My passion is to develop in students a commitment to their own life long learning and develop the associated skills to achieve their aspirations.
In tutoring, my goal is to support students to achieve to the best of their ability by helping them understand their role in learning, supporting them to develop the necessary subject specific skill competencies as well as content understanding.
Recent students have achieved over 80% in their university entrance exams with just a few sessions including some focus on exam preparation as well as content. Another student with a commitment to her own success achieved a 7 in IB Business Management with one on one teaching over only one year, where I coached her to develop and apply her learning to achieve her desired results.
In the initial free meeting, I will help students to identify and plan their learning goals, then coach them to achieve those goals in future lessons. I also seek to engage with parents from the beginning to ensure students have as many levels of support for their learning as possible.
My earliest stint with teaching dates back more than a decade when I helped my mother take private tuition at home. Fast forward to 2017 when I was conducting workshops in my MBA school to help students prepare for their semester exams (in subjects such as Financial Markets, Corporate Finance, etc.). In order for me to be able to explain the subject matter, I need not just be well read. I need to be well spoken as well. I am a voracious reader and a passionate public speaker and have represented my school and college at the national level in different competitions. Brewing my interest in the incessant world of finance, I cleared my CFA and FRM Level 1 exams in the very first attempt and am currently awaiting the results for my CFA L2 exams. I have been a subject matter expert reviewer (Finance) for Study.com wherein I reviewed 2500 questions in a span of 6 months (of which 2499 reviews were correct). Of late, I have been a finance tutor on Chegg USA and have completed 200 odd lessons with a 100% success rate.
I have helped numerous students pass exams to gain entry to grammar and private schools including KEGGS, Henrietta Barnet, QE, Westcliff, Ilford County, Woodford County, Chigwell, Bancrofts, Forest, City of London and more! I have also developed a specialist 11+ website to help children nationally called Rush Resources.
Furthermore, I provide Maths, Economics and Business Studies Tuition up to GCSE and A Levels with an excellent Grade 8 and 9 and A* success rate. I also have experience in assisting adult learners with the ACA Accountancy exams assisting graduates at the certificate, professional and advanced level.
My sessions focus on providing students with relevant knowledge from the new curriculums, using teaching methods that suit him or her. ALL resources are provided by me, including worksheets, text books and past exam papers.
22 years of Tutoring Experience in all Accounting and Finance modules at University and Post-Primary Level. I have been working in Education since 1997, for eight years I was hired full-time by Dublin Business School as an Accounting and Finance Lecturer, preparing lectures, giving 20 hours of lectures a week, writing assessments and year end exams and assessing the exams and attending a two day exam board. Since I began my career in Education back in 1997, I have been tutoring and assessing students privately and have continued to do so for the past 22 years !!! The subjects I have been lecturing, tutoring and assessing are Accounting, Cost Accounting, Financial Accounting, Management Accounting and Business Finance at University Level & Post-Primary Level.
Here is a review from my recent summer 2019 student in Dublin, Daire Meehan
“I approached Edel when I realised I had failed both my Advanced Financial Reporting and Advanced Management Accounting modules. I called Edel on a Wednesday afternoon and we met that Saturday to plan out what we needed to cover. We arranged both online and in person meetings, the online was a great help and worked around my busy life. After 2 sessions online I was much more confident and was delighted I reached out to Edel. I always thought accounting was long and convoluted but Edel made things so easy and was able to relate the subjects to every day activities. I would highly recommend her as a tutor”
