I have had three lessons, and I can say with certainty that Sarah is an excellent teacher of Irish. Off the bat, she creates a comfortable environment. She also demonstrates that’s she’s invested in helping you along the learning journey. That’s really underrated, but important - especially since the classes are remote. I’m starting close to square one, and her approach is meant to arm me to the hilt with words and phrases that I will need to become conversant as soon as possible. She has developed tons of material, but it never feels like I’m on some kind of student assembly line, because she always goes at my pace and she always tailors the material to me. I intend to continue lessons indefinitely on a weekly basis with Sarah, and I recommend that you do as well.

Sorcha is a friendly , knowledgeable and encouraging teacher. As an adult learner , one of my biggest issues is with actually speaking the Irish that I do have . Sorcha politely prompts me to go back to Gaeilge when I slip back into using English. When I make mistakes , Sorcha will gently inform me of the correct structure that I should have used , without making me feel like a fool. It’s a skill that not all teachers have and along with simple , constructive lesson plans and some homework , makes Sorcha a great choice no matter what level your Irish is at. I’d recommend Sorcha as a teacher and I’m sure she’ll help you with your language journey , on top of that you’ll have met a genuinely nice person , it’s a win win really !

Sorcha is really supportive and encouraging in class, making it as easy as possible to chat and and get experience speaking Irish.

Sorcha is a first rate teacher who moves a lesson along at a good pace providing guidance and introducing new concepts at the appropriate times. She makes the lessons challenging enough to encourage progress but not so much that it seems overwhelming - a good balance is achieved every time.

Sorcha was easy to talk to and informative. I feel that I understand more about the Irish language in the 30 minutes we worked together than I learned on my own with an app. Thank you. I look forward to my next lesson.

Another great lesson with Sorcha - she is so consistent in her approach that it really makes the lessons an absolute pleasure.
