Information About Scott - Dublin tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Scott:
I'm looking to give grinds in mathematics, applied mathematics, physics, DCG and technical graphics at both higher and ordinary level. I'm currently a third year engineering student in UCD, living in Dundrum. I'm from Clonmel Co.Tipperary and was educated at Kilkenny College.I received first class honors in my first year engineering exams last year. During the leaving certificate, I obtained a total of 615 points receiving an A1 in mathematics, physics and DCG and an A2 in applied mathematics (all higher level). I am a UCD entrance scholar and I was awarded the Naughton Scholarship for outstanding leaving certificate results in 2016. During the Junior certificate, I received an A in both mathematics and technical graphics.
I have given multiple clients, my cousin and my younger sister grinds in the above subjects before. The results were very positive and I am keen to pass on my teachings to a broader audience as soon as possible.I am also a fully qualified sailing coach who has coached multiple sailors both in Ireland and the USA. From this experience, I have a good understanding of the best way to get young minds to focus and learn in an effective way.
Approach to Grinds:
My approach not only to grinds but to education itself is that understanding is far more important than rote learning. During my grinds, there will be a high emphasis on the logic behind what they are learning. Once a student understands the principle behind a particular area of study they will a) be able to show this high level of comprehension to examiners during exams to obtain the highest mark and b) be able to remember the material for longer.
