Meet Your Teacher

Hi,

I’m Debbie Kearney

Having lived in both the UK and Ireland I have a neutral accent that is easily understood. MY teaching journey started over 20 years ago and has taken me through public and private classrooms, working with large groups and small. I have come to realise my superpower lies in individual and small group coaching. I know this gives me the opportunity to react instinctively to the needs of my client.

I firmly believe that teaching methods are not one size fits all. We don’t all learn the same way. Some people learn better with conversational English, some people with role play and others prefer to practise language structure and grammar using written methods. Therefore, my teaching style adapts around the needs and abilities of my student and how they respond to different methods.

Our first meeting always explores your world and relationship with English in the workplace. What are your pain points? How can we move past them? I will learn what makes you tick and I will tailor my teaching around how you learn. Together we start to focus on the areas you need help with and create an outline of a course you can see working for you.

You are good at your job and I am very good at mine. I will help you analyse your weaknesses and I will devise a programme that will reinforce your strengths and find ways to minimise those weaknesses so you can shine in your professional life.
Building on the skills you learn with me and putting them in practice from the beginning, we will turbo charge your learning and give you full command of your professional skills.

English spoken by hotel staff is not regular, everyday English. It’s much more polite and formal, and there’s certain vocabulary that gets repeated a lot.
