Personal Description:

I am a language enthusiast with a First class honours 1.1 Degree in Applied Languages from the University of Limerick in Ireland. My majors were French and Spanish and I also have a minor in Japanese. I was an A student at second level, and studied both French and Japanese for leaving certificate. Since graduation I spent time working in the corporate world dealing with the french market so I have experience in professional and business French. I traveled extensively in Spanish speaking countries and also spent time living and working in Japan so I have had plenty of exposure to all of my languages in a practical and professional environment. I am a professional Conference Interpreter working French and Spanish into English.

I am currently based in Sligo

Tutoring Experience:

I worked as teaching English as a Foreign Language in Japan for 8 months, I taught all age groups, from kindergarten age right up to senior high school (3-18 years). I have experience teaching grinds, I taught French and Spanish grinds to University students studying language courses. I have also taught grinds for junior cycle and senior cycle students at secondary school and private adult language classes.

Approach to Grinds:

Language study requires a different approach to most other academic subjects, for some languages can be a challenge but with the correct approach they can be easily conquered. I focus on individual students needs and requirements, some students have a real interest in furthering their language knowledge to acquire top results, while some students aim to pass the exams successfully so they can progress on to focus on other areas of study. I tailor my grinds accordingly; I like to decide on specific goals and targets with the student, so we can make an effective plan together to achieve them.
Everything in life requires effort, and you will not achieve results without hard work, but I believe in studying efficiently. Learning time-management, prioiritising and focusing your study, and learning good exam strategy is extremely important.
I work hard in the hope that my students will reach their potential and be proud of their efforts, and I hope that I can instil even a tiny bit of the love of languages in them that I have myself!
