I was a bit timid at first but I soon got used to it.Eversince I have been teaching and I just love it. I have worked at various schools, sometimes for adults and sometimes for kids. Now I am looking forward to working online.
Interests: I love Music. I play the guitar and make a noise on the banjo. I try to sing, my wife listens very patiently. I love to use music in my lessons and children love to sing. I have many songs to help children memorise words and phrases. I use lots of visuals to help stimulate children and I have many learning games that children can play with everyday objects like plastic cups and balls, toy animals and paper and pens. I have over five years of experience teaching children online.

Through personal study and practical experience I have become a English Teacher. Also, I have passed all the entrance exams to work as an English Teacher at schools in Brazil.
