I founded Whizzkids Inc to provide any student, anywhere, with a dedicated leaving certificate exam hacker/tutor who knows the maths curriculum inside-out, upside-down and is ready to create a lesson based on what you need to know and understand. I was awarded 7 Higher Level A1s in my Leaving Cert, and am now studying Engineering on a 1st Class Honours and an Ad Astra academic scholarship in UCD. I have been giving 2nd and 3rd level grinds for 2 years and have worked as a Physics teacher at the only A-Level school in Ireland.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
1) When I meet a new student, I first explore the following, by discussion and by giving them two questionnaires to fill out:
What subject(s) they need help with, what their difficulties/strengths are, what their academic goals are, how they most effectively study and learn, how effective their current teacher/lecturer and school is etc.
2) Then I create a custom learning programme based on their needs, what they need to know, and how they can most effectively learn it.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have covered several modules in Algebra, Calculus, Applied Maths, Trigonometry, Statistics, Probability and Computer Science in my Electrical Engineering Degree.
I trained as a multi-faceted programmer at University College Cork.
I trained as a teacher with University College Dublin Volunteers Overseas, to teach English and Computer Skills to adults and children alike.
I taught children to code at three different Coder Dojo locations, including its birthplace in Cork City, Ireland.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Lesson prices are $15-$25 per hour for 2nd level, and $20 - $30 per hour for 3rd level depending on how you would like to be taught (video lesson, exam paper solutions, or concise notes).
How did you get started teaching?
I founded my own tutoring company - Live & Learn Exam Mentorship - which provided exam focused tutoring, integrated study skills and exam technique into every lesson, took the students learning style into account, and offered every lesson through Gaeilic for those studying for their exams in that language.
What types of students have you worked with?
I've worked with Irish Junior Certificate, Irish Leaving Certificate, International Bacclaureate, University Business, University Engineering and United Kingdom A-Level students over the past 3 years.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a tutor in your area of expertise?
It's one thing to have expertise in an area, and of course your ideal tutor should have that. But furthermore, they should offer you an effective and efficient learning structure, that molds to your strengths, weaknesses and goals.
What questions should students think through before talking to tutors about their needs?
What exactly do you need tutoring for? To pass exams, to get a 1st Class Honours, or to clear up a particluar topic?
