There is now a wealth of materials online which supports junior cert and leaving cert students with their learning, as it provides another avenue of learning and preparing for exams. Eg.
- www.ixl.ie is a great maths website as it is very visual, well organised and easy to follow. It is subscription based.
Focussing on improving maths and English can provide stronger pillars that can support the student in learning in other areas.
