Campbeltown based tutor Kerry McGeachy has been highly commended in the 2016 HISA student awards in numerous categories including: Most Inspiring Lecturer, Most Engaging Video Conference Tutor, Best PAT, and Best Assessment Feedback.
Kerry joined Argyll College in 2005 teaching various Early Education and Childcare Courses. Despite combining her demanding teaching role with the care of her two small children, she always goes the extra mile for her students, often being in touch with them well after classes have finished.
Kerry undertook a BA in Child and Youth Studies at Argyll College UHI completing this in 2009, and in 2015 attained a Teaching Qualification in Further Education; Kerry has always shown an immense talent for the difficult task of teaching by VC – a skill that is greatly appreciated by her students – here’s what they have to say:
‘’The way in which Kerry teaches through VC is great as we have many class discussions which many think would not work due to being on video call, however with our class we can have great debates and we all have great inputs. ‘’
‘’When marking assessments Kerry is always really good for giving us lots of feedback to improve our writing and I now feel my writing is at a much higher standard feel ready to start my degree after the summer. ‘’
‘’As my PAT Kerry is always there for me to talk to, whether it involves assessments, placements, work stress or even issues with my personal life, she is always there to listen even late at night or on the weekend’’
‘’As soft as she is, she is not one to be messed with and takes deadlines and word counts very seriously!’’
‘’Kerry is the best teacher I have ever had and she is the reason that I come to college.’’
Well done Kerry!
