Hi, I’m Jean and welcome to my website!
Based in Dalkey in South County Dublin, I provide individualised teaching sessions for children and young adults, with a wide range of learning needs.
Supporting students during the coronavirus pandemic is a challenge, but by keeping students engaged, and using flexible teaching methods, it is a challenge that we can meet together.
While learning remains central, student safety and well-being have also become priorities. Using the medium of remote teaching, I have continued to work successfully with my students, so that they have maintained their progress, and sometimes even developed new, previously unrealised potentials.
Working remotely with students, using video platforms such as Zoom, Facetime and others, offers new exciting possibilities for learning. No longer limited to my local area, this way of working opens for me the exciting prospect of teaching new students from further afield, perhaps even in other countries.
Key Aspects of my approach:
A positive, encouraging approach that restores and facilitates the student’s self-confidence, motivation and self-belief
Planned, evidence-based, teaching interventions based on the student’s individual learning needs
Collaborative working with parents, including regular feedback and reviews of progress
Collaborative working with teachers, educational psychologists, speech and language therapists and other professionals
