  • Volunteer Hello

I am a retired teacher in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am willing to help with English grammar, syntax, flow, context and idea development.

I may be contacted at vince.dumond@gmail.com if you would like my help with editing.

I noticed a tiny error with your introduction. The section "Tunisia,Where will create a class to study wikipedia For students aged 15 to 18" should read 'Tunisia, where we will create a class to study wikipedia For students aged 15 to 18'

I look forward to hearing from you.
