Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified ESL teacher with extensive teaching and tutoring experience. I have excellent communication skills, pay great attention to detail and I am passionate about teaching.
My degree in English and History has facilitated a keen interest in these subjects, and my knowledge of the Irish curriculum means I will provide an exam-focused, in-depth approach for students sitting their exams.
Above all I am patient, dedicated, and well-structured in my approach to both ESL teaching, and grinds for the Junior and Leaving Certificate. My focus is firmly placed on the academic needs of the student.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as a writing tutor at NUI Galway for the past year, offering personalized one-on-one advice to a range of students on essay format, editing, research, referencing and clarity of expression.
Since my qualification as an ESL teacher, I have also worked full time at an English language summer school. I taught English to classes of up to sixteen students, and tutored adults and teenagers one-on-one. In addition to this valuable experience, I have supervised and led children and teens in various summer camps over the years.

Approach to Grinds:

I put a significant amount of effort into ensuring that my approach to teaching is student-centered. Those who specify that they are studying for exams will find me well-prepared and familiar with the requirements of that exam, and ready to focus on exam-style questions and techniques. Those who wish to improve their English for business or social reasons can also expect the same level of dedication and focus from me. I always attempt to engage with the student using his or her preferred learning style, and to formulate both conversational and written exercises that challenge and excite them. I attempt to maximize the time spent with the student by planning the tutorial session in detail, and I will focus on areas of weakness or interest as required.
