The Centre in Bishopstown currently provides after school tuition for primary and secondary students between the ages of 6 and 14 and specialises in English, Reading, Spelling, Mathematics and Irish. The Centre provides a unique learning environment where students are taught in small groups of no more than five so that they can receive individual attention. The Centre is equipped with modern computer facilities, enabling students to learn from the excellent English and Maths software available. A wide variety of students attend the Centre. It caters for children who are having difficulty with their schoolwork or have fallen behind as well as children who would like to be challenged further. Students are offered a free assessment and individual programmes of study are devised focusing on the specific needs of each student. Pupils are guided through their work by experienced and fully qualified teachers. James comments, “The Centre exists to support school programmes in core skills. The aim is to improve students’ overall performance in the key skills of English and Mathematics and to build pupils’ self confidence.” Classes run from 3.30p.m. and 5.00p.m. on Monday to Friday and on Saturday mornings and afternoons.
