What Parents & Students Say
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.
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.
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.

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.
