English can be a tricky subject for many students in Limerick, across Ireland and globally. Some may struggle with writing, grammar, and spelling, and others may be confident writers, but struggle with the heavy literature elements of the Junior and Leaving Cert courses. That’s completely normal - with two three-hour exams for the Leaving Cert, it can seem like an intimidating paper to sit on.

Premier Tuition Centre
Based in Castletroy, just outside Limerick city, the Premier Tuition Centre offers tutoring starting at primary school level, right through to Leaving Certificate Higher Level English. They offer both in-person and online courses, as well as individual English grinds.
Premier Tuition Centre (formerly known as Fountain of Knowledge), has been providing educational services for both primary and secondary school students for over 14 years in Limerick.
Every class is taught by experienced teachers. Their class sizes are small – with no more than 4 students. They also offer one-to-one tuition to those who feel they need it, to ensure that every student receives the attention they need.
PTC personalises its classes to suit each student’s unique learning requirements. For primary school students, this is achieved by administering standardised and diagnostic assessments at the beginning and end of their courses, and for secondary school students, they conduct consultations before the beginning of courses, to give the tutor the information they need to tailor the classes to suit their students’ learning needs.
“My daughter just completed 4 week grinds for Leaving Cert. Subiya was an amazing tutor. She has given my daughter back her confidence. I would highly recommend Premier Tuition. Thank you Anne Marie and Subiya for all your help.” - Avril Jones, parent
“I went there and they were amazing. I wouldn't have passed my Maths or English exams, only for them. I would really recommend going here.” - Siobhan Kinkead, past pupil

Limerick Tutorial College
Limerick Tutorial College was founded in 1985. Initially, the College was founded to help tutor Leaving Certificate students who were having difficulty with specific subjects, running weekly subject-specific grind classes as well as Christmas and Easter bootcamps. In 1988, they launched a full-time one-year Leaving Cert programme for students who needed to repeat their exams, and two years later they launched their school for 5th and 6th-year students to attend full-time.
Today, Limerick Tutorial College runs as a full-time private school, as well as offering tutoring, weekly grinds, supervised study, and intensive exam revision courses at Christmas, Easter, and orals. They offer a range of subjects, from English to Maths and Biology to Music.
Students who go to Limerick Tutorial College for English tutoring will benefit from knowing they are attending a school that has over 30 years experience in helping students deliver great exam results. Students who attended the College full-time to repeat their Leaving Certificate in 2019 increased their points total by an average of 110. Those who attend their grinds and revision courses get access to the same teachers and tutors.
“Limerick Tutorial College is an independent second-level college with a unique perspective. Not only do we expect our students to try their very best in everything they do, we also expect ourselves to do likewise. The College’s primary aim is to provide the expertise and guidance necessary so that each student, irrespective of ability, can achieve his/her potential.”
