I am a semi-retired teacher, with over 25 years experience. I am secondary trained and have taught many subjects through the years. My specialist areas are Psychology and Business Studies. I was a senior manager in education before my retirement and now teach part time. I also have experience of running my own successful retail business (now sold) and working in a variety of different environments.
At the current time I am available to assist on Saturdays and Sundays British standard time. I am always happy to work with enthusiastic customers and I will endeavor to advise you as efficiently and as promptly as I can. I will always be constructive in the event that your writing needs amending so as to sound more natural or formal depending on your needs. English can be a tricky language, indeed, a lot of British people (that is people from the separate countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) often make mistakes due to general errors that tend to creep into English usage due to different accents, social media and texting, so be proud of yourself for coming this far, to the point where you are able to write independently in a language that you were not born to!
I am currently learning Spanish, so I can understand the challenges experienced by those learning a second language. I also play acoustic guitar and sing for pleasure. My aim is to progress to the point where I am confident enough to perform in public. I really enjoy watching television, particularly Science Fiction and Fantasy - films and series. I am fortunate enough to have visited many European countries, including France, Spain, Germany and Portugal. I also visited Egypt, America and India. The most interesting country I have visited to date has been India as it is extremely culturally diverse and different from the UK, while being familiar in some ways due to historic British influences. It is my wish to visit Japan, especially during Cherry Blossom time. I would love to try the real food of Japan and see the magnificent traditional architecture as well as the ultra modern elements the country has.
My correction style will be dependent on the kind of order that is made. Where full explanations are required I shall attempt not to swamp the reader with too much grammatical bumph (noun - lovely word!), rather I shall attempt to use seasoned descriptive as opposed to prescriptive explanations, while acknowledging the hard work of the writer and giving credit where it is due.

    Dear Teacher Jafa,

    Thank you very much for correcting my email and also answering my question.
    I found your explanations very informative as always.

    Which to use singular or plural always confuses me. I guess I need to read English more to get use to this.

    Thank you again for your help.

    I'm looking forward to having your support again soon.

    Kind regards,
