3rd Year/Junior Cert
Getting a firm foundation in 3rd year Irish is crucial to doing well at Leaving Cert level. This is because Irish is a cumulative subject whereby topics and concepts build upon those that were previously taught. So, if your child has fallen behind in a particular area, they may struggle to catch up unless the root cause of the issue is addressed. Early intervention is key to ensuring continued success.
Our 3rd year Junior Cert Irish grinds will help students 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 feedback and support. Due to our small class sizes, we offer a student-led curriculum that’s guided by the needs and abilities of each student in the group.

I did Maths grinds with Elaine for my QQI level 5 maths exam that was coming up. Elaine’s tuition was second to none and she was always there via email, text or phone to answer my queries whenever I needed her which was so helpful. Elaine had the poise and dedication to persevere with me throughout the 6 weeks of tutoring. She made me feel at ease and encouraged me to ask any questions I had at any time. I couldn’t recommend Elaine enough to anybody out there who is struggling with Maths. Her tuition is fantastic.
Chloe McKenzie, Third-Level Maths Student
I am currently a third level student and completed grinds with Elaine when doing my QQI level 5 in maths. Elaine is a fantastic tutor. She not only understood the level of maths I had to do but had the ability and skills to ensure I was able to follow the syllabus and produce the level of maths I was required to do. Elaine made me feel at ease at all times and encouraged me to ask questions whenever I needed. She went beyond her duty by keeping in contact with me outside the grinds and made her self available at all times by either phone, text or email. I couldn’t recommend Elaine enough to any students out there as I received such a positive experience.
Ciara Lawless, Third-Level Maths Student
I have found it extremely helpful leading up to the exams getting valid information and learning skills from Elaine about how to structure my exam as well as learning new phrases and vocabulary along the way. The experience has really benefitted my German quite a bit and I know it will stand to me in my exams. I would have been at a complete loss if it weren’t for the guidance and constant revision of oral topics in preparation for my oral exams with Elaine. Elaine is a fantastic, motivational teacher with a strong passion for the language who puts a lot of time and effort into her classes. The teaching she has given to me to improve every aspect of my exams to allow me to achieve my best result is unparalleled.
Aodhán, Leaving Cert German Student
Overall very helpful course. It was great to get a clear, concise run down of grammar. Testing me with questions in each session was great, as it motivated me to look over notes outside of class. The more questions the better! The course being a little longer might be helpful too, but as it stands, it was very useful.
Eoin, Leaving Cert German Grammar Course
When I first joined Elaine’s higher level maths class I was really struggling in my class in school and was thinking of dropping to ordinary level after only getting H8 in my mocks. My teacher had advised me to drop to ordinary multiple times but after a few classes with Elaine I had improved so much I wasn’t worried. I honestly don’t think I would have been able to pass maths if it wasn’t for this class and Elaine’s amazing teaching. I am very grateful for all the help I got in achieving a H4 in my paper.
Leaving Cert Maths Student
I would without a doubt recommended Elaine for grinds, her focus on exam questions from the very start really helped me to grasp the layout and techniques needed to succeed in Higher Level Maths. Taking on grinds from the beginning of the year was key to securing my H2 as it kept the the workload and stress spread out allowing time to gauge each topic fully. I couldn’t recommend enough.
