Personal Description:

Hello, my name is Ciarán. I am a final year neuroscience student studying in University College Cork. I am passionate about life sciences, sport and the French language. I achieved an A in higher level French and B1's in biology and chemistry in the 2016 leaving certificate examinations. Currently maintaining a 1.1 average for Biological sciences in my degree.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a range of teaching experience in both French and Biology.

I have worked in Griffith College Cork for Education First; a private international English language teaching company where I helped French, Spanish and Russian children learn English through classes, cultural trips and team building exercises. I also regularly assist family members who are currently completing their senior cycle education.

I have participated in PAL (peer assisted learning) in UCC. This is a scheme which aims to help first year STEM students adapt to learning science at university level.

Approach to Grinds:

I believe building a friendly, growth-orientated environment is key for learning.
A brief initial assessment of the student's current level will first be carried out to identify strengths and areas that require work.

For biology, I believe understanding is essential at both leaving certificate and university levels. Focus will be placed on logically deducing answers to problems as opposed to wrote learning alone. In my experience, this technique benefits both immediate results and long term appreciation of the subject.

For French, I place a strong emphasis on the oral and aural components of the course as this may be an area of difficulty for some students. Conjugation, syntax and composition are also comprehensively covered.
On a side note, I have sat the leaving certificate twice as I chose to repeat after narrowly missing out on my desired course the first time around. Therefore, I may offer particular help to students who are in the same situation with the various problems that repeating the leaving cert brings!
