Tuition Farm’s grind courses run for 16 weeks from January to April for 1 hour each week.

The 16-week course will be followed by a 1 day 5-hour intensive class which will focus on past exam papers.

All lessons are recorded, this is so students can go over past content or catch up on lessons they may have missed.

All lessons are delivered without any interruptions, however, students will be able to ask the tutor questions during the last 15 minutes of the lesson.

Courses start in January and registration will open in December.

The cost of our grinds courses (21 hours tuition) will be €199.




  • Our grinds classes are held online via Zoom.
  • We will email the instructions on how to join our Zoom classes 1 week before the class begins.
  • If you are buying this class for someone else, please include their email address in the “Additional Information” section on checkout.
  • Students should join the class 5-10 minutes before the start time and check they have a good internet connection.
