    Description

    Hi everyone.

    I look forward to welcoming you with me in Kolkata. It gives me great pleasure to know more about local cultures, traditions and we'd love to hear tales of your travels. On a personal level, the fantastic cultural exchange has been wonderful and I look forward to a culturally diverse adventure with you.

    Coming to me, I am a teacher and educator looking to build my own business. I just started an online class service which I will expand into freelance English teaching projects and a marketing consultant firm or helping with English classes depending on tasks required from day to day.

    Coming to where I live, it’s in the suburbs of Kolkata which is relatively quiet in comparison to the city. There is connectivity to the city by bus and metro. The apartment is very safe with security and various facilities like a library, swimming pool, etc.

    Currently, I can accommodate only female workawayers but I hope to change that in the future.

    I am looking for somebody to support and assist me in matters of teaching, marketing and customer relations of my startup.
    If there is someone who has skills in building websites and Digital marketing it would be highly appreciated



    However, I have experienced each individual has their own set of strengths and I try to get to know you better so that I can assign the work accordingly.

    Why Kolkata?

    Have a wonderful journey ahead.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    -Gain a perspective in to the Indian way of life
    - Participate in Indian Festivals and other occasions even weddings if you are lucky
    - exchange our opinion
    - I love discussing about topics around the world and would be happy to help you with any question you may have

    Please come with an open mind and remember that India is an unique and different country. Therefore expect the unexpected and as I like to say while travelling "Its not good or bad. Its different." The same way there might be many things that might surprise you and it might be very different than your home/native land. It might take a while to get comfortable as India is the kind of country that is an acquired taste.
