Information About Mary - Port Laoise tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Mary:
After graduating as a secondary school teacher in Maths and Science, I worked in a third-level college for a number of years teaching both Maths and Computer Science. After taking a break from teaching to raise my family, I then spent two years working in a computing company. Then, due to a change of location and a preference for teaching, I returned to tutoring, giving maths grinds and teaching primary school children who could not attend school.
I have experience of tutoring students in Maths at both Junior and Leaving Cert. level. I can provide both on-line and face-to-face teaching and learning, during the day or in the evening.
I have experience working with students whilst they were unable to attend school and I have worked with students for whom English is not their first language (EAL).
I am Garda Vetted and registered with the Teaching Council and I have trained in e-portfolios and other digital tools.
Approach to Grinds:
My approach to grinds is student focused. My aim is to help the students achieve their full potential in Maths by focusing on their individual attributes and what learning methods work best for them whilst at the same time homing in on any areas which might be preventing them from achieving. I use a practical approach to learning, at a pace suitable for the individual student with an expectation on the student to revise what has been covered in advance of the next grind. In this way, I can assess and build on the student’s progress, moving forward.
