Personal Description:

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 85% in applied maths, 88% in maths, 93% in biology and 89% in DCG. 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.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been providing grinds since the start of September of this year and so far it has been a great success. I have seen steady increases in the grades of my students all around! As well as this, I have first hand experience of what level of detail and information must be provided in an exam to attain good results, having repeated the leaving cert. 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 half a year (I decided to repeat my LC starting In January of 2018), 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 all my students using my own notes which are theirs to keep, these notes cover everything you need to know in order to score highly in exams, including worked examples and walkthroughs. 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 and exam question based tests each week, and to explain in detail for each chapter, how to tackle any possible question that could come up on the day of an exam.
