I am available to teach in person in Sligo, Ireland or via Skype/FaceTime/Zoom for €20 per hour.

The first 60-minute class is always free

You can read about a typical English class with me here.

First 60 minute class is free

Then if you like the class you can take more classes, if not no problem!

In the free class we concentrate on speaking, so you can talk about your studies, job, your English studies, hometown, hobbies, why you want to study English, your goals, movies, music, the news etc.

For the first 40 minutes I will take notes on an MS Word document, then I will email you the document and then we can look at the notes, see what you did well, correct mistakes and make plans for future classes.

Exam preparation

I have extensive experience preparing students for IELTS and TOEFL exams.

In general students start classes about 3 months before their exam date.  We usually do 2 classes per week, 1 class of speaking, and 1 class on writing. You don't need a teacher to help you with reading and listening, you just practice those at home yourself. 

Classes tailor made to suit you

Customise your classes to suit your needs. Concentrate on everyday speaking, Business English, or prepare presentations and papers.

My own natural method is to concentrate on speaking, then based on this I can see what grammar needs to be taught and what errors need to be explained.

Job Interview Preparation

Prepare for and be comfortable with all styles of job interview. Practice talking about yourself,  your CV and also competency based techniques.

Proofreading

Have your CV, thesis, essay, presentation or website content checked by a native speaker to ensure no costly errors are present.
