Elish Ahern

6th Spanish

Hi, I’m Eilish Ahern and I’ve been working in a secondary school and teaching both Spanish and Irish to all levels level for many years.  I also previously taught Spanish at both GCSE and A Levels in England and taught English at a University in Spain for four years.

The bulk of my school timetable is made up of Spanish and therefore I have a lot of experience in this field and more importantly it’s what I absolutely love doing. I understand that learning a language is a time consuming and sometimes tricky task but with encouragement and support and commitment you can make progress in a very enjoyable way.

I worked for the State Exams Commission for many years as an examiner of the oral content of the Leaving Cert exam and this experience has given me the opportunity to prepare students to achieve the best grade they are capable of.

I have also marked Leaving Cert exams at Higher Level. This experience has given me an understanding of the marking system which I can help you to navigate with ease.

I look forward to working with you.
