Information About Scott - Malahide tutor - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Scott:
Hi! My name is Scott and I’m currently a student in trinity college Dublin, studying engineering with management. I repeated the leaving cert in 2018 and increased my previous score of 455 points to 543 points, including h2s in applied maths, maths, and a h1 in biology. I would consider myself an extremely friendly, accommodating and patient person. I enjoy helping students who have difficulties with subjects I have comprehensively studied for the past 3 years, and find satisfaction in developing confidence in my students.
I would often provide assistance to classmates who struggle with their subjects during the leaving cert which proved to be a great success! This is effectively what has encouraged me to provide grinds this year. As well as this, having increased my applied maths standard from a h5 to h2 , Maths from a h4 to h2, and biology from a h3 to h1 all in the space of a year, I would consider myself quite a suitable grinds teacher.
Approach to Grinds:
From my own experience of having repeated the leaving cert, the key to scoring high grades in any exam is to understand the material comprehensively, rather than just “learning off notes” and to study efficiently by fine tuning what information you need to know by constantly practicing past exam papers. With my students, I aim to emphasize the crucial importance of fully understanding even the smallest details about the subject. I teach leaving cert students based off my own class notes which I used to obtain my high results in 2018. In the days leading up to my biology leaving cert paper I was scoring greater than 96% in all past papers. At the start of each lesson I feel it crucial to understand how the student feels about their subject confidence wise, and what they are hoping to have achieved by the end of the lesson, so that they are making efficient use of their time and money. Should you decide to hire me on a weekly basis for grinds, I will ensure to provide exam focused homework questions each week, and to explain in detail for each chapter, how the student can hit the “key lines” (specific points which are awarded marks in an exam), therefore maximizing their score in the real exam.
