About us - Maths & English tuition
Maths and English tuition is at the heart of what we do at Emerald Education, Donegal. In fact, education has always been at the centre of my life. As a child, I loved school and dreamed of being a teacher, lining my toys up for their daily lessons! I graduated and took up my first teaching role in 1993, developing my knowledge and understanding of how children learn throughout the next decade. I was promoted to deputy headship in 2000 and gained a greater insight into educational management. Exactly 30 years on from when I took up my first teaching post, I completed my Masters degree in Advanced Education in 2023.
A little about Elaine
Being a mum of three daughters, I wanted them to get the best from me, just like I give to all my students. I left the school system in 2010 and started tutoring, giving me a better work-life balance and more time with my family.
Emerald Education came into being in 2016, when we relocated to the beautiful coastal town of Bundoran, County Donegal, in North-West Ireland. A year later, I added the option of learning online and began teaching children all over the world. Since then, I have had the pleasure of working with students from Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Portugal, USA, South Africa, Russia, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Iraq, Qatar, Malaysia and Taiwan.
We offer Maths & English tuition for students aged 5-18. Our exam revision classes have helped students gain confidence and improve their grades. Unlike the methods used in some other tuition/grinds centres, our unique tailor-made approach ensures students get the extra support in exactly the right places to help them succeed. Our support for students with dyslexia and dyscalculia is well known, with many students attending our classes to learn new strategies and build self-confidence. I love being able to work with students both online and at the centre, knowing that we can make a big difference to them. It is amazing to see them developing their skills, knowledge and confidence and watching them succeed.
