My name is Patrick. I am studying mechanical engineering in UCD in my second year. I completed my leaving cert in 2019. I have a strong background in Maths, Science (Biology, Physics) and Applied Maths, I achieved a H1 in all of these subjects in 2019. I currently work in Fitzpatrick's Castle Killiney part time as a waiter, when not working, I play rugby for seapoint. I also love formula 1 and football!!
I have been tutoring for 2 years. Last year, from September 2019 to March 2020 (stopped early due to Covid-19) I had 4 students in leaving cert and junior cert maths. I gave each student between 1 - 2 grinds per week. The previous year, while in 6th year, I tutored my sister and her friend in junior cert maths. My lessons are structured and planned in advance and I always give a study plan to help the student to prepare for their exams.
Approach to Grinds:
My approach to grinds is one that engages the student from the beginning. From my experience in teaching and in learning, the best way to learn is by being fully involved in the learning process. It isn't enough to sit at the back of a class. With Maths and physics in particular, the student has to do questions and be asking questions, which is why tutoring is the perfect way to learn. My approach to giving grinds is to ask the student what they know and then teach the topic with use of questions and explaining. We'll then go over the topic and I'll assign questions relating to the topic to be completed the next week.
