I went to McGinn Tuition Centre from September of my Leaving Cert. year for English and Maths grinds. The teachers there were very helpful and they really encouraged me . The notes I got were fantastic and I went on to get an A in both subjects which I was absolutely delighted with. Thanks again to everyone at McGinn’s.

I was struggling with Honours maths in 5th year, my teacher was suggesting Pass but I got a grind with Mr. McGinn and I thought it was excellent. I actually enjoyed going to the grind and I got a B1 in the Leaving Cert. I got homework every week which at the time I thought was tough but it really paid off. I’d definitely recommend going to McGinn Tuition Centre. Thanks Mark.

Thanks so much to my Physics tutor in McGinn Tuition Centre . I was lost when I started and you helped to clear it all up for me. You made me learn my definitions off by heart and I found the tests you gave us a great motivation. I really liked the small groups and thanks for answering all my questions so patiently. Keep up the great work , by the way I got an A1 which I still can’t believe.

My son went to McGinn Tuition Centre in his Junior Cert. year for Irish and Maths grinds. I met with Mark McGinn first and had a very informative chat about what the grinds were all about. I was very happy with everthing and booked my son in . He loved going to his grinds and I was very impressed with the high standard of teaching there. I was able to meet with both his teachers any time I needed and it was great to get reports about how everything was going during the year. He got fantastic results in his exams and I will be sending him back for his Leaving Cert.

I went to McGinn Tuition Centre for German grinds and for extra Oral Revision Courses. My teacher was probably the best teacher I ever had, she was really friendly, encouraging and brilliant at explaining , especially the grammar. I got an A1, thanks Maire!
