Information About Jesseka - Letterkenny tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Jesseka:
My name is Jesseka , I am 20 years old and live in Donegal, Ireland. I am a current undergraduate student at Dublin City University studying a bachelors in Education in Irish with Spanish. My education has been entirely through Irish and I have a great passion for the language. I am continuously improving my level of Irish, not only through my university classes but also through Irish debates, public speaking and Irish music competitions. I achieved a H1 in Irish in my Leaving Certificate as well as a H1 in Spanish. I have a high proficiency of Spanish also from spending a lot of time in Spain from a young age and for that reason I took it on as an extra foreign language, as well as German (in which I achieved a H2), for my Leaving Cert.
As my course is an education course, I have taken various education modules, one of which is a practical and requires us to teach lessons to our peers. I have been tutoring Irish and Spanish for almost a year now from my home and receive positive feedback from my students. This year I also volunteered in teaching primary children from the community near the university Irish, which was a rewarding experience.
Approach to Grinds:
I take a very student centered approach to one-on-one tuition. I design every lesson to the abilities of the individual and aim to develop their current knowledge of the language. Many find languages a difficult aspect of schooling and I feel that stimulating an interest for the language in the student increases their confidence and makes it more appealing to them to study. I will design high quality notes on the content I teach and will distribute them to the student every week. Orals are an important aspect to learning a language and to school assessments, therefore I aim to emphasize this element of language learning and will aid the student as much as possible by way of practice and personalised oral notes. I am very familiar with the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate course and am open to correcting any work done by the individual. I am also open to using any teaching approach the student finds most effective.
