Hello dear Hosts,.
After finishing a long term contract of work with the Land Conservancy of British Columbia at Home,. in Canada,.. I have been traveling for the last 3 years,. Some in Central America,. some in Europe and some in South East Asia,. so far, doing volunteer work for different projects in the country side as well as City set-ups. It has more or less become a lifestyle for me, for the time being,. and I have loved just about every minute of it. These last years, I have been teaching English in Vietnam Cambodia, Spain and Morroco . It has been a very rewarding experience.
A bit about myself;
I am a mature woman,. with various work experience, ranging from office work to teaching, farming, gardening,. retail selling and different degrees of small business management .
On a more personal basis, I am a mother of University student who now is married and lives in Norway. I am in good health with happy dispositions,. My friends and acquaintances could describe me as calm, cheerful, patient, efficient and off course reliable.
(I guess you could say it comes with many years of practice, hahaha.)
My general work experience implies the mastering of a few basic skills.
Among other things,. I have cared for and looked after plants through different jobs and personal businesses for many decades,. landscaping,. classic gardens restoration,. bed designing,. ornamental plants reproduction and maintenance, and lately learning organic farming,.
I was also a painting contractor for a few years, and can manage small repairs of many kinds. One thing I enjoy and am pretty good at, is organizing or re-organizing work areas, such as tool sheds,. kitchens, or offices, etc.. in a functional way,. with a flair for cozy and warm atmosphere added on,. ( no matter what condition the place is in, to start with. I will bring it back to a pleasant work space I guarantee you will be very pleased with 😉 )
A few years back , I have acquired a TEFL certificate,. in Costa Rica, which was followed by a month of practicum, teaching English full time, to locals of different ages and English levels. I have since successfully and quite enjoyably taught English in Spain,. Vietnam, Cambodia and Morocco , from kindergarten to University students,. as well as done some private tutoring of adults.
My last long term full time job mentioned above, involved the responsibility of a large Heritage property and it's Gardens,. and the management of a vacation rental and a Lodge, so I am familiar with all aspects of the business,. from booking,. to hosting and housekeeping,.
, All this said, I do hope that my skills and experience could be of good use in your projects,. and endeavors, and I am looking forward to hear from you !
