Hello. My name is Eamonn and I am an English teacher from Ireland. I have a degree in English and History, as well as a TEFL Certificate; and I also have a Graduate Certificate in Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Enterprise. I have over twenty years of experience as an English teacher; and I have taught English in both France and Ireland.
While I have specialized in Business English, I have also taught General English, I have helped to prepare people for examinations in English, and I have taught grammar to prospective teachers on a TEFL certification course.
I employ the communicative approach to language teaching, which targets the use of certain language - and emphasizes getting your message across as opposed to total accuracy. That said, I believe that a teacher should be able to correct errors in an unobtrusive way, and deal with any other issues that may arise in a concise and lucid manner that doesn't interfere unduly with the overall communicative flow. Above all, I believe that my role as teacher is to act as a facilitator: in other words, it is my job to assist the learning process in whatever way I can.
If you think that my qualifications and experience are such that I may be able to help you, then don't hesitate to get in touch.
