Hello there , I´m Declan, a native and qualified English teacher from Ireland. I am a Celta (Cambridge) qualified English teacher and I hold an honours Business degree with the University of London International School.
I have been teaching English for over 12 years both online and in schools helping students from all over the world improve their English. I am currently teaching English in Mexico City and have previously taught English in Madrid, Spain and my home city of Dublin, Ireland.
In my conversation classes I help students improve fluency and become more confident using the language. Error correction is essential! I correct any mistakes and work in an encouraging and supportive way to help reach objectives. I try to choose topics that are fun and engaging and always make sure that the student does most of the speaking!
IELTS, FCE, CAE are exams that I have helped lots of students get the result they needed. The speaking, use of English and writing questions are the focus in these classes. I also suggest useful vocabulary and provide material for students.
Whatever aspect of English you need to improve from beginners to advanced I can HELP you in a fun and relaxed learning environment.
Structured grammar classes
New vocabulary and phrasal verbs
When I am not teaching wonderful students I enjoy spending my time doing sports and keeping fit. I also like music and love mixing electronic music.
When you book a trial lesson we discuss your objectives and do some speaking exercises to check your level of English so I can then formulate a plan for your classes.
