The most difficult part of the leaving certificate is that the fact that you have to focus on so many different subjects at once, from languages to science to practical work, and this can be very stressful. It can be hard to focus on one subject in particular if you are trying to understand a concept or complete homework in another. Although everyone has their favourites, and subjects they find easy, there are also ones that we need to spend more time on, and have problems with.
Tutoring can be a good option for those of you that are finding it hard to keep up with a subject, in this case accounting, it can be really worthwhile finding your own private teacher who can identify the best way for you to ace your leaving certificate! These private lessons are also referred to as “grinds” in Ireland. No matter how difficult a particular subject is, there is always a way to simplify it, and having your own tutor who can spend time with you and go at your own pace is very beneficial!
