Hello! My name is Deirdre, but you can call me Dee! Thank you for visiting my profile today. I am a native English speaker from the west of Ireland. I started teaching English in 2007 when I was travelling around the world. I fell in love with this career and went on to complete my Masters in Teaching English & Applied Linguistics in 2012. Since then I have been working with adults one-to-one and in groups in third level colleges and universities in classrooms and online. Further information is available in my resume below. The classes I teach on Verbling are:

In my classes:

- I can help you with the pronunciation of sounds and words that are challenging by using the IPA and identifying other aspects of phonology.
- I use a wide range of materials and sources, from accredited course books to specialised self-developed learning aids.
- My main objective is to help you develop effective communication skills in the English language.

When you study with me, you will have:
- free language level placement test.
- access to an online bank of self-study materials to compliment your classes.
- links to a blog with downloadable notes.
- decks to learn vocabulary and idioms.
- interesting and up-to-date blog articles to read about developing your English language skills.
