help for a newbie

Hi, I'm new to the game, and as you guys may see from my games, I'm pretty bad. I wanted some tips on how to improve, particulary in the brazillian draughts. I'm familiar with the rules, but I don't know anything about openings and the strategy of the game, so I always lose in a couple of moves. Any help it's appreciated.
