My name is Carlo and I’m an English teacher. I created this site to help me organize my material and for anyone to use as a resource who might need a little help with English grammar.
I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, where I lived for 21 years. Then I moved to The United States where I lived for 17 years before moving to Brazil. I’ve been working as an English teacher for more than 15 years and because of my background I feel very comfortable teaching both British and American English of all levels.
If you have any questions, comments suggestions or corrections, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com
Enjoy the site!
