My name is Aaron.I recently completed a Bachelors Degree in Physics at UCC.
I've always had a passion for teaching and maths. In 2018 I decided I wanted to help Junior and Leaving Cert students improve their mathematics, and I started teaching grinds alongside my college work. I did this for 2 years, until Covid. Now, I want to start helping people with maths again.
November 2018 - March 2020
I worked as a Grinds teacher from home, where I taught Junior and Leaving Certificate Mathematics at all levels. My students came to my home for 1 or 2 hour sessions, once a week, where we first recapped the previous session before either diving deeper into the current topic or swapping to a new topic.
October 2020 - May 2021
I worked as a Laboratory Demonstrator in University College Cork, where I overlooked first year students doing experimental physics modules. As part of this, I assessed and graded lab reports, providing students with feedback on how to improve at lateral thinking, experimental calculations and report writing.
Approach to Grinds:
I have a student - oriented approach to teaching.
During my time giving grinds, I found that my students had different levels of knowledge in the subject. I spend the first few sessions I have with my students gauging their level of understanding, interest and intuition in the subject, and I then adjust my teaching style and methods accordingly. This may mean changing the speed at which I teach, changing the level of complexity of ideas, using audio or visual metaphors, or many of these examples at the same time.
When I teach, I like to give my students a portion of control of the lesson - Setting the pace, deciding the topic of the lesson. I like to challenge my students to come to conclusions without my help, and I like to promote critical and logical thinking.
