    Conversational and Written English, including Public Speaking and Interview Preparation

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    I am a TEFL-qualified native English speaker from Ireland, who specialises in Conversational and Business English. I also have a Ph.D. in History and spent years teaching at Trinity College Dublin before working for 3 years as a recruitment consultant helping candidates find their perfect job. I use my professional experience to guide students through unique challenges, such as; making presentations in English, improving their written English, CV writing and preparing for an interview in English. Whatever your specific English requirements are, I can assist.

    I practice the "Dogme Teaching Method", which focuses classes on the students' specific needs and interests, rather than spending time on irrelevant grammar or language that the student will not use.

    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.

    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.

    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!

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.

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.

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.

    History, Political Science, Essay writing, Test Prep Tutoring
    Having worked in an alternative school, my approach is very much based on the understanding and ways of learning of each student. Rather than imposing a specific method on the student I try and understand how they work, how they understand the subject and what the university or school requires of them, and help them improve in the areas needed. I specialize in tutoring History and Political Science for school (iGCSE, A-LEVEL, IB) and university (Bachelors). I teach both content and form (essay writing and exam prep skills).
