Hi, and welcome to the grinds section of A.M. Online!
In addition to the grinds that are already included with a membership, we also offer additional small group grinds and one-to-one grinds to any student who feels that they need that extra bit of help with a particular topic in Leaving Cert Applied Maths.
Below, you will find the answers to some of the more common questions that we are asked about our grinds, as well as the booking calendar itself!
Our one-to-one grinds are €30 each and our small group grinds are €10 each.
Typically 50 minutes, but we're not very strict on that.
If Mr. Kenny feels that a few extra minutes will greatly help a student with their understanding, he will gladly keep going!
The exact timeslots for the grinds will be finalised just before they launch in January.
Our grinds typically have the following structure:
Of course, this structure is flexible and may vary depending on the specific issue that the student is having.
Only if a student wants them to be, and only with their parent's/guardian's permission!
A student's privacy is important to us and, in accordance with EU privacy laws, we therefore only record a grind 1) if a student wants us to and 2) if a parent/guardian allows us to.
In the booking form, we therefore specifically ask whether a student would like the grind to be recorded or not.
If the answer is yes, we will then send the student a link to the recording shortly after the completion of the grind which allows the student to both stream and download the grind at their own convenience.
Again, for the sake of privacy, this recording will be unlisted and can therefore only be accessed using the link that we provide.
And don't worry, it will be possible to both stream and download the recording until at least the student's final exam!
Once a timeslot is chosen on the calendar, you will be automatically redirected to the booking page which needs to be completed to reserve that timeslot.
On that page, you will be required to provide the following information:
Our grinds take place on Zoom.
Therefore, if we are yet to install the program/app on your device, we recommend doing so in advance using the link above.
We recommend using a computer, a laptop or a large tablet if possible!
All you'll need is a pen and paper!
We totally understand that a student may, for example, have had a tough school day on the day of the grind and would prefer to simply take it easy for the rest of the day.
We therefore allow a grind to be rescheduled to any available timeslot as long as that request is made less than 3 hours before the start of the grind.
Likewise, a student may no longer feel that the grind is necessary because the topic has "clicked" since the grind was booked. We wouldn't want that student to be wasting both their time or money on a grind if it's no longer needed!
We therefore again allow a grind to be cancelled for a full refund as long as that request is made less than 3 hours before the start of the grind.
In either case, the grind can be rescheduled or cancelled using the links provided in the email that is sent to you.
Feel free to reach out to Mr. Kenny on Teacher Chat or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(If you wish to reserve multiple grinds at once, select each timeslot one by one.)
