Tom Clarke is a full time Irish teacher full time with over 6 years experience in preparing students for state exams having also served as an examiner on the SEC for both Leaving Certificate orals and written exams.
With his extensive in experience in the teaching and preparation for Junior and Leaving Cert students, having worked in a variety of schools around south and north Dublin, his experience on the exam panels gives him key insights into the stringent requirements of the Leaving Cert Irish exams that will help the students of this course.
