Personal Description:

I have worked as a writer for many years. I have a particular interest in creative writing but I have worked as a report writer within various industries. In 2005 I returned to full-time education at the University of Limerick as a mature student, graduating in 2010.

Tutoring Experience:

I worked as a Writing Tutor with the Shannon Consortium Regional Writing Centre based in UL. The work involved helping undergraduate and postgraduate students from across all disciplines to plan, research and write essays and presentations, how to write academic papers using various citation styles, and how to compile a bibliography.

Approach to Grinds:

Most students are competent enough to sit down and explain to a fellow student what their subject matter is about and why they feel a certain aspect of it is important, but don’t have the confidence to write this down in an essay. Students can also become overwhelmed by the presentation guidelines. I believe that by guiding someone through the planning and writing process it is often easier for students to formulate a theory or idea into a sustained and understandable argument. The principles of communicating ideas or the ability to take complex theories and explain them to others in an easy to understand format are the same for both written and verbal presentations and students should be encouraged to work through writing problems and let them discover a writing style that works for them, rather then imposing strategies on them. The goal should be to develop the writer’s ability rather then improving a text.
