Personal Description:

First Class Honours, BSc Neuroscience Graduate from UCD. Currently working as a Research Assistant in a UCD Neuroscience lab. Have worked in both academic and industry-based science settings in the US and Ireland. I have worked with young people in a range of settings and have previously been Garda vetted for my current position.

Tutoring Experience:

Have previously given grinds at both Junior Cert and Leaving Cert level, acted as a substitute teacher in a large Irish secondary school, and have given Scientific Career talks to students at a range of levels. I have also previously volunteered with the UCD Access Centre, whereby I tutored Leaving Cert students in disadvantaged areas of Dublin City.

Approach to Grinds:

I tend to take an open and methodical approach to giving grinds. I don't believe in rote learning, and try to promote conceptual understanding as the best way to memorise information. I emphasise the importance of a student being confident in their skills and abilities, and highlight the need for good study and exam technique, which is half the battle. I definitely try to encourage students, and believe that every young person has a high potential that only they can put a limit on.
