I graduated from the University of Limerick with a BSc in Physical Education and Mathematics. My current role as a permanent Mathematics teacher in a co-educational Church of England school in Oval, has fielded me the opportunity to deliver education from Year 7- Year 11 (GCSE) and A level. Throughout my tenure at Oval, I have undertaken various programmes including the Maths enrichment programme and GCSE after school revision classes. These activities have proved to be very well received, based on the student feedback, the consistent high levels of attendance and overall student performance.

Alongside teaching and tutoring Maths, I have a keen background in sports. In particular, having played hockey at an international level, has allowed to contribute greatly to educating students in PE. I always try to bring my enthusiasm and skill set to any environment in which I am fortunate enough to be in.

Personal Approach: 

I believe that a good rapport with the student has a proven success in developing a comfortable but structured learning environment. I aim to provide a solid grounding in the subject while paying close attention to the needs of the individual.

An initial meeting establishes the student’s needs and the direction tuition should take, usually with a parent present. Then we begin work on a programme of study which focuses on filling gaps in knowledge and addressing any areas of weakness.

I set regular homework and writing assignments – the quantity varying with how much time the student has – and give feedback the following session.
