Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentences? Is it correct to say "no reason to be so unkind"?

I imagined a man asking an older woman to help her carry her bag upstairs. But woman brushed him aside and shouted at him.

The man said, "There is no reason to be so unkind."

Yes. It is correct to say "there is no reason to be so unkind."

I am not a teacher.

unkind is okay. Maybe rude is more appropriate in this situation.

Andrew, if you're going to quote a post in full, at least make improvements to it. We rarely need to read it all again.

You should use the definite article before "woman" in the second sentence.
