  • Description


    Hello there, I'm Ricardo and I own an English School in Juara, Brazil. The school has 66 students ranging from primary school age, right up through teenagers and adults. My students are all dedicated and motvated to learn. They are always welcoming and excited about meeting a foreigner. It's a small one classroom school but it is very modern. I am looking for someone who can help with the oral practice in classes so that students have the chance to practice their English with a native speaker.

    I am 38 years-old and living by myself. I established the school 7 and a half years ago and it has been growing from strength to strength - I am very passioante about it and very dedicated to my students. I am a very helpful and funny person, and I really enjoy socializing.
