Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified, professional teacher and tutor of Maths and Physics with 25 years experience of successful tutoring and full-time secondary teaching across the full ability range, in the West of London. Over that time I have been a student of Irish Gaeilge, attending courses in the Donegal Gaeltacht each Summer and I have reached a good standard of spoken and written Irish, having achieved Gold Fáinne standard. I would now like to share my love for the language with one or more learners / improvers.
I retired from classroom teaching a few years ago, enabling me to offer tuition in my home at Whitton, **Postcode Removed**. It is easily accessible fromTwickenham, Richmond, Hounslow and surrounding areas.

If you would like more details or to discuss your individual learning needs or to arrange a (free) preliminary meeting please give me a call. At the meeting all my qualifications and Enhanced DBS Certificates will be presented to parents and we will have the opportunity to further discuss your tuition needs.

If I'm unable to take your call please leave your name, number and brief message and I will return your call promptly.

Teaching Experience:

Learning experience : I have attended Irish courses with Oideas Gael in GlenColmCille and Glenfin every summer over the last 22 years

Teaching Approach:

I use a student - centred approach and continuous assessment and feedback to find and fix gaps in student's knowledge and understanding.
Possible strategies include (a) working through the syllabus (b) working through text book OR revision guide OR workbook OR exam papers . It depends on the level at which the student is studying and the learning method favoured by the student. Nowadays, there are excellent Irish learning resources available.
