Personal Description:

If anyone is interested in doubling up with another student of similar ability please let me know
I currently have students doing junior cert french/ irish (higher level) and
Leaving cert French (higher and ordinary level) and leaving cert irish (higher only) that may be interested in sharing the online grind with you, for a lesser fee of course!

I am currently working as a secondary school teacher and grinds teacher in Athy, Kildare, based in Athy town.
I have taught both Leaving Cert and Junior Cert students at higher and ordinary level. My students have achieved high in exams.
I have written up straight forward notes tailored to the exams.

**Academic school year 2019-2020 - a lot of slots have already been allocated this month (September) for the school year, first come first served is the fairest way to give people their preferred time/day**

Unfortunately I cannot travel to the students home as I have limited time between grinds throughout the week.

Tutoring Experience:

7 years as secondary school teacher and 6years as grinds teacher.
State examiner for the last 5 years, and I also correct the mocks throughout the year.
Author of “The Lazy Guide to French Essay writing” booklet, which I will be using with leaving cert French students during grinds. I also have more amateur booklets for junior Cert French and irish

Approach to Grinds:

I like to keep my approach simple and straightforward. I have spent a lot of time designing notes tailored to the state exams that will help you get a good grade with minimum learning required.
We do exam paper questions, oral practices, etc.
The student dictates the grind and they tell me what they want and we work from there.

**Please note I’m really busy at this time of the year with grinds/teaching so please give me 24 hour in advance if you have to cancel a grind Most people are polite enough to do this anyway. It’s common practice to still charge students if they don’t give advance notice or simply don’t turn up, and I want to avoid that at all costs, so please just notify me in plenty of time!
