    • Use this Forum to offer or ask for grinds. Organise Group Classes or 1-to-1 support. Any potential grinds organised MUST use our online system to deliver the classes. We do this for a variety of reasons, the main ones being for safety and security. Safety from packed classrooms, safety from long cycles or drives to grinds on wet nights, and personal safety and security assured. We could not allow potentially anonymous tutors into your house. We will have to make sure that the potential tutor has the correct credentials to be around schoolchildren, so we insist on online delivery. All classes will be recorded and stored on our private servers as a memorial of the class. This can also help us in trying to investigate any potential later disagreement about quality of service, agreement to pay, evidence of online bullying, etc. The classes will also be available to students, as a study aid, for their duration with Scotia Academy. If you organise a grind outside of the above advice, Scotia Academy will not be held responsible for any liability or concern arising from that choice.  
      • Grinds and Courses Offered
        By offering grinds or courses here, you are agreeing to use Scotia Academy's secure and safe software to deliver that service. A full explanation of this can be found here. It's free to advertise. Prices are pre-agreed. No negotiation. Costs for grinds to all potential students are fixed at the following rates. There is no negotiation allowed.
        • A one-hour, 1-to-1 Second Level Grind costs €40. They can be booked here.
        • A one-hour group session of four or more students up to a maximum of 12 costs €25 per person. They can be organised in the forum but must take place completely online on our software.
        • A one-hour college level grind costs €50. They can be booked here.
        • Special prices can be arranged for special courses like topic revision courses or intensive subject revision courses. For more information go here.
        For grinds organised in accordance with our guidelines, we will provide a fully serviced and easy to use online portal to deliver the classes. We will administer the classes on our Learning Management System and provide the gateway of communication between tutors and students. This will allow the tutor to just focus on their teaching and not having to worry about collecting money or any other class administration issues. Tutors are more than welcome to use our system as a way of delivering their services. We invite you to join us at Scotia. Try out our explainer video here to see how easy it is to use.
