My name is Paul, I am a native English speaker from Ireland, and I am 29 years old. I like cycling, running and learning the whistle. I also love exploring and travelling the world. If I didn't, I wouldn't be in Vietnam, where I live today!
I have been teaching English in a variety of environments for almost 1 year now, and I have enjoyed every minute! As such, I am willing to teach online to any students that want help with developing their skills in the English language. I can also have a more informal conversation if you just want to practice talking in the real world to a real speaker!

I am known as a very energetic teacher, that brings a lot of life to the classroom. I enjoy taking realia and encouraging questions about them. I am a fan of using English in practical, everyday scenarios, and colloquial use not usually seen in textbooks. That said, I can still create lessons catered to formal examinations, for use in writing and to improve vocabulary.
