Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Travelling has always been a passion of mine, I have visited many European countries, such as Germany, Spain, Czech Republic etc. I’ve traveled extensively in the UK.  Apart from Europe and UK, I’ve also traveled to Egypt, Mexico, Cayman Islands, Thailand, United States, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland and so on.  I love how each country has a very specific culture, I make sure that when I travel, I can speak some of the native language to help me do the basics and show respect to the locals.  I make sure that I learn the Do’s and Don’ts of the countries.  During my time in Thailand, I traveled through Northern Thailand from Village to Village, learning their culture, learning cooking techniques etc.  My trips through Rural areas in Thailand as well as Africa has been one of my greatest trips and passions in life.

I hope to get the opportunity to teach English.

I don't have a Degree although I feel that I still have a lot to offer in experience during my travels and the very long list of Certificates as well as a Diploma that I have.  I grew up on a farm and my Mom was a single parent, so we didn't have money to study after high school.  I couldn't afford to study full time because that would mean that I couldn't financially contribute enough to support my family.  Although, once I earned enough money, I studied part time what I could afford and would not interfere too much with my full time job.

I hope that you would still take the time to go through my CV and consider me for a teaching position.

My fiancee is also busy with her TEFL course and we are hoping to be placed together.  She has a Bachelors Degree and will finish her TEFL course very soon.

Looking forward to a new adventure.
