Junior Certificate English Grinds

English Grinds

At Nenagh Tutorial, we offer Junior Certificate English Grinds for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students in the junior cert cycle. Our teachers break down the English subject into its fundamentals, so the student will understand the subject. We focus on the aspects of English where the student needs help.

Our English grinds can be delivered person to person at our school in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary or delivered via a Zoom or Teams video call.

If the student chooses the person to person English grind, he/she is required to follow the latest Covid – 19 restrictions.

  • Students must sanitise hands upon entry to the room.
  • Face coverings will be in line with guidelines set out by the Department of Education and Science.

Cost of the English grinds are €45 for a 1 hour grind.

The student is required to bring their text books and a refill pad with them to the grind.
