“Everything a student needs, all in one place.”

For one payment of  €79  €29, we provide each student with ALL TWELVE of the following for the entire school year.
(Membership includes direct student-teacher interaction with features 2 and 3!)

In addition to on-demand videos, the primary other feature of most membership websites is non-interactive notes/slides. 

In contrast, our members gain access to all of our interactive DIGITAL LESSONS, allowing students to learn the subject more effectively.

Each of our lessons highlight the following:

1) KEY POINTS
The most important parts of the lesson.

2) CAUSES OF CONFUSION
Common mistakes that students make.

3) EXAM TIPS
Tips to give students that extra edge on the exam!

Rather than only having a teacher to help you while in school, wouldn’t it be great if you had access to a teacher while you are studying at home as well?

Well, we provide exactly that!

For every school day of the year, our teacher, Dr. Ciarán Kenny, offers live video support from 4pm using what we call TEACHER LIVE!.

Each school day, members can request a video call on Google Meet (Google’s version of Zoom), ask their question using their microphone, and then watch as Mr. Kenny answers that question then and there using his digital whiteboard. Nice!

Need help outside of Teacher Live! hours? We got your covered!

Regardless of whether it is the weekend, a bank holiday etc., students can continue to get the support that they need.

Using our TEACHER CHAT feature (shown in the bottom right), students can send us questions at any point during the school year. Within 24 hours (typically much sooner!), we will then answer that question with text, images and/or videos when necessary!

In addition to our free past paper video walkthroughs, we also include lots of additional ON-DEMAND VIDEOS with our membership!

For example, each our mock exams not only come with written answers and solutions, but also video walkthroughs!

We also provide what we refer to as KNOWLEDGE CHECKS at the end of every digital lesson.

These quizzes consist of quick-fire questions that give students immediate feedback as to whether that digital lesson “clicked” or not.

If that lesson clicked, students can then proceed to our corresponding practice questions for that lesson. If not, rather than jumping straight into attempting questions that they may not be ready for, students can instead first turn to one of our other features to help with their understanding, e.g. Teacher Live!

The only visual aids that are provided to students in a schoolbook are static images.

In contrast, we provide vibrant ANIMATIONS throughout our digital lessons.

These animations offer a more effective way of visually learning a new concept and of keeping a student engaged.

We provide our members with just as many PRACTICE QUESTIONS as found in a schoolbook.

As in a schoolbook, these questions are of varying difficulty, both at Higher Level and at Ordinary Level, thereby allowing students to build up their understanding towards exam-type questions.

Unlike a schoolbook, as described in our “Layered Solutions” feature below, students can assess their understanding of each question in three different ways: with answers, solutions and walkthroughs!

We provide students with our own MOCK EXAMS that are exclusive to our members.

Our mock exam questions can be sorted both by exam and by topic!

Our MOCK EXAM SOLUTIONS consist of three different methods for students to check their understanding of each question.

1) ANSWERS

These allow students to quickly check if they did the question correctly.

2) SOLUTIONS

These show students what should they write down when answering the question.

3) VIDEO WALKTHROUGHS

These offer explanations as to where the solutions come from.

As always, even in the unlikely event that students still do not understand a particular question,  they can also get additional support on Teacher Live!

Each of our practice questions include LAYERED SOLUTIONS in the form of three different methods for students to check their understanding:

1) ANSWERS
These allow students to quickly check if they did the question correctly.

2) SOLUTIONS
These show students what they should write down when answering the question.

3) WALKTHROUGHS
These explain to students where each solution comes from.

Therefore, unlike a schoolbook, not only do we provide the answers at the back of a schoolbook, not only do we provide the solutions found in a teacher’s handbook, but we also include walkthroughs, i.e. what a teacher would say if they explained the solution to you.

Can you imagine having answers, solutions and walkthroughs to every single exercise question in your schoolbook? Well, we provide exactly that!

We make no assumptions about a student’s understanding of Junior Cycle maths, whether they did Higher Level or Ordinary Level maths etc.

Instead, any time we feel that some students may first require a quick recap, we provide that J.C. MATHS MATERIAL content in a tab at the start of the corresponding digital lesson.

We provide concise REVISION SHEETS that allow students to quickly confirm that they understand all of the essentials for every topic.

As with our digital lessons, each sheet comprises a collection of the most important points of each topic in three different categories.

1) KEY POINTS
The most important parts of the topic.

2) CAUSES OF CONFUSION
Common mistakes that students make.

3) EXAM TIPS
Tips to give students that extra edge on the exam!

An example of such a revision sheet is provided for free below!

Note: Our 2023/24 memberships are now closed.

Instead, all students who sign up to our final revision course will get a membership included for free.

The majority of other membership websites are significantly more expensive and focus primarily on just two features: videos and notes/slides.

In particular, such memberships typically include little (if any) direct student-teacher interaction.

In contrast, we offer such interactions with a qualified teacher every school day via our Teacher Live! and Teacher Chat features, in addition to offering many other features that are unique to our website.

We shall group features into five categories, ranked from highest to lowest value.

A) DIRECT TEACHER SUPPORT

L.C. MATHS


2) TEACHER LIVE! + 3) TEACHER CHAT


Teacher Live! gives our students to get instant video support from a qualified teacher live on stream every school day.

