This is how 2 referees rated Andrew:
I am a student from Kildare Town, offering grinds in leaving cert Applied Maths, Physics, Maths,JC Science and JC Maths.
I am currently in Fourth year of Mathematical Science in University College Cork, with modules in Maths, Applied Maths, Physics and Statistics. I have a First Class Honours and the title of College Scholar.
For my Leaving Cert; I received H1s in Applied Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and Maths amounting to a total of 613 CAO points.
Due to the current self-isolation situation, personal tutoring sessions will not be possible. So, all sessions will now be online; I make sure that the quality of the sessions aren't affected by this by using the video conferencing application, zoom, where I can talk to the students and write notes in Real-Time just like a personal session.
●I have been tutoring the above Leaving Cert subjects since I left school in 2017.
●During first year of College I was involved in study seminars.
●I have been giving summer tutoring sessions for College Students who wish to sit repeat exams since 2018.
Approach to Grinds:
My Approach to grinds varies from student to student, But in General, my approach is as follows:
●I will ask the student what area they are struggling with e.g Trigonometry.
●I will then explain some simple theory and go through some easy problems in the topic.
●Once I feel like the student has a good grasp on the subject, I will move on to explain more difficult theory followed by more difficult problems.
●If there is enough time and I am happy with how well the student understands the topic, I move onto exam questions.
I write structured notes in front of the student and explain them as I go, when the grind is finished, the student takes the notes home with them.
When in the video conference, it is possible to share my screen from my iPad to the call (The student can see my face, hear me talking as I explain the notes and see the screen of my iPad) where I write the notes in Real-Time. After the Session is over, I e-mail the notes as a pdf file to the student.
