Personal Description:

A chairde,
I am offering ONLINE ONLY €30p/h Irish grinds and €20 p/h corrections for both Junior Cert and Leaving Cert students. I cover all aspects of both courses, including oral tuition. After a year working as a secondary school teacher, I spent two years with Conradh na Gaeilge working solely though Irish, promoting the language in schools around the country. I then spent a further year teaching in a secondary school and am now based in London.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught at Rosemont Secondary School in Sandyford, Dublin from September 2014 to June 2015. I taught both the Junior and Leaving Cert curriculum. I then spent a year with Conradh na Gaeilge travelling to over 150 schools around the country giving Irish language TY workshops. After this, I spent a year based in the Conradh na Gaeilge offices, where I taught adult Irish courses in Trinity and D.I.T. outside office hours.

I have spent numerous summers in the Galway Gaeltacht teaching at summer courses.

Approach to Grinds:

My overall aim in any grind is to help the student put together simple, grammatically correct Irish sentences, both in written and oral form. This is the most important skill they need, as opposed to learning off lots of complicated notes they don't understand, and therefore won't remember.

The Leaving Cert course has recently been restructured to reward students with a genuine ability to speak the language. I tend not to focus on the literature section of the courses, as these questions are worth very little marks. The oral, composition and comprehension sections are much more important.
