Welcome to my tutoring profile.
The covid pandemic has had a detrimental effect on students' learning and I am happy to offer my services to improve the grades and self-confidence of your son or daughter at this critical time. Please see my details below.
I have a BA in English from Maynooth University and a Professional Masters in Education, also from MU.
I have five years' experience teaching English. Most recently I have taught English to Higher Level Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate in Terenure College, Dublin.
I have previously taught in a mixed Educate Together school in Dublin, an all boys school in Celbridge and a mixed school in Kilcock.
These contrasting environments have equipped me with a wide ranging set of teaching skills and practices. All of these schools have taught me the importance of the student-centred approach, where I adjust my teaching to support the student, not the other way around.
In the summer of 2016 I marked the Junior Cert English Ordinary Level paper and in 2019 I marked the Junior Cert Higher Level Paper. I have a substantial understanding of the marking scheme for the new Junior Cert, I am extremely familiar with the curriculum and I also have vast knowledge of the areas that students find particularly tricky.
I believe that the student's wellbeing and mental health is just as important in order for effective learning to be achieved. I encourage my students to meditate for a few minutes at the start of each tutorial and I give them tips on how to handle the anxiety of school and exams.
I was an English teacher in Terenure College from September 2020 - June 2021. I am currently taking some time off to work on personal projects and have greater availability as a result.
Approach to Grinds:
My approach is completely student-centred. I work with the student to identify areas that can be improved and also what that particular student's learning style is. I combine these two aspects to tailor my grinds to suit the individual needs of that student. I am always available for questions and guidance through email and phone.
