Welcome to Free Spirit English! We’re Dara and Jessica, two English language teachers from Ireland. We have a passion for sharing tips and videos to help you on your journey towards English mastery.
In an increasingly globalized world, fluency in the English language can be a huge advantage in life, work, and study.
Building your English language skills may open the door to many new opportunities and experiences. You may even find it gives you more freedom to follow your dreams!
Hi, I’m Jessica, but you can call me Jess or Jesse for short! I manage this site and create content for our social media channels alongside my partner, Dara.
I’ve been an English language teacher for about 12 years. I’ve helped hundreds of students to develop their English language skills both on and offline.
Travel is one of my greatest passions. I love exploring the world and meeting people from different countries and cultures. That’s just one of the reasons I’ve found teaching English to be so rewarding!
I was born in Canada and grew up in Ireland. Since then, I’ve lived in England, South Korea, Spain, and China. I’ve also visited Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Switzerland, Portugal, France, Italy, and Cambodia. But there are still so many amazing places I’d love to see!
One of my greatest joys in life is wandering through the streets with my Nikon camera. I’m always in search of a hidden gem like a quirky art studio or an old bookstore. I’m also a huge fan of live music, and I just love to dance!
Hi everyone, I’m Dara! I’m a CELTA certified native English teacher from Ireland. I have 15 years’ experience teaching students in colleges and universities in Europe and Asia.
I’ve taught courses on general English, conversation, business English, academic writing, academic speaking, presentation, British culture, and English literature. I’ve also facilitated workshops in email writing, poetry analysis, teaching methodology, and using technology in the classroom.
Music is one of my greatest passions (craft beer is another!). When I’m not teaching, I spend my time singing and playing the guitar and piano. I perform an eclectic mix of musical styles. I’m strongly influenced by traditional Irish folk music, blues, rock, reggae, and soul.
On my travels around Europe and Asia, I’ve played at numerous pubs, beach resorts, and music festivals. I’ve also completed a project called 365 Songs in 365 Days where I recorded and uploaded a song every day! You can check out my music on Youtube here.
We hope Free Spirit English will help you on your journey towards English language fluency.
