Hello, my name is Eileen. I am from Dublin, the capital of Ireland.
I have always been interested in languages. I went to Spain as a teaching assistant after university and realised that I really wanted to make English teaching my career. I love being a teacher – it has helped me to meet people from all over the world and learn about different cultures. It is never boring and there are lots of challenges!
I started by teaching international students in a university in Dublin – I learned a lot in that job and I enjoyed seeing Ireland through my students’ eyes. After that I worked in Spain for three years. I taught young learners and adults. I then moved to Jordan and stayed there for almost six years. That was a wonderful experience. When I was there I also trained teachers, travelled and worked in other Middle Eastern countries.
In 2009 I came to Lima, Peru and now it is my home. I have been involved in online teaching since 2010 – it is an amazing way to connect with people all over the world. I have taught groups of Spanish learners and one-to-one classes for Afghan women online – both excellent experiences. I do my best to personalise my classes and encourage my students. Feedback and correction are very important too. Language learning is fascinating to me and I believe anyone can do it.
