I am a full time Maths, Biology and Physical Education second level teacher based in Dublin. I graduated top of my class with a first class honours degree from DCUs Mathematics and Physical Education teaching undergraduate program.

I have 5 years of experience of teaching Mathematics grinds for junior cycle and senior cycle, at both higher and ordinary level.
I know all courses in depth and can help students with anything they may have missed over the school year last year.
Approach to Grinds:
Approach is always flexible and based around identifying what can best help the needs of the student as an individual.
Generally the most successful approach I have taken consists of;
Identifying any foundational gaps in the students knowledge and then parts of the course the student has the most room to improve on from an examinations perspective.
Having them attempt an exam question whilst probing and asking the student to explain their thought process,
Identify any gaps in their understanding or learning within the topic through assessment for learning in probing etc,
Where appropriate provide notes, explain processes and complete demonstrations.
Provide real world examples to help retention where possible.
Then the student completes some exam questions at home and they are corrected at the next grind lesson where learning can be assessed further.
When a student wants to cut straight to the point and learn how to do something rather than how/why it works I am willing to do so, although my preference is to avoid rote learning where possible.
I also try where possible to build cross curricular links within mathematics as most exam questions in recent years at both junior and senior cycle can contain several strands of the curriculum within them.
If a student wants notes to learn off by heart I recommend buying a revision book and not seeking grinds, as my preferred methods involve getting stuck into maths problems.
