Hi there! I'm Pádraig. I am in my sixth year of primary school teaching at present. I have a strong interest across the curriculum - in particular with Maths, English, Irish and History! I am a big people person - my parents owned a shop growing up which I credit a lot for that! I currently teach 6th Class however I have taught senior infants, first class, fourth class, fifth class and I have also taught in learning support in the past too. I like to add a bit of quirkiness and fun to my lessons as I believe a positive learning environment is essential for learning to take place.
Due to the current situation in Ireland with schools being closed, I would be happy to offer my services via Skype where possible. Get in touch if you have a primary school child who needs help with English, Irish, Maths or other and I will do my very best to lend a hand.
As mentioned, I have six years of teaching experience to-date: Senior Infants, First Class, Fourth Class, Fifth Class, Learning Support and currently Sixth Class, which is a nice balance between the junior and senior end curriculums. I am currently working in Sixth Class.
I have worked with children with reading difficulties in the past via this website. I have also helped with Junior and Leaving Cert Maths.
Approach to Grinds:
I am a patient educator who will not proceed to new topics until I am sure that the previous content is understood fully. I am very approachable when a student asks me a question when they are unsure. I also welcome mistakes - it shows me how you are thinking and also shows what specific area you need help with.
My structure to grinds varies depending on the subject area and level. Primary school Maths grinds will focus on the initial computation and strategy skills of any areas that require attention. Primary school English grinds are reading focused and we will work on novels, comprehension skills and reading skills such as predicting, inferring and connecting. Primary school Irish will be heavily oral language-based to get the confidence up. We can work on all aspects of grammar and sentence structure too.
In all, my approach to grinds is one of care, patience and friendly rapport.
