Welcome to the idea of wanting to learn English.Let me start by saying learning English can be fun. People call me MJ but My real  name is Grace, and I have been a  Primary Teacher for nearly 30 years. Teaching is fantastic, enjoyable and rewarding job. I love to see people develop and make progress when being taught. Everyone learns differently so I like to take time help and know each person that I am teaching. I love to cook and entertain guests. I enjoy reading, cycling, exercise and  playing the guitar. I am happily  married and my husband is a Youth Worker. We  have 3 lively funny  children and our house is football crazy, happy and full of laughter. We love to party, entertain, travel,swim, dance and play a number of sports.
