Personal Description:

My name is Jason and I have recently graduated from the University of Limerick (class of 2018) with a First Class Honours degree (1.1) in Applied Languages (French, Irish and Spanish.) I am currently studying a Masters in Conference Interpreting in NUIG. I am a linguaphile and an avid reader who is very enthusiastic and passionate about language education, travel and culture. I have worked and studied abroad in both France and Spain as part of my degree. I undertook a 6 month internship in Paris during my second year (2016) and completed my erasmus in Alicante, Spain in my third year (2016/2017). I carried out additional internships in Madrid in both the summers of 2017 (entire) and 2018 (partial). I also returned to Paris for part of summer 2018.

In my Leaving Cert I achieved A1s in both Higher Level French and Irish. I also achieved A grades in both of these languages in my Junior Cert.
I started Spanish in university.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as an Irish teacher in Coláiste Acla, Oileán Acla (3 courses in total) and as a teaching assistant in Coláiste Laichtin, Inis Oírr (1 course). In addition, I have taught French, Irish and Spanish grinds to Junior and Leaving Cert students as well as adults since winter 2014.

Approach to Grinds:

I am extremely exam focused for secondary school and university students. For the written and aural components, the exam paper is your BIBLE! I go through how to best approach each section in great detail. Moreover, I believe that phrase learning is key for students who are sitting state exams. Phrases can be easy to remember and an appropriate use of phrases can impress an examiner. For the oral component, I initially cover all the 'expected' topics and then move on to more challenging ones. Speaking is paramount. That said, I don't just provide a student with notes, I insist on pronunciation, communication and presentation by speaking with a student as an examiner would. Grammar applies to all languages and a good understanding of tenses is imperative. I therefore place a particular emphasis on this aspect of language learning (particularly in the first few grinds). Lastly, I understand the importance of 'tidying up' any areas of learning that a student particularly struggles with. Extra time is therefore given to areas where a student may be encountering some problems or difficulties.

The same fundamental ideas apply to adult education classes but there is of course, more flexibility as there is usually no exam involved. In this scenario, I focus on providing the student with tuition that will help them meet their personally desired goals.
