The People’s College

What I Offer

I have found that one to one tutorials are the most effective, especially in light of the fact that confidence is key to language acquisition.

I cater for groups no larger than five.

I also give tutorials through Skype.


Our son initially struggled badly with oral Irish and Irish grammar and had zero confidence in his own ability. Thanks to Aonghus, our son went from failing ordinary level Irish to getting a C in Honours Irish.

I felt that my teacher in school was going very fast without properly explaining the more complicated bits of Irish grammar and expected us to learn things off-by-heart for the oral exam. Aonghus was a lot more personable and helpful. I was able to tackle the Leaving Cert Honours paper with a lot more confidence than I had before.

I initially hated Irish at school but later, in my forties felt ashamed that I couldn’t speak my own language. I had heard about Aonghus’s class in the People’s College from several folks. I really enjoyed Aonghus’s classes, and learned a lot more than I though I would.
