Kieli: EN


Tutors, has your adult education class been postponed because of Covid-19?

Do you students still want to learn at home?

We can help.


Free over-the-phone tuition for adults

We have tutors on the phone that can help with:

  • Reading, writing and spelling
  • Numbers and basic maths
  • Filling in forms, for example for social welfare benefit
  • Helping kids with school work
  • Understanding health information
  • Understanding financial information, for example applying for mortgage relief

From Ireland: Call us on Freephone 1800 20 20 65, or Text LEARN to 50050 and we will ring you back with more information and set you up with one of our friendly distance learning tutors.

Our phone is answered Monday to Friday 9.30am-5pm (IST) and we will reply to all texts within two days.



This is how it works:

  • We keep working with you until you want to stop.

    Thank you for the post.

    Is any of this material available for use by people living outside Ireland?
    For example, do you have teaching resources that could be downloaded or browsed for inspiration by people in other countries?
