- Native english speaker from Ireland
- Barcelona, Barcelona
My name is Rory and I am a TEFL-qualified native english speaker from Ireland with 3 years’ teaching experience. I have a [url removed] in History from Trinity College Dublin, where I began teaching university students from diverse backgrounds and publishing academic texts. I spent a year in Vietnam teaching english to children of all ages.
I also spent three years as a Senior Recruitment Consultant in Financial Markets. I worked on and led large-scale consultation and recruitment campaigns with banks, insurance companies and asset managers, so I have a keen understanding of commercial business and its language.
I have recently moved to Barcelona after spending much of 2019 travelling South America, learning some Spanish and falling in love with latino culture. I use my academic and commercial background to create a sophisticated learning experience that is based on fun, self-expression and importantly students’ specific needs and interests.
My abiding passion outside of teaching is writing, both scholarly and creative. I wrote a chapter in the recent book “Judges, Politics and the Irish Constitution”, a study on modern Irish politics. I also write creatively, and am constantly working on short stories.
