Personal Description:

Hi! I'm Dexter (19), I have just started my second year at UCD studying Maths and Physics, online unfortunately. I completed my Leaving Certificate in 2019, wherein I later received 590 points and got 4 H1's. I believe that since I have so recently completed my own Leaving Cert that I am of utmost expertise to what the Department of Education is looking for in its examinations and I can give handy tips as to what the SEC is correcting for. Now, I would like to help struggling students get good grades in their exams too. I love teaching and find it very rewarding.

Tutoring Experience:

I have given several grinds in the past year on Leaving Cert Maths, Physics and Chemistry and they seem to have worked out very well. I hope to expand my horizons for giving grinds and to gain more experience. When I was in Transition Year, a couple of my mates and I set up the 'First Year Maths Club', in which we had sessions every Wednesday where Junior Cycle students could join and we could help them understand some of the maths they were struggling with in class. Aside from that I have worked on and off at an afterschool care for primary school children where as part of the job I'd have to help the kids with their homework. I would have to be patient and help the kids to understand how the subject works, which when they finally completed I felt very accomplished.

Approach to Grinds:

In these uncertain times I am happy to give grinds over Zoom or Discord, we can use the facilities to send over notes and to screen-share which would allow me to write out solutions to different problems and show them to the student. My approach to grinds would not change much to when I am in person, depending on the subject, I would ask how the student is feeling about the work they are currently doing in class and if they need help we can go through homework questions together. I would also provide my own notes on the material that I will have written to particularly help the student. If the student feels fine in the current topic we may revisit old topics or get a head-start on a new topic by going through their book, following my own personal notes and doing sample questions varying in difficulty. The goal is for me to get the student to understand the material and not to rote-learn it off as I believe that is less effective.
