How can I improve my CV (for TEFL jobs)??? Important, super important!!?

Hi, I feel badly about asking complete strangers for such a huge favor, but I'm not pressuring anyone to help me. I'm asking because it means so much to me to get the job I'm searching for and I don't have anyone at home to look at my CV for me... my friends are all busy and I haven't told my parents I'm going to Mexico to teach English and they're going to be upset when they find out. I don't have any siblings who are willing to help me. I'd just like to know how I can improve my CV. I'm applying for TEFL jobs. Please no rude or mean comments... I'm already feeling badly because people have been rude and nasty to me all day. I live in a town called High Point and nearly everyone is hateful here. I changed my name, and the asterisks are there because I didn't want to put private information on the internet, so I took out private information (my address, where I go to church, etc.) and replaced it with asterisks. Thanks so much if you can help me. Here is my CV. I copied and pasted it so the formatting came out a bit wonky, I created it on Office Writer and it looked okay. Marjory Stewart-Baxter address: ************************** *************, North Carolina,USA ****** phone: (000) 000-0000 e-mail: ****************@hotmail.com sex: female date of birth: ************* nationality: USA citizen I recently earned my TESOL Trinity College Certificate and have additional classroom experience that I would like to employ in my teaching career.

Looks pretty good to me. The only thing as an employer I'd like to be clearer is the number of classroom hours you've taught at different levels.
