|Adult / Casual||€35.00|
I hold a BA, MA and PhD in English and have over 4 years experience tutoring and teaching at university level as well as delivering high quality grinds to second level students.
I have over 4 years experience delivering creative and engaging specialised seminars and tutorials to university students, especially those who have just come from 6th year. I have extensive administrative experience, including marking essays and exams, organising conferences and updating student records.
I have delivered one-to-one and group tutorials to junior and leaving certificate students. I also have experience as a freelance editor on projects such as undergraduate and masters dissertations.
My passion is for English literature of all kinds, with a particular interest in poetry, drama, comprehension and critical theory. I have presented my research at both national and international conferences, including at University of Oxford, Queens University, and University of Dundee. I have recently been published in the Oxford Research in English Journal. I also have a keen interest in creative writing, and was awarded 'Best New Writing' by UCC Drama Society for a play I wrote in 2010.
I have lead tutorials for First Year English students, engaging with a wide array of texts from Old, Medieval and Renaissance literature, to Modern Drama, Poetry and Fiction. I have corrected take-home assignments, class tests, presentations, while also offering comprehensive and detailed feedback on submitted work and encouraging a productive contribution from all students.
I have designed and lead specialised seminars on poetry for second year students at UCC, and was responsible for setting coursework, assignments, class tests, and presentation schedules.
Approach to Grinds:
Each grind is one hour in duration, and has a no nonsense approach.
The first is used to get to know specific needs of student and to design subsequent grinds around those needs (I am happy to have parent/guardian sit in for part of this to understand structure of grinds). My focus is on covering as much ground as possible during each hour-long grind.
I provide a progress review sheet at the end of each grind to help monitor material covered and to enable student to focus on specific areas.
I am used to catering to specific needs of individual students. I also teach exam technique and best practice in preparing for and undertaking exams. I offer comprehensive and detailed feedback on questions arising in class or via email. Aspects of this include may include proofreading, rearranging, supervising and advising.
