Personal Description:

Hello my name is Alan. I am a 26 year old masters degree holder who after a period of travel is back in Cork. I have tutored undergraduate students in university on Political theory, philosophy as well as history. I am interested in playing the clarinet, exercising by going to the gym as well as managing to keep up to date on a long list o**Contact Detail Removed**s to read. I also enjoy the experience of travel having worked and lived in Taiwan as well as in Poland previously to that.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught English in Taiwan for a year as well as in Poland. In Taiwan I was responsible for teaching Kindergarten children for the most part. There I taught Maths, Science, art as well as English. It was a very interesting and rewarding experience. I also instructed the class on acting.
After a stint as a teacher in a kindergarten in Taiwan I moved to a busibann or in other words an elementary school there. The attitude required there was a compassionate and interested one. At the school I was also responsible for teaching the basic elements of English grammar and culture to some students who were a bit older and were aged 14 to 17. They had very little English for the most part and I was their vacation from the harsh and hard life of being a Taiwanese teenager. During my time as a university student I was also diligently aware of how to give tutorials, I gave private tutorials as needed to undergraduate students while I was a masters student.

Approach to Grinds:

My approach to giving grinds is first and foremost based on the ability of the student to read and comprehend the task and hand. Subsequently I aim to start at where they are, not where they were or even where they ought to be when teaching them. In that sense my aim is to give a form of tutorship designed around the needs of the individual rather than what they might actually want in a tutor. I also aim to focus on the kind of language the student uses, this is critical for just about every academic subject at every level. This is often forgotten by the process itself and by the actual overseers of every unique process.
