Personal Description:

I am a primary teacher with a maths degree.
While I give primary school maths grinds, I specialize in junior cert (all levels) and ordinary level leaving cert maths grinds. I have given leaving cert higher level grinds, but while I am studying myself, this takes too much of my time so choose not to take on these pupils this year.
I graduated from Mary Immaculate College with a B. Ed degree and B.A degree in Mathematics in 2013 (both honours) and completed a Masters of Education with Trinity College in 2016.
I have a passion for teaching primary school children and have a fun and active approach to learning.
My primary teaching job really helps with giving secondary school maths grinds as I am able to access every pupils level of understanding and able to bring them on.

Tutoring Experience:

Primary School:
I am currently teaching 6th class in a permanent position. I've taught 4th, 5th and 6th class and am taking 1st class in September. I've taken pupils from all levels of primary school for grinds over te last 6 years.

Secondary School Maths:
I have given grinds to over thirty junior and leaving cert maths pupils in the past four years - higher, ordinary and foundation leveled students. I'm currently not taking leaving cert higher level, but all others.

Piano Lessons:
I am a very skilled piano player who has completed 8 grades with the Royal Irish Academy of Music. I currently perform for weddings and funerals with a talented singer friend of mine. I have been giving piano lessons for the last six years to pupils of all ages.

Special Needs:
I have completed July Provision tuition with a child with profound autism in July 2014. I have travelled to London to get experience with children with severe physical disabilities. I have previously tutored a child who missed a lot of days in school due to a severe illness and adapted my lessons to suit such a fragile mentality to school in his sickness. Fortunately, this child is doing very well now.

Extras:
I’ve taught English in an Italian summer camp for two years running and Science in a summer camp in NUIG. I’ve set up a summer camp in our own school in Rathangan and ran it to perfection. I have ran talent shows and given free music lessons for our school band in the last few years.

Approach to Grinds:

Primary School Grinds:
I take on a very active approach to teaching primary school children. This is based on the National Primary School Curriculum which emphasises child-centred, active learning. I have become skilful at implementing an active approach since I started studying for the Masters in Education in September 2014. I listen to parents’ concerns and tackle areas of difficulty primarily. For example, if the child struggles with literacy, I address this difficulty primarily in all of the different lesson activities – for example, comprehension, blending or segmentation of words or phonemes, fluency development… Likewise, I pinpoint areas of difficulty in maths and find ways to address these as my main focus to every lesson. Discount available for two days a week.

Secondary School Maths:
Very thorough with maths grinds, explaining in detail where necessary and moving directly to areas of difficulty. Uses very good explanations and diagrams to grasp understanding of foundations. I spend a lot of time creating and gathering the best quality of notes in my ability.

Piano Lessons:
Very friendly and fun manner towards learning to play the piano and in the beginning grades. I take a more serious approach with the older pupils interested in achieving high marks. I find music (in non-examination lessons) that would interest the individual pupil so that they are learning music they enjoy!
