About Education in Cork

Cork, also known as the “real” capital is the second largest city in Ireland and third largest city by population in Ireland.

A lot of students fear maths because of the way it is taught in their schools. We try to make maths easy for you so that you can sit  your primary, junior cert or leaving cert maths exam being prepped, confident, and ready for questions!

Still Have Questions?

Maths grinds are an after school support to help students understand Maths and excel in their exams. ‘Grinds’ are a unique term used in Ireland. It has the same meaning as ‘tutoring’. Maths grinds can be taught by a qualified teacher or student who excelled in Maths in school. Students from primary, secondary, and third level receive grinds in Ireland.

The Maths Grinds cost €40 per week. The first week is free to try for new students. If students want to continue with grinds, parents pay for the remainder of the term via a Stripe link sent by WhatsApp. For our revision course costs, please check the course page.

Students log in to a Zoom link each week at a set time. Classes consist of a mix of teaching theory and answering exam questions. The tutor shares his/her screen, explains the theory and the group completes exam questions together. The tutor goes through these exam questions with the class, writing down the methods on his/her shared digital whiteboard. All students are engaged, participating and asking questions when needed. All lessons are recorded. Groups are kept to a maximum of 10 students per class.

Yes. We have developed a state examiner designed curriculum for each class/year. We follow as close as possible to what the students are learning in school.

No, we just teach in small groups. However, if students have issues outside of our online grinds, they can use SupportSapp (which is a dedicated WhatsApp group) to ask questions, and we’ll respond with a video on how to solve that problem.
