Personal Description:

Hi! I'm Lia, I'm a second year medical student in Trinity. I finished the Leaving Cert in 2019 at the Institute of Education where I got 601 points, with four H1s (Chemistry, Biology, French, Spanish) and three H2s (Home Ec, English, Maths). I'm also a competitive rock climber as well as an avid reader.

I am an enthusiastic, open person who is willing to be creative to adapt to a student's learning style.

Tutoring Experience:

I have extensive experience of the details of the Leaving Cert course having just recently finished, and also experience tutoring my peers. I found tutoring others a great way of studying for the exams, and took every opportunity to help others while preparing.

Last year I tutored in one of my biology students through the entire course in 6 months. We worked hard together and successfully raised her from a level of zero knowledge to doing well in the higher level exam.

I have an in-depth understanding of the Leaving Cert marking schemes, a knowledge of which is vital for exam success.

I can also advise on study skills and time management to aid students who may be struggling to cope with the LC workload.

I am also available for French and Spanish oral preparation coming up to exams having got 100% in both my leaving cert orals and having lived in Spain for two years.

Approach to Grinds:

As someone who struggles to learn off vast amounts of information just by reading, I use creative methods to aid long term memory like summarising, flashcards, drawings, talking out loud and explaining the concept to other people. I understand students have many learning styles, and I will adapt my explanations as such.

For example, I had a friend who struggled to retain information as the teacher explained it. As a solution, I would explain the concept, ask her to explain it back to me, and then quiz her until she was answering the questions correctly. This method of active studying worked much better for her than the conventional rereading of notes.

I will also supply students with the notes and online flashcards (quizlet) that I used to achieve these high LC grades.
