The Dublin School of Grinds provides weekly 2nd Year grinds in Maths, which are 75 minutes in duration and are held in a class-based environment. Our grinds give students a head-start before they move to the Junior Certificate in 3rd Year.

Weekly grinds also include a special one-on-one service to all students, for a period of time before or after every class. This is a specialised, individual service, which we encourage all our students to take advantage of.

The foundation of our weekly grinds is ‘exam focus’. Our teachers strip away the unnecessary sections of each subject and focus solely on the core, examinable material, the aim of which is increasing students’ exam performance.

Our 2nd Year maths teacher is a Project Maths expert and is known for his ability to relate to young students and to give kids a new lease of life and confidence in their Maths.

Grinds commence the week of Monday 4th September 2017. If you have any queries, feel free to call us in the office on 01-442 4442.
