Personal Description:

My name is Aongus Mac Amhlaigh and I am an experienced teacher from Ireland. Having studied music for many years, I undertook a postgraduate degree in primary school teaching. Having worked in schools for years now, I have found teaching to be a very rewarding and uplifting experience. I am currently working in a teaching capacity for a children's charity here in Aberdeen.

Tutoring Experience:

Since qualifying as a primary school teacher in 2009, I was head hunted to work in a pilot school project in Dublin which had a strong emphasis on behaviour and learning and creating the best conditions for learning for children. While working in the school initially as a classroom teacher and subsequently as a specialist one to one teacher, I was asked to take over, in addition to my regular classroom teaching, the large music department which afforded me to develop a deeper understanding and implement different strategies for teaching and learning. I have undertaken many different training courses in maths, english and music education as well as in learning how to learn, teaching and learning and behavioural development. I am currently developing a learning curriculum which aims to use positive critical self evaluation to recognise and overcome learning obstacles.
I also have a personal interest in learning psychology and as such undertake many online learning courses.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a particularly keen interest in creating a learning environment that facilitates not only optimal learning for a child but also boosts self esteem and encourages risk taking through increased confidence. As stated above, I firmly believe that mistakes are made to be learned from. I see my role as a teacher as one who provides children with the tools to help them to become more autonomous learners.
