My name is Fergal and I am an TESOL and TEFL-qualified teacher of English from Ireland. My country is a beautiful, green country with lots of friendly people and a strong tradition of music, culture, and history.
I graduated from University College Cork in Ireland with a degree in English and History and then a Masters in History (focusing on Australian history).
I later qualified as a TEFL and TESOL teacher to attain formal training in how to teach speakers of English as a second language.
I love English and try to help my students learn and love the language as much as I do.
After graduating from university I joined the largest bank in Ireland and worked there for two years before moving to London in 2000 to begin a career in recruitment. In banking and recruitment you develop strong communication skills, especially listening skills. You try hard to understand what people need and help them to achieve their goals and dreams.
I moved to the Philippines in 2011 and began teaching English to Japanese students at the start of 2012. My students have included 4 year-olds right up to 70 year-olds. Everyone can learn!
Actually, I did teach before I came to the Philippines. When I was in university I tutored university students and during the summer holidays I used to teach English to students at a school in Spain.
I’ve hugely enjoyed tutoring children and adults from all over Japan and helping them develop their English skills. However, I think I've learned just as much from my students about Japan, its culture, and customs. I’m grateful for this opportunity.
My students tell me that I'm friendly and patient and that they can improve at their own pace. If you want to learn then I think I can help you.
My aim is to improve my students’ level of English. If you would like to improve your listening skills, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, or just generally then I want to work with you!
Everyone can improve, whether they are beginners, moderate speakers, or advanced learners. I would love to help you improve your English in a fun and enjoyable way.
Let's learn some English!
PLEASE NOTE: I am unable to teach complete beginners, unfortunately.
