Hi, I’m Mick. I’ve been giving Leaving and Junior Certificate maths grinds for over 7 years. I graduated with first class honours in my level 8, Bachelor of Education. I have a huge love for maths that I want to instil in my students.
Teaching is my full time job. I have been working as a primary teacher for over 5 years now. As a qualified teacher specialising in teaching maths and English, I know how to breakdown difficult concepts so students can understand.
I have a detailed knowledge of the Leaving and Junior Cert curriculum. After so many years of providing tuition, I can teach lots of tips and tricks to make learning maths more understandable for students.
Approach to Grinds:
**All tuition will be provided online due to current circumstance in relation to COVID-19**
Learning Environment: I’m a friendly person who creates a comfortable learning environment where students can thrive.
Planning: Every student is unique. Therefore, every lesson is unique and individually planned for the needs of the student.
I place a great emphasis on understanding. Many students focus on learning strategies without knowing why they are implementing them. However, when students truly understand a topic and the reason why they must implement different problem solving strategies, they become better mathematicians. With good understanding, they develop the skills and knowledge to solve new problems in exams by their own intuition.
Format: When I have a new student, we usually do an assessment to gauge their strengths and weaknesses. Then, tuition is given in the main areas of the curriculum. Following this, exam questions are studied to ensure the student becomes confident in answering exam questions.
