All Maths Tutor Sessions will be run by ACE founder, Joe McCormack. Limited places are available so be sure to book early as places will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.

ACE Maths Tuition, founded by Secondary School Teacher and Educational Author Joe McCormack recommenced classes for 3rd and 6th years in Navan Education Centre and Ratoath Community Centre in September 2020. After an Initial assessment and a short period of teaching the core areas at each level, the focus of the tuition turned to exam preparation and the practice and teaching of past exam questions similar to the standard and detail presented in Joe’s Junior and Leaving Certificate ACE Solution books.

In class, each student is taught about the importance of words, layout and style on their upcoming Maths exam paper and will grow in confidence to tackle the most detailed and intricate long questions from past papers. Joe’s philosophy of teaching is:

“Being fully familiar with the words that appear on past papers combined with being exam smart and confident is the secret to success in Maths.”

Note: Online LIVE Classes may replace in-person tuition in line with Government health regulations – The safety of Staff and Students will be ACE’s priority.

Students will receive the best notes, resources, handouts, homework and challenging questions in hard copy and by e-mail. These will provide them with that extra bit of detail in order to grasp complex topics. They can also request specific notes on areas of difficulty for them, which will be forwarded on. Students will be empowered to obtain a Maths grade above what they actually expect to achieve.

Parents will be full Included in the process from the Initial meeting to regular ongoing e-mails. Topics covered during the Junior Cycle classes will include Algebra, Area and Volume, Arithmetic, Trigonometry, Geometry and Functions. Leaving Cert students can look forward to clear explanations in topics such as Algebra, Complex Numbers, Co-ordinate Geometry (Line & Circle), Statistics, Number theory, Geometry, Probability and complex long wordy questions among others.

New students who register for a full term (Jan-April) will also receive a free copy of Joe’s exam study guide ‘How to ACE the Leaving Certificate‘ for all subjects. This book contains key insights into how to study efficiently, setting up a ‘Lifestyle Study Timetable’ and preparing in the best possible way for any exam. It is suitable for students from 2nd year upwards and is written with short paragraphs and simple language.

Students can join Joe’s class at any stage during the year. Joe’s full business profile is available on his home page.

“Joe – I cannot thank you enough for changing Clancy’s mindset – haven’t had Issues in a long time – she is just getting on with it with your help!! It’s a relief for us … and especially her to feel confident to work through the problems. I don’t care what grade Clancy gets in the Mocks – she came out of Maths yesterday feeling positive … she got stuck, went on, came back & remembered. You have taken away her fears and for that alone I thank you sincerely.” Rgds, Paula.

“Hi there, My name is Edel Wyer.  I would just like to recommend and give appreciation to Joe McCormack Ace Solutions.  My daughter Sophia  attended his higher level Maths course in Ratoath Community Centre this year and  we both would highly recommend Joe.  Sophia said Joe makes complex Maths seem easy with the tools and patience he used in class.  Joe put a lot of focus on exam papers and also kept the students all informed through email and text messages on a weekly basis.  Joe has also created Ace solution books that simplifies Maths solutions. I feel Sophia really benefited from Joe’s class because he gave 110 percent in everything he taught. If you need help in 2020/2021 with Maths grinds then as a parent and Sophia as a past student we would highly recommend Joe.   We would like to wish Joe the very best of luck for the future.  Thanks so much Joe for everything. :-) “

“My daughter was struggling with Maths as she had a weak teacher in 2nd year. I knew I needed to get her help if she was to get back on track with all she had missed. I found Joe through a recommendation. From day one my daughter really liked him, his approach and clarity around the problems he helped them solve.  Joe was consistent and when we hit Covid he was quick to move online so the pupils missed  nothing. The proof of the power of Joe’s classes showed in my daughters results. She went from 40% in her nd year summer exams to 82% in her junior cert mocks. Can’t say better than that! Highly recommended.”

“I’m always speaking highly of your business and I know Oskar found it helped him immensely to grasp Maths again from having totally lost all interests. I will always recommend your business and my second son Erik who is going into 5th year is doing honours Maths and has already started to talk about taking grinds in 6th year obviously availing of your service. 

Thanks for your dedication and help throughout this last year and I wish you all the best in the future. I’m sure I will see you around.”

“My son Dean attended tuition for leaving cert higher level Maths as he was struggling with this subject and not confident in it. Joe was absolutely brilliant; he explained, practiced and gave homework for him to work on. This was corrected and anything my son did not understand or got incorrect, Joe patiently went through. He also had access to e-mail Joe outside of class with any issues and Joe always responded. Joe also recommended books to help at home which my son found brilliant. Joe was very patient and clear and went through questions with great detail and explanation. He is a gentleman to deal with and only wants to get the best for his students. Leaving Cert done now and my son came out of both Maths exams very confident. Thank you Joe for your patience, knowledge and time and the best of luck with your new venture. We would highly recommend Joe and thank him for sharing his knowledge and time with Dean. Many thanks”

I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. My youngest son Oisin is going into 2nd year in Sept. I would be very interested in any developments that will help with Jnr Cert.

The e-mailed home work was also helpful to help consolidate learning. Thank you”

Joe’s willingness to answer ALL questions, even through direct messaging, is a credit to his dedication and his willingness to help students be successful.

“After many years out of the education system, I took the leap and returned to Higher Education. One of the fears I had was Maths as although I knew the basics, Fractions and above scared the hell out of me. Without Joe’s support at VTOS I would not have gone and successfully completed a Business Honours Degree as the first year of College was all about Maths. Joe simplified matters for me which enabled me to look at the bigger picture. I always felt Maths was complicated, after attending Joe’s classes the world of Maths made sense. I would encourage anybody to attend his classes or be mentored by Joe, as without his support and simplifying methods “only one knows” if i would have pursued what I set out to do.”

“Helpful and Refreshing” Rating: 7/10

“My daughter Victoria joined Joe’s class as she needed extra support for her Leaving Cert Higher Maths Exam. Joe was very supportive and motivating and as a result my daughter gained so much confidence prior to her Maths exam. The support and resources received were more than adequate.

“Before I attended Joe’s Maths class, I was struggling to keep up with my class. My teacher in school was going at a very fast pace and i couldn’t keep up with the work and as a result I was getting bad results in my tests. Joe helped me become more confident when doing Maths and he took the time to clearly explain everything to me. He made learning fun and i always looked forward to his classes. He also helped me outside of his class by sending me notes on topics I wasn’t familiar with. I recommend ACE tuition because I have improved so much and I am now confident in my Maths work and I am finally happy with my test results. ” Rating 10/10.

“Iwin and I are very grateful for your support with Maths Tuition since this academic year.
As a parent, I found Joe very supportive and easy to talk with. Joe was available to guide my son to navigate through past Maths questions which gave him the confidence he so needed in the subject. Although he didn’t get to sit the final exams due to the covid 19 pandemic, we are very grateful for the level of confidence achieved. Thank you again.” Josephine Egbon.
