The Grinds Academy take a completely different approach to education. They assist and guide students on the right road, especially for exam success and with the excellent quality notes and oral material it is definitely an outstanding grinds school. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

  • Shane McHugh

I can vouch from experience that The Grinds Academy will deliver the grade that you are looking for. Very professional with intensive lessons that are very rewarding. I couldn’t recommend The Grinds Academy more. Top class!

  • Dylan Boyle

It’s an unrivalled service. Robert singlehandedly brought me from an B3 in Irish to an A2. His oral and essay classes were exceptional and I felt very prepared going into the real exam knowing what to expect. Overall, it was topclass and my only complaint is that I didn’t do more classes with him.

  • Rebecca Gilligan

Robert was the reason I got the points I needed in my leaving cert. I started the grinds at Christmas of Leaving Cert year in Irish and English and it was so worth it. Robert brought me from a C1 in Irish to an A2 and he also brought me up in English. I would hugely recommend going to Galway Grinds Academy. I learned so much from him.

  • Deirdre McMahon

Fantastic grinds and so well-organised. From January to June I went from being a C student to an A student in Irish.

  • Robert Wall

Roberts grinds classes are without a doubt in a league of their own. His focus on oral work helped me achieve the grades I needed in French and Irish. He brought me from a D3 to a C1 in honours French and I now feel confident enough to pursue it at 3rd level. With Roberts help you will definitely achieve the grades you desire. I highly recommend this academy.
