How it Works

We offer 1-1 and small group tuition (2-4 students) to primary school children in Irish, English and Maths. 

All of our lessons are personalised to suit each child’s specific learning requirements and classes are taught using a variety of multi-sensory, active-based learning approaches.

Primary school children can enrol at any time of the year. Our programmes are 16 weeks long. Each class is one hour long and typically takes place once a week, either live online through Zoom or at our tuition centre in Limerick. Children work with the same teacher each week.

Who Are The Teachers?

Academic Assessments

Primary school pupils are assessed prior to commencing tuition. Using a combination of standardised and diagnostic tests, these assessments identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses in a particular area and allow us to develop a personalised programme of tuition which targets their specific learning requirements. Students are re-assessed at the end of their tuition programme in order to ensure that the learning targets set at the beginning have been achieved. 

Academic assessments are also available to pupils and parents who do not want to commit to a programme of tuition.

Please note that academic assessments are currently only available in English and Maths.
