    Please see the amendments I made to your post with regard to capitalisation, spacing and the indefinite article.

    1. As well as being a pilot, I am a paraglider and a tourist guide.
    2. I'm an English teacher.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    We don't really use the phrase "tourist guide" but if we did, it would mean something different.

    A tour guide is the person in charge of a tour (a trip or journey somewhere).
    A tourist guide would help tourists but there might not be any travel involved. They might simply direct people to tourist sights in a particular town, for example.

    Re: correct me please

    According to the context, shouldn't the word be "sites?"
