Further Notes
I am a hard-working, dedicated team player, with a highly varied teaching background. In my free time I enjoy watching and
playing sports. I am a keen cyclist and, in 2012, was part of a team that raised over 14,000 for Cancer Research and The British
Heart Foundation. As a multi-instrumentalist, I also enjoy playing and listening to music, as well as studying Spanish (currently
with an uncredited B1 level).
I hold a full, unblemished UK driver's licence and I am willing to travel and relocate for the role if necessary. Unfortunately, due
to a severely reactive case of tinnitus in my left ear, I am unable to teach children.

This is a personal reference. Mr Spendley, who runs a local engineering firm, has known me for 20 years.
I have been in charge of organizing the English language courses for our staff since they started in 2009. During this period I
have realized that the success of the programs depends mainly on the teachers we have.
William joined us as San Rafael Hospitals English teacher two years ago. During this time he has been a very proficient teacher,
able to involve the students in learning English by utilising resources such as social networks. He considerably grew the number
of staff members who decided to join the program and take the official Trinity exams from levels to A2 to B2, which were passed
by all of them last year.
I am really satisfied with his performance and couldnt recommend him more highly. I am sure he is going to be as much an asset
to your company as he has been to ours.

Agustin Iniesta Bujan, Economist at San Rafael Hospital and TECS school Point of Contact (AIniesta@JMPascual.com)

Will was my English teacher at San Rafael hospital for the school years 2014/2015 and 2015/2016. In my view, he is by far the
best English teacher I have ever had. He always prepares his classes to combine fun and learning, making them enjoyable and
productive. He works hard for his students, which was illustrated by a 100% pass rate for his Trinity exam students in his first
year.

Mara Prncipe Vicente, Diagnostic Image Technician at San Rafael Hospital, Cadiz (MaraPrincipe@Gmail.com)

I would like to recommend Will as an English teacher for your business. He is well suited to your needs. Because of my job as a
doctor, he always devotes classtime towards specific medical vocabulary and help towards my clinical practice with patients, who
do not speak my language. He is very friendly, helpful and punctual. I highly recommend him.

Isabel Serrano Garcia, Ruematology Specialist at Universitario Puerta del Mar, Cadiz (IsabelSG231@Hotmail.com)

It is my great pleasure to write this letter in support of Mr. Horsmans application for your job.
Will instructed me for the C1 Trinity exam (GESE Level 11). He was unquestionably one of the most able teachers I have ever
had, and his work in class consistently reflected a level of insightfulness and attention to detail that is unique to himself. His
reports were always prepared on time, and he stood out for his eagerness to engage in the process of learning and discovery.
Additionally, he really managed to focus on the grammar required for the development of this exam, by carrying out both
meaningful activities and games that really led me to fulfil my main objectives.
In addition to his confidence and eagerness to teach he also made a good impression on me due to his pleasant personality.
I strongly believe he has the potential to be an outstanding teacher for your business. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more
information.

In his time here, Will had a good relationship with his colleagues and, most importantly, his students. A punctual and
conscientious worker, Will impressed the management with his willingness to learn and try new things. I have no hesitation in
giving a strong reference to Will and everyone at Kedaro International wishes him success in the future.

great passion and commitment. He established a wonderful rapport with his students while involving them in learning the
language. He was reliable and always worked with a very positive attitude it was a pleasure to work with him and I highly
recommend him for a teaching position.