We shall generously value this unique feature at just 20 cent per day, i.e. roughly €50 per school year.

Teacher Chat is, in a sense, a “backup” to Teacher Live! for other days, allowing students to also get direct teacher support but not instantly.

We shall therefore instead value this feature at €10 per school year.


TOTAL VALUE: €60

Other Websites


The overwhelming majority of other membership websites include only static resources, i.e. resources that just sit there and generate revenue. Dynamic resources such as Teacher Live! would cause a dramatic loss of revenue and are therefore typically not included with memberships.

At best, a small number of websites will instead offer a “watered down” version of Teacher Chat in which they will answer your question within some unspecified time window.


TOTAL VALUE: €0 – €10

B) SCHOOLBOOK + WORKBOOK

L.C. MATHS


1) DIGITAL LESSONS + 7) PRACTICE QUESTIONS + 10) LAYERED SOLUTIONS


In essence, these three features together correspond to the content included in both a typical schoolbook and workbook.

Although our digital lessons are much more detailed than the chapters of a schoolbook, and although workbooks typically only contain answers rather than layered solutions, we will again be generous and value these three features together at the price of a typical schoolbook and workbook.


TOTAL VALUE: €40

Other Websites


The overwhelming majority of other membership websites typically only include (less detailed) digital notes or slides rather than digital lessons.

Likewise, there is typically an absence of solutions to full exercise set questions (if those questions exist at all). Instead, websites typically resort to only creating solutions to self-corrected quizzes (see below) as these can be created with a lot less effort.


TOTAL VALUE: €5 – €20

C) ENHANCEMENTS

L.C. MATHS


5) QUIZZES + 6) ANIMATIONS + 11) J.C. MATHS MATERIAL


Our self-corrected quizzes allow students to track their own progress.

Our animations allow students to more easily understand the corresponding material.

Our J.C. maths material ensures that students don’t fall behind if they for how to do something from their Junior Cycle.

Although very beneficial, these features take significantly less time to create compared with e.g. digital lessons.

For simplicity, we will therefore value each of them at €5 each.


TOTAL VALUE: €15

Other Websites


Most other membership websites include quizzes, some other membership websites include J.C. maths material and the overwhelming majority don’t include animations.


TOTAL VALUE: €0 – €10

D) REVISION

L.C. MATHS


8) MOCK EXAMS + 9) MOCK EXAM SOLUTIONS + 12) REVISION SHEETS


Mock exams can be purchased for a couple of euro each.

Likewise, as revision books can be purchased in a bookstore for approximately €10, revision sheets should also have a value of only a only a couple of euro.

Together, we shall value our revision material at €12.


TOTAL VALUE: €12

Other Websites


Many membership websites include all three of the above, some only include, mock exam papers, some only include revision sheets and some included none at all.


TOTAL VALUE: €0 – €12

E) VIDEOS

L.C. MATHS


4) ON-DEMAND VIDEOS


We include on-demand videos across our website, including video solutions to practice questions, mock exams etc.

Other websites typically make such videos their main selling point, and for good reason – they are the quickest and easiest resource to create.

For example, 50 hours of content can quite easily be recorded in just a single month (including prepping, editing and uploading).

That content can then be used to either 1) create a 50 hour “on-demand course” or 2) to be chopped into hundreds (or even thousands) of short videos.

If we fairly assume that the video creator deserves to earn €10,000 for that month’s work, and if we fairly assume that those videos are watched by 10,000 students in the years (or even decades) that they are made available, those 50 hours of videos are valued at just €1.


TOTAL VALUE: €1

Other Websites


In this case, we will be generous and allow for the possibility that some websites have five times as much video content as we do (even though we have no evidence for this to be the case).


TOTAL VALUE: €1 – €5

FINAL VALUE

L.C. MATHS

€128

OTHER WEBSITES

€6 – €57

In summary, the primary benefits on other websites typically focus on the cheapest categories above while also including only a sprinkle of the other more expensive categories.

We offer our memberships cheaper than what we believe they are worth as we are completely satisfied on the income that we generate at that lower price point. 

In contrast, other websites take the opposite approach. It is instead our opinion that they offer significantly less benefits at what we consider to be significantly inflated prices.

Taught in small groups, and includes a FREE membership!

We offer a course consisting of 30 weekly classes spread throughout the school year.

1) Small Class Sizes

Classes are taught in small groups of a maximum of eight students.

2) Live & Recorded

Each of our live classes will be recorded so that they may be rewatched on-demand.

3) Includes a FREE Membership

This effectively makes our classes approximately €7 each!!!
6th Years additionally gain access to recordings of our 5th Year classes to help them with revision!

2023/24 CALENDAR

To join our weekly classes, simply click on your preferred timeslot!

We believe that there are five key elements associated with effective online classes:

1) Qualifications: Are all of the classes given by qualified, experienced teachers?

2) Class Size: Are the class sizes significantly smaller than in a free public school (≤ 12)?

3) Price: Are the classes significantly cheaper than one-to-one grinds (≤ €12)?

4) Benefits: Are more than 75% of our membership features included with the classes?

5) Support: Can I get additional instant video help from my class teacher every school day?

Although we consider these five qualities to be the bare minimum as to what should be expected from online classes, you may be surprised to find that the majority of other popular educational support websites only satisfy one of these requirements!
