Personal Description:

Hi! My name is Ray and I am originally from Ballinasloe, Co.Galway. I graduated in August 2017 in Modern Languages (French, German and Spanish) from the University of Limerick with a first-class honours (top grades). I am extremely passionate for the 3 of the foreign languages I speak, and also for teaching. I have plenty of teaching experience as I have tutored many students in the past, taught French, German and Spanish in various summer camps in Ireland and in Switzerland, and I have worked in Spain as an English and German teacher. I am a very friendly, approachable and social person. I enjoy meeting new people from all over the world, learning about different cultures and just being happy!

Tutoring Experience:

I was an English and German teacher in Spain, teaching children and teens English and German grammar, vocabulary,etc and improving their confidence speaking the language. I have worked as a French, German and English teacher in Switzerland during the summer for the past 2 years. I have worked at a German immersion camp in the west of Ireland for students doing German for the junior and leaving cert. I have plenty of experience tutoring previous students, some of which I have gotten into contact with on this website.

Approach to Grinds:

My approach to tutoring definitely revolves around the fact that I try and make the language, whether it be French, Spanish or German, more appealing to the student. I don't believe in sitting down for hours upon hours studying pages a text book. Instead, I try to incorporate videos, movies, literature, new technology, etc. in to my teaching as much as possible as these often make learning more enjoyable. The student will be 'studying' but will not be aware of it, which I think is the best way to learn. Nevertheless, as it is important for the junior and the leaving cert to be able to use certain grammar rules, write a letter (or different forms of essays), etc. these are also focused on and will be revised thoroughly as they are a major part of the exam. For leaving cert students, I try and communicate with the student solely in the studied language in order to immerse them in the language and to enhance learning. For junior cert, obviously this is not possible 100% of the time, but it still plays a big part as it will help students in all areas of the exam, especially the speaking and listening parts.

**IMPORTANT** !!! : I am currently living in Germany. I tutor various students over Skype and it works very well. This is obviously the only option that will be available for me at the moment, so please be aware of this. Again, I must say having the class over Skype is not any worse than in person, it just may require some more effort on behalf of the student. If you have any queries regarding this, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me! I am offering a 20% discount for the first lesson so you can see if tutoring over Skype works for you or not! ***
