I have been teaching Maths, Physics and Applied Maths to Leaving Cert Honours level for the last 13 years in Ennistymon CBS / Ennistymon Community School, Co. Clare. I also teach Junior Cycle Science and Coding and Leaving Cert Computer Science. I have a website www.hardsums.ie where I share my teaching resources for these subjects with other teachers/students.

From 2012 – 2015, I worked as a local facilitator for the Project Maths Development Team. This involved giving courses for Maths teachers in the Limerick and Clare Education Centres. In the last four years, I have also worked for various Education Centres giving teacher courses in Leaving Cert Honours Maths and Junior Cycle Coding.

I also give Leaving Cert Honours Maths revision courses every summer for 5th year students going into 6th year at www.mathskillarney.ie (and formerly at Brú na Páirce, Killarney).

Before changing career to teaching in 2003, I worked as an Electronic Engineer for Parthus/Ceva Inc. ( https://www.ceva-dsp.com ) for 7 years.
