Build confidence in Leaving Cert Maths with One-to-One or Group Grinds

The xyMaths offer

xyMaths is an online Leaving Cert Maths live-video service provided by Dr. Conor Purcell, who has been tutoring Leaving Cert Maths for over ten years, and is recognised nationwide. With a 5-star rating on Google Reviews Conor is known to deliver the highest quality Maths grinds both on a group and one-to-one basis, using top of the range camera and audio systems. 

All lessons are interactive and delivered by Conor himself, focusing on building students’ confidence by working with them on past exam papers. Recordings of the live group lessons – in case you have missed a class or wish to revise later – are made available.

How it works


The service works on a subscription basis. Our scholar package gives you access to weekly live interactive Maths Zoom Group Grinds (max 15 students per group) as well as recorded class videos. Premium offers you One-to-One in addition.

Live Tutor

During group lessons your tutor will spend 35-40 minutes working with you on past exam paper questions. Students can raise their hand and ask questions – by audio or chatbox – anytime they like. Afterwards you will have the option to stay another 10-15 minutes and ask any further questions, like when a teacher makes themselves available after class in school.

Online Video

Using Zoom, different approaches and methods to solving problems can be explained clearly with quality cameras and microphones. We also use the Zoom whiteboard and screen-share facilities.

Benefits of xyMaths

Maths lends itself particularly well to learning by live video. An anonymous survey of our students during the Covid Pandemic informed us that:

0 %
of students perceived no difference between Zoom grinds and grinds at home.
0 %
said online is even better
0 %
said that online was worse
0 %
of students said that they wanted past exam papers covered as a priority. So we are doing exactly that.

Live video is also helping to democratize access to private tuition worldwide by breaking the urban-rural divide. Traditionally maths tutors were based in towns or cities meaning that students in rural areas could be left out.

In Ireland it’s not uncommon for parents to drive their teenager 30 or 40 minutes to see a tutor. It’s also not feasible for a tutor to travel so far to your home. By saving you time, stress, and fuel, we are here to solve these problems, and change the way Maths Grinds work, for the better.

Our Promise

We promise you clear and detailed lessons with one key aim – to improve your performance in the Leaving Cert exam. We are totally exam focused. We also promise you absolute confidence in your tutor, Conor Purcell, who has been teaching Leaving Cert Maths privately for over 10 years.

Disadvantaged Students

During Covid Lockdown#1 The Irish Times reported on a Trinity College Dublin study which highlighted the issue that live online classes were more likely at private schools. Disadvantaged students were therefore much more likely to have disengaged from school work.

At xyMaths we believe that live online classes should not just be the privilege of those who can afford private tuition, and are aiming to provide free maths grinds to underprivileged students at DEIS schools.

To achieve this goal we seek funding from government organisations and philanthropists to help us help disadvantaged students with the aim of improving maths results nationally. Please contact us if this is of interest to your school.

About Us

xyMaths is a new online service founded by Dr. Conor Purcell, a private maths tutor who believes in the power of live video to help students achieve their Leaving Cert goals. Conor has over ten years experience in One-to-One and group tuition at both second and third levels. Over time he has recognised the power of private tuition to transform a student’s confidence and understanding of any topic. xyMaths is the next step on that journey.

Confidence in Mathematics has the ability to empower people in their lives and help them contribute to their communities and societies through innovation, entrepreneurship and understanding.
