Sobre mí

Hello, My name is Deirdre, but everyone calls me Dee. I'm from Ireland originally, and now I'm currently living in Japan. I have been working in the field of ELT since 2007. I have a love for all things of culture, and I am very interested on how languages, as a tool, play an important part in connecting everyone.
Over the last 12 years of teaching, I have gained experience in teaching conversational English, Business English, Cambridge Exam preparation and English for specific purposes (e.g. medical presentations, report writing, specific interviews). Currently I specialise in teaching English for Academic Purposes and preparation for the IELTS examination.
I am available on Verbling as a English language skills consultant/coach. This means my classes or sessions on Verbling are specifically aimed at people who are preparing for an interview, writing academic papers in English, developing specific English skills e.g. seminar or sales presentations. If you are looking for a professional English language consultant, please write me a message and let me know what it is you are working towards.
NOTE: I do not teach general English lessons online
