    How to qualify your work

    Hi there!

    I've got this sentence about how well somebody has been working, but it sounds to me that the end of the sentence could be improved. Any suggestions?

    Well, you know I am here for a year now, and working very good...

    Cheers,
    Tito

    Well, you know I have been here for a year and working very well.
    I am not a teacher.

    It's an odd sentence.

    That's ambiguous; it could imply that you will be in that place for a year.

    Do you mean working very hard?
    I say that because "working (very) well" is normally used to describe objects. For example,
    The washing machine has been working very well since it was repaired last month.

    I would say am working or have been working.
