I am an experienced, passionate and dedicated post-primary English teacher, with extensive knowledge at both higher and ordinary level for Leaving Cert.
I am a graduate of Trinity College Dublin where I received an honours Professional Masters in Education, and of University College Dublin where I received an honours Bachelor of Arts degree in English.
I am a firm believer that every student has the potential to not only succeed but to enjoy the English curriculum.
I have a plethora of experience working with all types of students, including SEN. As I have been immersed in the English Leaving Cert curriculum for some time now, I am fully up to date with all aspects of it, and take joy in teaching Shakespeare, poetry, the comparative, and comprehensive style questions. I am a creative person at heart, and so I especially enjoy working on Paper.1 topics such as creative writing, letter writing and debates.
I have experience teaching Higher Level and Ordinary Level English in two competitive post-primary schools in Dublin. I have experience in correcting exam papers and have also worked as a teacher abroad.
Approach to Grinds:
I think that every student has a unique way of learning and it is important to tailor my teaching to an approach that suits each individual student. In saying that, I do believe that when answering an English paper a certain structure for each answer is necessary. I like to teach this structure and then nurture the student in developing their own style and creativeness around this in order for them to fully understand and take pride in their writing.
