TUTORING ($15/half-hour Teacher based in USA)(15 EUR/half-hour Teacher based in Ireland) – For Members, we do both 1 on 1 and 2 on 1 tutoring to help you or you and a friend get more individualized instruction in the Irish language and more time with the language. Tutoring has a bit more flexibility with regards to scheduling and rescheduling as needed. Typically we ask for pre-payment of 5 or 10 lessons upon agreement of dates and times for tutoring. Email us if you have any questions.
