Past Student Testimonials


Exam Success. We are very experienced and experts at what we do. We forensically examine past papers, we get to know our students and we use a developmental approach. All teachers are fully qualified, state examiners, vastly experienced and members of the Teaching Council Of Ireland.


Unlike any other school, students receive a clear course outline for each subject for the year, which clearly outlines what exactly is on and when. This focuses attention and breaks each exam down into bite-size chunks.


All students receive Top Class Notes and Sample Answers with every lesson. A clear outline of what will be covered and guided assignments ensures students are as prepared as possible for the state exams. All students receive supplementary revision videos throughout the academic term to assist with revision.


The vast majority of students attend more than 1 grind and avail of excellent discounts. Our Monthly classes cut down the amount of time traveling to classes also.




We provide tuition in English, Irish & French, subjects that need a lot of attention. All three subjects are very subjective. We ensure students are enabled to stand out from the crowd and succeed in their respective exams.
