HOW WE DO IT
Following a free consultation and assessment at the Centre, we build an individual workplan for each student. This plan will begin at the students current level of ability and progress will be at the students own pace. This means that he or she is always extended and challenged but never overwhelmed.
Each tutoring session lasts 80 minutes, during which time the students will be engaged in six or seven different activities. They will alternate between verbal, written and computer based activities which are all specially written for Kip McGrath centres. Boredom is not an issue!
Homework is set every week and it is thoroughly explained to the student before they take it home. This is a vital part of our programme as it allows our tutors to constantly assess the students progress and level of understanding.
