Hakkımda

Hello,
I am available on Verbling as a English language skills consultant/coach. My classes on Verbling are specifically aimed at professional people (interview preparation, presentation skills etc.) academic students (writing academic papers, proofreading and feedback, research skills, academic presentation and seminar practice) and IELTS candidates (writing tasks 1 and 2, speaking exam practice, and listening and reading skills and practice).

NOTE: I do not teach general English or children's classes online. If you are looking for conversational and error correction classes only, please contact me to discuss cheaper rates.

My trial classes are general introduction classes only and do not cover the above skills.

A little bit about me: I'm from Ireland originally, and now I'm currently living in Japan. I have been working in the field of ELT since 2007. I have a love for all things of culture, and I am very interested on how languages, as a tool, play an important part in connecting everyone.
Over the last 12 years of teaching, I have gained experience in teaching conversational English, Business English, Cambridge Exam preparation and English for specific purposes (e.g. medical presentations, report writing, specific interviews). Currently I specialise in teaching English for Academic Purposes and preparation for the IELTS examination.
