Personal Description:

My name is Sorcha. I'm a graduate of International Languages in UCD. I received A1's in both French and German in the Leaving Cert. in 2016. I love music and sport and meeting new people, I'm passionate about language-learning both from the perspective of a tutor and a learner. Languages open up so many doors for us in terms of meeting new and interesting people and visiting wonderful places. I intend to make language-learning a positive experience so that the learner can go on to achieve their optimum result in relevant exams, while also instilling in them, a love and connection to the language they're learning.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught English as a foreign language for two summers (2017&2018) with ACLE, in Italy. I also taught English biweekly to a child in Paris with Babylangues during my year on Erasmus there. During my second year of college I gave French and German grinds to secondary school students throughout the year. I thoroughly enjoyed these experiences and have encountered the rewards that come with making connections with students and witnessing the improvement in their language-ability and confidence.

Approach to Grinds:

I understand the self-consciousness around learning languages and I strive to eliminate any negative atmosphere in the learning environment. Learning languages should be a fun and positive experience as emotions generate learning. I will approach each person differently, firstly assessing their level in order determine our starting point. I think it is important to build the student's confidence while reminding them of what they already know, and helping them in their areas of difficulty. We will do written, listening and spoken exercises, for the most part using past examination papers as stimulus in order to solidify the target learning of the lesson.
