My name is Vania. I live in West London. I've been working for over five years as a carer. In my spare time I enjoy meeting my friends for coffee, going shopping. I like cooking. I like being with my son as well, taking him out, going to the parks. I like watching TV as well. I like music, listening to music and surfing the net, finding out about interesting things and places and countries. I have many years of experience as a carer. I worked for nearly three years at a nursing home in Scotland, then I moved to London and worked again nearly three years as a private carer.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Vania for more than twenty years. During the years of our acquaintance, I have known her in many capacities. She has been a multimedia assistant in a language school learning centre. Her responsibilities involved helping ESL children and adolescents to develop their learning skills to become more independent learner and consequently become more fluent within the English language. She has also been my trainee student, and assisted me with the many tasks required to run a language school. More recently, she has spent time in the classroom and has turned out to be a very successful teacher. Vania is an intelligent, capable, dedicated, and responsible woman. She is always quick on her feet, with sensible reactions in all the circumstances I've seen her in. I feel confident in saying that she is capable of handling any situation with thoughtfulness and maturity.
