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.

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.

English for Kids Play & learn: Role plays, songs, games, crosswords. Classes to expand vocabulary and familiarize yourself with English phonetics through games, songs ... I offer English reinforcement classes to Primary, Secondary and Baccalaureate students. My classes are well structured, in them the student learns to read, write, listen and speak, always, in a real context. I combine different types of activities and materials so that the class is enjoyable and the student feels comfortable. I believe that each student has his own learning rhythm and must be respected. With a good teacher everyone can reach their goal. I have been teaching for more than 5 years and my students obtain very good results.

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.

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.

Self-Esteem & Resilience Building Program - Leading to Better Grades, Better Mental Health & Better Future Prospects
A step-by-step tuition program that: Builds self-esteem Increases resilience Improves wellbeing Improves communication Improves study skills Resources provided include: -Mentoring -3D animation videos to explain concepts -Worksheets -Other supplementary materials This program has been turned into a workshop and will be delivered at both Oxford and Cambridge universities for first year students. 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. 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. Yours sincerely, Ash

Exam Prep for Science and Maths. English Tutoring.
As an experienced and qualified teacher of Science, Maths, and English I offer two different sets of classes. I have taught in high schools in Ireland for three years and before that I completed a degree in Medicinal Chemistry. English as Second Language Learning another language is a difficult process and at different times your needs will vary. At times more focus on grammar and vocabulary is needed to help you reach the next level of understanding. At other times a focus on pronunciation and conversation is needed to enhance your fluency. At this class the teaching will be adaptive to your needs and we can set common goals together. Science and Maths Preparing to undergo exams can be daunting and it is much better to keep up with your class as opposed to falling behind and trying to catch up while under pressure right before your exam. In this class we will go over what you are learning at the minute on your course as well as looking forward to the next topics so that you are prepared when your teacher introduces it in class. This will avoid feeling lost moment that happens when new topics are introduced and will help you get the most out of your teachers instructions.

Sophie
Qualified English Tutor with level 5 TEFL qualification
I have a level 5 TEFL qualification and have been practicing teaching lessons in various ways and through various methods. I find the best way to teach a new concept in English is to make the lessons engaging through primarily conversing in English and practicing grammar and pronunciation in a more interesting way, through games, role plays, listening activities and so on. I would therefore aim to make the lessons interesting and targeted at specific parts of the English language that students would like to work on.
