Hello! My name is Oisin Coveney. I am currently a student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, studying Computer Science and Economics. While I was born in Tokyo, I moved to the United States and live in San Jose, CA for 17 years before moving to Dallas. I enjoy working with everybody of all ages, and gain the most satisfaction when someone finally "gets it," the euphoric feeling that somebody gets when they finally understand the topic. I hope I can help you out!
I have been tutoring privately for around three years, teaching math up to precalculus, English grammar, and computer science, including basic computer science concepts and Java. I have also had experience coaching and teaching children through several soccer programs, working with children ranging from 5 to 15 years old.
De Anza Force Soccer Club, Assistant Soccer Coach of U15 De Anza Force Soccer
2015 - 2016
Working with these girls involved creating drills based on the team's weaknesses, keeping track of fitness levels, and overall well-being of the team
De Anza Youth Soccer League, Assistant Soccer Coach for De Anza Recreational Youth League
2014 - 2014
Coaching with children between 5-8 years old, I helped create a fun environment where children and parents could bond over soccer, helping children whose parents did not attend the program, and making sure they would all enjoy playing the game.
AYSO VIP Soccer Program, Assistant Coach for Children with Intellectual Disabilities
2013 - 2014
This volunteer service gave me the opportunity to work with children aged 5-18 with mental disabilities, creating drills, guiding the children through the drills, and keeping the children motivated and having fun.
