Information About Claire - Lanesborough-Ballyleague tutor
This is how a referee rated Claire:
Hi my name is Claire. I am a fully qualified primary school teacher. I hold a Bachelor of Arts and Children Studies, majoring in Irish and History which I completed in NUIG. In addition to this, I completed my Professional Masters in Education (Primary) in NUIM as part of the Froebel Department.
I have a keen interest in working with children to help those who may be finding school work difficult but also those who want to be challenged more academically.
I have 3 years teaching experience to date. I can provide grinds in any subject for children aged 4-12 as well as Irish up to Leaving Certificate.
I have a vast experience working with children a various ages and levels. I have taught children of all ages in primary school with particular experience with 2nd-6th class. Throughout my teaching career I have taught and provided extra support to children with varying special educational needs.
Approach to Grinds:
My approach to grinds would begin to see where your child is at in the specific subject. I will then plan to have an in depth discussion to discuss what they are finding challenging and what they would like to achieve. This will help me inform what lessons we can cover and plan around the areas identified.
I aim to build their confidence and using various methods of teaching keep the learning engaging for the student also.
I feel that for lessons for primary aged children lessons should be made as interactive as possible with a mix of direct teaching, games and activities. For Junior and Leaving Certificate grinds, I would be placing more emphasis on their examinations.
The use of assessment is also key to my teaching, predominately assessment for learning to see what has been achieved and will inform my planning again for the following lessons. For Junior and Leaving Certificate students I would be looking at the use of exam papers as a means of assessment also.
I can also help with homework or assignments that your child may be finding difficult.
