Personal Description:

I've just finished my degree in Astrophysics in UCC. As part of my degree, I have received a through training in many aspects of Physics and Maths.

Tutoring Experience:

I have given maths grinds previously for Junior cert and Leaving cert students at both Higher and Ordinary Level. I have carried out Maths grinds in Irish for students who are in a Gaelcholaiste, as I am a past pupil of one myself, and received my own maths secondary education through Irish.

During my degree, I took part in a program called Peer Assisted Learning, in which I helped and tutored first year science students who had no experience with physics with their physics curriculum. I took part in the program in my second and third year and earned 5 credits for my work in the program.

I also was a Physics laboratory demonstrator for first year science students. I demonstrated the experiments at hand and helped the students with any part of the experiments (practical elements, calculations, drawing graphs, writing reports) that they may have had trouble with.

Approach to Grinds:

I think one of the most important things for grinds is to make the student feel relaxed and make sure they know that any questions or difficulty they may have is valid, and can be over come.
After explaining how to solve a problem and carrying out examples with students, I tend to ask the student to repeat the method back to me so that any issues they have with it and where their difficulties lie are made clear and so we can focus on that point until they understand it properly.
