Hello, Claude and welcome to Just Answer!

Here is your translation for "I turned sixty yesterday.": Me cumplí sesenta años, ayer.
You can also put 'ayer' at the front of the sentence: Ayer, me cumplí sesenta años.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I am trying to learn Spanish
with help , but my tutor and I sometimes have difficulty.

Is the following correct ?
Antes de llegar a ser profesor, manejaba un camión para
ganar mucho dinero.

Expert:  Cher replied 2 years ago.
Hello again, Claude and you're most welcome!

It's my pleasure to be of help to you with your Spanish.

I would change that sentence in the following way: Antes de llegar a ser profesor, yo manejaba un camión para ganar dinero. (or-- para ganar más dinero)--translation:
Before becoming a teacher, I drove a truck to make money. (or-- to make more money).

Because ''manejaba" can mean I drove or he, she, you (usted) drove, you need to put in your subject pronoun 'yo', unless you were referring to he (él), she (ella) or you (usted). I took the sentence to be written in the 'yo' form.

I am having trouble understanding the use of the passive voice in Spanish. I understand the true passive when the agent is named. I understand the use of "SE ' in such sentences as SE SALVÓ A LA VICTIMA.
What about this sentence ? MI CARTERA FUE ROBADA ANOCHE.
My wallet was stolen last night.

or this sentence. SE ROBÓ MI CARTERA ANOCHE.
Are they both correct ? Please explain why.
