1st Year

Getting a firm foundation in 1st year Irish is crucial to doing well at Junior Cycle level. This is because Irish is a cumulative subject whereby topics and concepts build upon those that were previously taught. If your child has fallen behind or is struggling to keep up, our personalised 1st year Irish grinds will help them to improve their grades, grow in confidence and reach their full potential.

Classes are delivered live online through Zoom or at our tuition centre in Castletroy Limerick (depending upon availability). There is a MAXIMUM of 5 students in each class which allows the tutor to provide individualised attention and support. All of our students receive comprehensive notes, cheat sheets and memory aids that will benefit them throughout their time in secondary school. For online classes, students receive access to the class recordings for the full academic year. At the end of each term, parents receive a progress report to keep them updated on their child’s participation and development – their success is our priority.
