For 28 years John Conneely English Classes has been an important part of students’ lives in Co Galway and Co Clare, helping them to maximise their grades in both the Leaving and Junior Certificate examinations.
The focus has always been on teaching students to understand the questions asked and to format answers to the questions.
Each student’s progress is monitored by a short 17 minute question at the end of each session. Students use the content of the session to answer the question and each answer is carefully graded. The answer is returned with a copy of a sample answer to the question, which illustrates how the question might be approached. This formula has helped many students to improve their grades.
Handouts at each session provide the student with the material necessary for attempting questions but it is the student’s ability to write an answer that is crucial for the exams. This is why doing a question at the end of each session is so important.
This focus on the techniques of answering questions and of working in small groups develops the confidence of students in their ability to cope with the examination papers and improves their results.
John Conneely English Classes looks forward to welcoming the examination students of 2018 to sessions, confident that they will benefit from the experience like so many students have done over the past 28 years.
