Interview and CV Coaching, Public Speaking and Written English

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
My name is Rory and I'm a native English speaker from Ireland. I'm an Interview and Academic Coach who specializes in preparing business professionals and students for interviews, presentations and written projects in English. After receiving my Ph.D from Trinity College Dublin, I worked as a Senior Financial Recruitment Consultant for a prominent Irish Recruitment company, before being selected to set up their FinTech Division in London's Canary Wharf.

In 2020 I moved to Spain, where I have been working with non-native clients who are preparing for interviews, meetings and presentations in English. I set up Cala Coaching in 2021 to offer tailored coaching plans in the areas of Interviews, CVs, Public Speaking and Written English.

About Me

Hi, I'm Rory from Ireland, although now I live in Barcelona, Spain. I love exploring new cultures: I spent 1 year in Vietnam before traveling around South America in 2019. I'm currently learning Spanish, so I know all about the excitement and nerves that go with learning a new language. I love to cook, especially since I turned vegan. I love literature and anything to do with modern art. I like to keep my classes fun, natural and based around your needs and preferences.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I am TEFL-qualified native English speaker from Ireland. I have a Ph.D. from Trinity College Dublin, where I began teaching university students from diverse backgrounds. I spent three years as a Senior Recruitment Consultant in Financial Markets. I worked on and led large-scale consultation and recruitment campaigns with banks, insurance companies and asset managers, so have a keen understanding of commercial business and its language. cultural environments. I have recently moved to Barcelona after spending much of 2019 traveling South America, learning some Spanish and falling in love with latino culture. I use my academic and commercial background to create a sophisticated learning experience that is also based on fun and self-expression.

Rory's a nice guy and came to our lesson prepared and with good ideas for things to work on. He helped me a lot and I will definitely be having more lessons in the future.
I highly suggest Rory. He's a really nice, patience and prepared teacher. He helps me to clean up my PhD thesis. It was really nice to work with him. I'm really happy about the final result!

English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students) + IELTS
I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

Xavier
English teacher. All levels and ages. Like teaching while learning.
Experience of more than 20 anys donant classes d'anglès i català a grups reduïts d'ESO i Batxillerat i classes de repàs in the sector de les Humanitats. I have been teaching English for many years. I have taught small groups and individuals for review (ESO and Bachillerato). I move. I am looking for stability and continuity for the entire course. Teaching is my vocation. In the mornings I work in a telemarketing company in BCN in a multicultural environment where English is our vehicular language and from 4pm I have availability. I am currently an English teacher at the English Studio Academy, in Cornellà de Llobregat in the afternoon shift. All levels and ages. I shuffle the possibility of dedicating myself to teaching also in the morning, as long as the offer for this time is of interest to me. In the afternoon shift I am autonomous. I am looking for stability and continuity in the Academy or similar for the entire course and in the summer. My name is Xavier. I was born in Barcelona ... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, ... not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Phillsofy , History and English for a long time ... since I was 16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much ... and the UK, ... but I don't have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes? And here I am. English Studio, Academy of English in Barcelona, where I used to be a teacher until Covid 19 knocked at the door of our lives, and teachers and students had to be at home. Professional Objective: English teacher.   Morning shift: Professional experience More than 15 years in several Contact Centers as an Agent or as a Team Leader or Supervisor.

And last but not least, every day monitoring work, keeping an eye on the activity of premium learners, ensuring the team was taking the necessary proactive action, either by phone or email. I had to support very often other colleagues in accordance with business needs and to share ideas to improve business practices and the quality of the service.

ESP - Hola, soy Lucie y me encantaría ayudarte a aprender inglés, que sea principiante más avanzado. Me encanta hacer mis estudiantes hablar porque pienso que la práctica es el segredo para aprender un idioma o mejorar tu conocimiento. Siempre organizo mis clases por temas inspirados en la vida cotidiana (como presentarse, como hacer una cita, ir de compras, una cita con el medico, inglés profesional, etc.). Haremos ejercicios de gramática, vocabulario y de pronunciación. Se tienes el nível intermedio, haremos clases con artigos para que puedas hablar. Así pondremos la gramática y el vocabulario en práctica. Y pueda dar clases in español (o portuñol). EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn English, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping / grocery, going to the doctors, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be happy to help you learn English, whether it's from scratch or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to present myself, how to make an appointment, to go shopping, to go to the doctor, English at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice.

Asher
Maths + Personal Development + Wellbeing: helping every student achieve their own personal greatness
Every student needs assistance to rebound after the pandemic and lockdowns. I have the expertise to get students back on track. I have tutored students from the most prestigious schools in the country as well as students internationally. Some of the students I have worked with have attended world renowned institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard & MIT. I have delivered talks at schools on student success and have authored four books on topics such as productivity, time-management, self-discipline & confidence. I have founded the first online personal development academy for teenagers (Nexgen Teens) based around a holistic approach to learning called The Nexgen Method which I created. I also create wellbeing & mental health resources for young people at schools and universities. My role is not only in preparing students for the future but it is giving them the confidence to shape it. My objective is to inspire, motivate and cultivate ambitious young students who have the ability to identify and fulfil their aspirations. I combine five interlinked components that, if worked on in tandem, can drastically change a students life for the better and aid them in becoming the pioneers of the future. These 5 strands are: 1) Mindset 2) Wellbeing Management 3) Study Skills 4) Life Skills 5) Leadership Development I place a special emphasis on personal development and this is what makes me different. I believe it is possible to equip students with the mindset and skillset to radically alter their lives for the better. Academic tuition is essential because all students learn at a different pace and some may feel intimidated by the thought of asking questions in class. Therefore, some pupils often get left behind and spend the whole academic year desperately trying to catch up. When a pupil approaches education with the preconceived notion that they are not bright enough then this makes academic success neigh on impossible. Therefore, I make it my first aim to instil confidence in all students. After this, great academic strides can be made. It is insufficient to just teach students the ideas and concepts they are dealing with at any given time. My instruction goes beyond this by including study skills such as note-taking, memory improvement techniques, speed-reading, and effective revision into its program. These skills will stay with pupils and enlighten their entire academic tenure. Finally, my role is also about offering guidance to students in terms of their current issues, academic future and potential career paths. My educational system is a result of years of lessons I myself learned progressing through the academic arena all the way to university level. In addition, it encompasses all the research I have conducted in self-improvement, effective study skills and successful leadership. These methods have been tested and proven successful. I hope to impart this knowledge to the next generation and watch them do great things with it. I am confident in improving the grades of every student I work with with a tailored academic plan. Yours sincerely, Ash

English, French, Catalan and Spanish; school support, learn at your own pace.
Notions and advanced content of the subject, according to level. You will learn to organize your study time for a better learning of the subject we are dealing with. It is about supporting the knowledge acquired and not understood in class, not to torment the student, and not to learn or with private lessons.

Alzbeta
Take your English or German to the next level with me!
"One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way." I am an absolute language enthusiast, who is as well lucky to pursue her greatest hobby at the university - I study to become a teacher of both English and German. I specialize in teaching mostly through conversation, during which I as well explain the main principles of grammar. Why so? I do not want my students to be overwhelmed by grammar and only get a minor option to speak and use what they just learned. This way of teaching as well allows me (and my students) to get to know each other better, which I find important. I prefer eye to eye lessons to the ones through Skype, as I believe that it makes a great difference when you know your language partner in person, not only through a laptop screen. Do not hesitate to contact me, I am looking forward to meeting you!
