Hello! I'm William. I am currently on a gap year from my studies.
I have spent the first six months of my year on a volunteer teaching placement in a school located in the North of Spain. However now I'm travelling around Europe doing various Workaway experiences before I return to New Zealand in November
My other interests include guitar, literature, and music. I can speak a bit of Castilian Spanish, however my current goal is to become fluent, as well as learning other languages!
My main objectives when travelling is to gain knowledge and experience, while also developing a set of skills that I can use in the future. I love to meet new people, learn about their culture and experiences and also share mine!
I am a motivated and hard worker, but also love to get busy!
My skills and experiences are varied in different fields.
I have recently completed my CELTA qualification (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults), therefore I am professionally trained to teach English to adults of all levels.
In addition to this, I have done volunteer English teaching in Spain. I have tutored and taught classes of students between the ages of 4-12 years of age in a primary school. I have also provided private tuition to adults and teenagers in English.
Secondly, I have actively volunteered in a contemporary art gallery in my home town of Christchurch, New Zealand. From this experience, I have learnt about doing customer service, computer skills and basic admin stuff, cleaning and have a good knowledge on art!
I also had a part time job with a catering company, where I would serve drinks, food, and do manual labor such as carrying boxes and doing set ups etc.
