Pearse has over 15 years experience in secondary schools and prior to that he taught English and Irish as second languages in Madrid. He is the co-author of the Junior Cycle textbooks series Croí na Gaeilge (EDCO) and the co-author of the revision notes Junior Cycle Success. Pearse was awarded first class honours for his Masters Thesis to DCU outlining theories on how to improve second language proficiency. He has worked with the State Examinations Commission and is currently a Cúntóir Teagaisc in Fiontar agus Scoil na Gaeilge which is part of DCU.
Pearse believes it is essential that students can manipulate their notes and material so as to address the exam head on. This is the overriding issue needed to unlock the new exam format. The ability to respond to pictures, reading comprehension and other multi modal material will be critical for students who wish to excel at this level. The vocabulary and techniques to do this will all be covered in this course. In summary this course will teach you how to read, write and respond as Gaeilge.

Our students love us

A big thank you to Mr O'Leary. His lessons gave me fundamental maths skills, excellent exam tips and advice and confidence in my maths ability. Mr O'Leary's advice, "when you don’t know what to do, do what you know“ helped me to start all exam questions, and that first step led the way to a grade I am so proud of.
Thanks so much to Eoghan for all his support over the last 2 years. Thanks to Eoghan, I got a H2 in the exam. I am delighted.
Can’t thank Eoghan enough for all his help. He answered every question I had and I’m 100% sure, I wouldn’t have got a H1 without his help. Thank you so much.
Highly recommend Mr. O’Leary’s classes. Such a nice person who puts in so much effort to each lesson. He gives time to each student and answers every question! Really good environment in the classes which also encouraged everyone to work hard.
