As one of the pioneers of online tutoring in Ireland, I have methods proven successful for over a decade and thus highly suitable for tutoring during the disruption caused by the coronavirus.
1. RECENT STUDENT RESULTS; STUDENT REFERENCES.
My students’ Leaving Cert. results for 2018-2019 were as follows: four H1s, seven H2s, four H3s, one H4. Junior Cycle: two Distinctions, three Higher Merits and three Merits. Please see my profile on this site for my dozens of 5-star reviews.
2. Book me as your tutor and then deduct this amount from your first payment to me for tuition. My first lesson is free. The price after that is 47 euro per hour.
3. Please note that due to high demand, I am currently only available for one-to-one online lessons. These proceed precisely the way face-to-face tuition would, except that with the use of Google Docs we are able to go through student work line-by-line in a much more detailed way than is possible face-to-face.
4. As the tuitions field is so rife with unprofessionalism, I should also emphasise that I am extremely reliable and punctual.
My tutoring summary is as follows: twenty years' of teaching and one-to-one tutoring and editing in the Irish education system, with excellent results for hundreds of students at all levels.
I am also highly skilled and experienced at helping students resolve problems with motivation and study discipline. In fact, if a student is willing to try one simple technique I suggest, I guarantee that they will leave any such problems behind.
Secondary tuitions: as well as focusing in great detail on each subject's syllabus for the examinations, I also offer clear guidance in study skills, stylish and mistake-free essay writing, and exam preparation and technique.
I know the set texts, previous exam papers and the entire syllabus inside-out, and the shortcuts and hacks to guaranteed exam success. The approaches to Junior Cert. and Leaving Cert. that can save students dozens or hundreds of hours of wasted time.
I teach my students which parts of the exam can be answered using prepared essays (the answer may be far more than you think), thus taking much of the pressure off the student come exam day.
I teach students how to easily achieve full marks in Reading Comprehension and for the Unseen texts by analysing previous exam questions in detail and accurately anticipating the types that will come up each year.
I teach Idea, Evidence and Explanation, the one central skill that applies right throughout all English exams, the skill that when practised is guaranteed to achieve an H2 or Higher Merit at the lowest.
Guaranteed? Sound too good to be true?
Get in touch and I'll explain all of this in detail.
Twenty years, at all levels. I have tutored hundreds of students to excellent results. At third level and professional level I have edited hundreds of assignments and other written work into guaranteed A-standard shape, and in certain cases into award-winning shape.
Approach to Grinds:
For secondary students: entirely exam focused lessons: motivation, encouragement, and above all crystal clear guidance given as to what *exactly* the student needs to do to maximise their marks.
Most students enjoy my subjects but what they usually lack is precise knowledge about where marks and gained and lost and how exactly to go about obtaining those marks. I'll help the student do just that. I will also help prepare guaranteed H1-or Distinction standard answers for the appropriate parts of the exam.
Cancellation policy: in the highly unlikely case that I ever cancel a lesson with less than one week's notice, your next lesson will be free. In return I ask to be notified of cancellations one week in advance. If less notice is given, I would ask to be paid for the tuition.

Thanks and regards .mary

Sean also focused on exam preparation and how best to structure and answer each question type. Sean corrected my son’s work and provided detailed feedback.

Thank you Sean!
Sean is a wonderful teacher, he is experienced and really knows how to teach my son. He is patient and has his technique of getting the student engaged. I am impressed.
Sean is both extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He is always enthusiastic and willing to help. Thanks to Sean my confidence in the subject has improved immensely. His positive style of teaching has managed to make English one of my favourite subjects.
I would definitely recommend Sean as a tutor for any student who wishes to get an A1.
I will definitely continue our Skype arrangement in English and also try to expand to other subjects. Can't recommend him more highly.
