    First of all thank you so much for providing this opportunity. It's a great pleasure to introduce myself to you.

    Try something more like this:
    Thank you very much for the opportunity to speak to you. I'm really excited to talk to you about the position.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
