    Dermot O'Brien

    Hi everyone! My name is Dermot and I am from Ireland. Since I was very young I’ve loved reading and writing, which is one of the reasons that led me to develop a passion for the English language. Although I am a musician and my dream would be to make a career out of that some day, teaching English has always been a part of my life. I love learning new things and I’ve always found that teaching, in most cases, is as valuable an experience for the teacher as it is for the students. In the past I’ve dabbled in the fields of philology and philosophy, where the intricacies of human learning and knowledge acquisition really piqued my interest; so upon learning about Kids&Us and the methodology, I knew this was the place for me. It will be my first year here as a teacher, and I’m tremendously excited to embark on this journey with all of you!
