I am a qualified TEFL teacher
, with certificates in Teaching English as a second language (ESL,) Teaching ESL online
and Teaching ESL to Young Learners
I hold a Bachelor of Arts (hons) in English and History from UCD. I am also a poet and writer, published in a variety of magazines, anthologies, E-zines and other media. I have led Creative Writing groups, given many poetry readings, and have facilitated writing and poetry presentations.
I love language, and would love to help you enjoy English.
I offer one on one teaching sessions, 40 mins for €12 (pay as you go) or a block of 5 lessons for €10 each (€50 for 5 lessons paid in advance.) I include a free
taster lesson - 20 mins free chat to see if you would enjoy learning with me.
I am happy to tailor lessons to your needs - many students can read English well, but need to improve their conversational English, or listening skills. Others need help understanding business terms, lecture notes, or wish to concentrate on a specific area. Together we can make a plan that will help improve your English.BOOKING
For many students, online lessons are the most convenient. See available hours and book here.
I am happy to conduct lessons in person too.
I am available to teach in Dublin 2 (city centre) I recommend meeting in a cafe and practicing English in a real life conversational setting, for those who need to improve their receptive skills.See available hours and book here.
Also, I have limited time slots available for one on one teaching in private in Dublin 12. See available hours and book here.
In all settings, we can work on general understanding of English, including grammar and vocabulary with exercises in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Or we can work on specific areas you need to improve. I am happy to look over course work and proofread for errors, or help with composing emails and letters.
