Hi, my name is Conor and I'm a third year Engineering with Management student in Trinity College Dublin. I am on track for a First Class Honours degree and have not scored less than a First in any of my Maths modules to date. I have a strong interest in Mathematics and its real-world applications and am keen to assist other students in their understanding of the subject.
To date, I have given grinds to both Junior Cycle and Senior Cycle students. Feedback so far has been great and there has been a noticeable increase in both exam performance and understanding of the subject.
The most beneficial way of learning Maths is by breaking down complex material into smaller, easier-to-understand components and then applying this to practise questions. With my assistance, I think it is best that the student develops their own process of thinking through a question. However, I always allow the student to ultimately work out the final solution. With a solid framework and understanding of the material, the student will be capable of taking on any question in an exam.
Approach to Grinds:
Although notes can be useful for some aspects of Mathematics, the best way to learn is through practise. I tend to teach using questions from textbooks & past papers, and assist the student in logically working through each problem to find the correct solution. By applying a consistent approach to Maths questions, the student can be more confident in their ability to score highly in an exam paper. Each week, the student will complete a set of problems on the material the student is finding most difficult. This will allow for one-on-one time to be focused on the questions the student struggled most with, to revise class tests, and to iron out any problems they may have.
