I'm a first year arts student in UCD, currently studying English, history and Irish Studies (Basically Irish history so far, moving into cultural aspects next semester)
I'm giving Junior Cert English and history grinds at all levels.
I can offer leaving cert grinds however I would need to know what you in particular are studying with your class etc. as I may not be have read/studied the material you're covering with your teacher.
I am also offering business grinds at Leaving Cert level only (And only business, not accounting or economics!) I've done electives in business in college and throughout my Leaving Cert I never achieved less then a B grade in the subject.
I know there's a lot of qualified teachers and much more experienced people here advertising but seeing as it was only last year that I did the leaving, I remember what school is like very well!
Favourable rates also!
I'm offering grinds in Swords and surrounding villages (Oldtown, Rolestown etc etc.) and I will only give grinds in peoples houses!
Please email: for more information. Chances are I will not see if PM here!
Best of luck everyone

I'm giving Leaving and Junior cert English and History in-house grinds in the Dublin. I achieved an A1 in English and an B1 in History (which I also study in University).
I can provide references from one student who I am currently giving grinds to.

Why choose me over other grinds teachers?
I'm a student and I just completed the Leaving cert so I am well aware of what is required and the stresses associated with exams, furthermore I have a first hand experience of the majority of the course.
I not only will provide student-tailored tutorials, I also will give any relevant subject material.
I will charge a competitive rate (depending on travel) - contact for further details.

PM if interested.

Maths Accounting Economics French!

My name is Simon, and I'm a first year student of Business and Law in UCD. Having just finished the leaving cert myself, and receiving 565 points, I know oh too well the hardships of sixth year and of exam pressures. I commenced giving official grinds for leaving cert maths at the start of the 2013 academic year and aim to expand on this with other subjects in which I also did well.

In Higher Maths I received an A1, and then built upon this with the module "Maths for Business"
In Higher Economics I got an A2, and will only improve as my degree involves a high level of both micro and macro economics.
In Higher Accounting I also got an A2, after also getting an A2 in the mocks this was a bit disappointing albeit.
In Higher French I received an A1 and the Award for French from my secondary school, although I was not fluent I maintained a high standard and proficiency.
In Applied Maths I received an A2 and will be available to assist with the following topics: Linear Motion, Relative Velocity, Projectiles, Connected Particles, Collisions, Hydrostatics, and Differential Equations
Tutoring Experience:

My teaching experience is relatively minor, limited maths grinds for 2 leaving cert students in 5th and 6th year since the start of this year. However both students have expressed satisfaction and are available as referees.

I am an active member of the student legal service in UCD, a free legal service given by students to students on matters usually concerning tenant law or commercial disputes. Although not exactly teaching, the SLS provides training to aid the explanation of complex legal matters in a clear, concise, and non-condescending manner. A skill which transfers well to giving grinds.
Approach to Grinds:

As a student myself, I utilise an approachable and friendly method of 1 to 1 grinds. Having analysed past papers and pasterns of questions I also try to give an understanding of the paper itself and what parts of the courses and of chapters are of crucial importance, whether you want your pass, or your A.

All rates are affordable and negotiable depending on ease of access and intensity of the grinds.

Available to work in South Dublin City, preferably near UCD on weekdays, with a flexible time table, and in Waterford City on most weekends.
