Limerick Tutorial College
Limerick Tutorial College was founded in 1985, initially to help tutor Leaving Certificate students who were having difficulty with specific subjects, running weekly grind classes as well as Christmas and Easter courses. In 1988, they launched their full-time one year Leaving Certificate programme for students who needed to repeat their examinations, and two years later they launched their full-time school for 5th and 6th year students.
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.
