Language Learning Coach- Learn how to learn a language, use it with ease and have great conversations

“I feel stuck”

These words I hear again and again, from beginners to advanced.

The majority of students who come to me are frustrated.

They spent many years studying languages at school. They’ve spent both their time and lots of money.

Only to find themselves still struggling to form a sentence. Still struggling to be able to understand a native speaker.

If you’re here then I’m assuming you share some of these same struggles.

You get confused trying to memorize grammar rules, remember vocabulary, and makes sentances. You don’t know how to learn every day. You get distracted and then you feel too tired to keep going.

Believe it or not, I’ve been there too and to be honest, it sucks


to have another language is to possess a second soul
Charlemage


Now, I want you to trust me on your language journey

Imagine finally knowing exactly what to do when you sit at your desk to learn a language.

Imagine knowing how to learn grammar, how to remember vocabulary and make it stick, how to speak, and how to write beautiful sentences.
Imagine going on holiday somewhere and interacting with locals. Laughing, eating, dancing and living life in a different language.

You can trust Simon with your eyes closed! He managed to motivate and help my 16 year old son in his learning of English. Based on my son's tastes, he helps him feel more comfortable speaking and works with him on grammar through exercises adapted to him. Simon invested a lot of time to enable my son to progress by sending him appropriate sheets to repeat every day between each lesson. All this kindness helps my son to motivate himself even more to learn a language which at the beginning was not easy for him. Call Simon, you will not be disappointed! My son loves his lessons...and believe me it was not easy...

Learn European Portuguese with me! Private classes tailored to your needs and pace.
Hi! If you want to learn Portuguese of Portugal I can help you with that! I offer classes that are tailored to your needs, pace and interests! I teach about pronunciation, grammar, expressions/sayings, culture and more. I use exercises, books, games and presentations in order to create an interactive, fun and easy way to learn the language. I also try to include Portuguese in conversations as much as possible, since the best way to learn a new language is to listen to it! Portuguese belongs to the group of Romance languages and it's one of the most spoken in the world! It has many similarities with Spanish but also a twist that makes it so interesting and different at the same time. If you're interested in learning Portuguese, no matter if just out of curiosity or to become fluent, join me in this journey!

Private French lessons for adults and teenagers with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!
