Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified secondary school teacher of music, Irish and French - registered with the Teaching Council of Ireland.

I have achieved an Honours Degree in Arts from University College dublin, with my two subjects being Nua-Ghaeilge and Music.

Also graduated with an honours Master's in Education from Trinity College Dublin. Overall teaching practise score at a 75%.

I have completed grades from RIAM - with the violin being my major instrument.

I am a music practical examiner for the Junior Examinations and examiner for the State Examinations Commission.

Tutoring Experience:

I have three years of post-primary teaching experience at both Junior and Senior Cycle in teaching Music and Irish at different levels.
I have been a teacher at various Summer Gaeltacht courses.
I am an experienced grinds teacher for 5 years. I have been teaching Music with the CCE for several years now and also provide private classical instruction.
I have also corrected Junior Level examination papers which means I have an in depth knowledge on how the examinations are marked and what the examiner is looking for.

Approach to Grinds:

At the beginning of the grinds session I will work and discuss with the student the goals in which they hope to achieve from our grinds and create a plan to put these goals into action. I aim to tailor the grinds to each individual by focusing on what they feel their problem areas are and as the grinds progress what various problems arise. Notes will be given in each session that will help them with their difficulties. I am patient and flexible in regards to my lessons, and I will work and decide with the student what we will work on, on a week to week basis.
