English Graduate from UCD with 6 years experience offering Grinds in Meath.

Methodology

All classes are structured around the basis of understanding. The most important thing for me is that the students I teach have a full understanding of whats required of them. All aspects of the course are gone through and all notes gone over in class are made available to you. No question is silly and I will always be more than happy to look over work and give constructive feedback and comments.

Experience

I am an English and Drama graduate from University College Dublin. I also have an MA in Theatre Practice and Production from the National University of Ireland, Galway.
I have been teaching English grinds to primary and secondary school students since 2014.
I am also a business owner with an online platform providing classes in Creative Writing, English Grinds and Drama.
