Information About Robbie - Clonakilty tutor - (2 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Robbie:
Hi there! My name is Robbie and I'm a final year Applied Math & Physics student at University College Cork (UCC). I obtained 601 points in my Leaving Certificate with a H1 in Math, Applied Math, Physics & Chemistry. I was awarded a scholarship to study abroad at the University of California, Santa Barbara last year. I am a First Class Honors student and have a passion for teaching and helping others.
I have experience tutoring at Junior Cert, Leaving Cert and University level in both Math and Physics. I was a Peer-Assisted-Learning (PAL) Leader for first year Physics students at UCC and led eight tutorials during the academic year. I have also been a lab demonstrator in Physics for first year students as well as tutoring Applied Math for second and third year students in UCC.
Approach to Grinds:
Due to the age range and different personalities of people I tutor, I use a unique approach and adapt my methods to suit the person. My core belief is to focus on patience and clear communication to help aid understanding. Generally, I find out what the student is struggling with or misunderstanding, talk through the topic and break the topic down into its fundamentals. Once I have made sure the student has understood the topic, I give questions based on that topic and work through these questions with them: either by doing the questions alongside them and comparing results or allowing the student to think for themselves and talk me through the question while helping them if they need. For the following grind, I will have assigned questions which we will go through at the start of the grind. If the student has any questions between grinds, they can ask me at the next grind or get in contact with me. I am very flexible and usually go above and beyond to help because I genuinely enjoy what I am doing.
