Bio: 
My name is Carole Avison Wood; I'm a mature, experienced CELTA (teaching English as a Foreign Language to Adults) teacher. I've taught English in Europe: Spain, France, Germany, The Americas: Costa Rica & Brasil, the Far East: Laos & Cambodia. The work that I do now in England is seasonal which means that I have some free time to volunteer. Earlier this year, I was teaching English to local Charity employees & working on micro finance projects. Whilst in Laos, I also lead the Business English lessons &mentored the native Lao Business English teachers. These teachers hadn't been involved in any business nor had they been to an English speaking country . I’ve enjoyed all the voluntary work very much & so I've decided to do something similar early in 2017 when I will again have spare time. So, I've begun the search for something similar - and I found your organisation. I was really interested to read that you have such a wide range of opportunities to benefit the community that you help. Could we have a conversation to explore options that would be useful to you & that I'd enjoy? For information, I speak Spanish, German & French. Please let me know if you would like a copy of my CV. Looking forward to hearing from you. Carole Avison Wood
