Who is Teaching

Patrick circle new

Patrick Winters

My name is Patrick and I have been teaching at ACET since 2013. I have been an English teacher for four years and previously taught in Ecuador, Canada and Australia. I love teaching because it gives me the opportunity to meet so many interesting people and learn about an array of cultures and places. I enjoy all sports especially cycling, running and Capoeira - a Brazilian martial art. If I need to relax I like reading, cooking and gardening.
