Information About Rebecca - Ferbane tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Rebecca:
Hi, my name is Rebecca. I am twenty five. I went to college for six years studying English. I attended Mary I and Hibernia College. I absolutely love English! I am a very bubbly and energetic person, I'm also super kind and friendly.
I was the main English teacher in a school in London. It was a unique school for people that needed extra help, so we were generally one-on-one. I found ways of teaching Shakespeare while playing basketball, or colouring pictures, or sitting on the floor because the students needed to keep moving around!
I then taught in a school in Tipperary. I had 5th year + 6th year higher level english, and ordinary level 5th years at a different point. I had an ordinary level 3rd year class, higher 2nd years and mixed 1st years.
My higher level 6th years were devasteated when they lost me as their teacher. They wrote me so many cards saying that I was an excellent teacher.
I love essays! Weirdo I know! I couldn't wait to correct essays students wrote for me, I always ensured to get them back covered in feedback + advice for them to improve themselves.
Approach to Grinds:
I have been practicing video chatting with my leaving cert nephew recently. He needed help with poetry. I posted notes to his address for him to look at, and emailed him a powerpoint. When we videod then, I felt like we could chat so casualy about the poems. It felt so natural, like I wasn't 'teaching' him, but confirming what he already knew! I set him questions for him to do and send me a picture of his answers, or post them to me if he wanted written feedback.
Each learner is different, I am more than flexible to adapt to the learners' preferences. I love it when a studnet is comfortable and comfident enough to say, "could you slow down/ go over that again a different way", and I will go above and beyond to meet that request.
