courses in Latin American history, culture and geography - in preparation for Peace Corps.
I have been fluent in Spanish since 1968, living and teaching for 4 years in Medellin, Colombia. And I have traveled extensively in Central and South America, in the Caribbean in Spain and most of Europe..

Education:
AB Economics/Music - Bowdoin College, Brunswick, ME 1966
MBA Cornell University’s Johnson School of Business and Public Administration,
Ithaca, NY 1968
