Forget that I asked to edit my CV! That too much to ask. I only asked cause I saw other CV's being edited on this site.
I would love any critical feedback though. Would be extremely helpful! :D
Im also considering changing my CV to a functional CV on the basis that I only have a small bit of TEFL experience doing one to one experience. What do you think?
