Area Covered: Manchester and its outskirts for live jobs, UK and other countries for web/remote jobs.

    I had worked as a teacher both in a classroom and on-line settings for more than twelve years. Within the span of certain years in teaching, I was promoted twice. I became also a customer service representative in some call centers, where I took care of the different needs and complaints of the customers/clients. I did also remote trouble shooting for a cable company. At certain seasons. I write and conceptualize events for some companies and sometimes write ads and press releases. I had also my shares of telemarketing. I do not just work because of money but I want to be an asset and to develop more of myself in my chosen field. My passion for writing inspires me to teach. I have been writing for school plays , which are some adaptations and when I am not teaching, I write sequence guides and concepts of an ad or events, such as product launching.
