Information About Darren - Clane tutor - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Darren:
My name is Darren , i'm a post grad in the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Bolton Street. My research area is Engineering education, having moved into the field following my undergraduate in Physics in DIT. I'm available most evenings during the week.
I have provided private tutoring in the past to college level students in both IT's and Universities across Leinster in both physics and mathematics and also to second level students in physics and mathematics. Additionally I have previously completed work in the area of higher education with the CREATE research group in DIT and have outputted 2 publications which are available on my **Web Address Removed** profile page. I am currently doing my PhD in Engineering Education with DIT as part of the PREFER program funded by the European commission.
Approach to Grinds:
Based on Howard Gardener's theory of multiple intelligence, I will nurture the students spatial and logical skills.To do this I will first reintroduce the topic they may be having trouble with and apply the staircase model to build a simple framework of understanding around the topic. To do this I will use simple terms and diagrams to explain key concepts within the topic; utilizing the students spatial skills. Using the diagram, the student and I will solve the problem symbolically using the diagram they have drawn. Then we will solve the problem numerically, using the constraints put on the problem by the question posed; utilizing their logical skills.
To compound their understanding, at the end of the lesson I will provide the student with a problem similar to the one discussed in that session to work through on his/her own. I will then correct the problem and positively reinforce the student when they apply the correct method, improving their confidence and advising on any mistakes in the method they apply.
They will then be given a more abstract question on the same topic to work through in their own time, submission will be at the beginning of the next lesson, and will be entirely optional.
