Information About Janina - Bray tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Janina:
Hello, I'm a first year biological and biomedical science student in Trinity who achieved 590 points in my leaving cert (2020) including a H1 in Biology, English, Irish and Music. I'm a friendly and approachable grinds teacher with a passion for biological sciences. I enjoy teaching this subject in a way that's easy to understand. Having just completed my leaving cert, I know the course inside out. I know how to maximise your grade and correctly word your answers to achieve top marks in each section. I like to encourage others to enjoy biology as much as I do as it makes studying the subject easier. I'm also a pianist and have been for over 10 years. I also have a grade 6 certificate in music theory and harmony which makes me a good tutor for Leaving Certificate Music.
since the start of 5th year I've given 1-1 and group help to friends in school and more recently through 6th year and the COVID-19 lockdown I've given biology grinds to peers through Zoom. My Zoom grinds consist of screen-sharing (use of videos, diagrams, exam questions and a PDF of my own notes).
Approach to Grinds:
Biology is a subject which requires understanding of basics, such as the cell, the structure of a flowering plant, and more detailed concepts like respiration and photosynthesis. I believe it's important that my students are grounded in the biology basics before any difficult topics are tackled. I find that most people fall behind in biology because the class is paced too quick and the book is overly complicated. It's important that a student knows what they are writing about and not just memorising definitions that they don't really understand. This will make study ten times easier. Once you've got the difficult topics nailed, then we will focus heavily on exam papers. Exam papers, exam papers, exam papers. They are very important and I know all the tips and tricks for the questions asked in each section of the paper.
