How we Assess Your Child at Kip McGrath
Before we agree to tutor your child it is important that a full educational assessment is carried out in English and/or Maths. Depending on the age and level of your child, this may take up to an hour. As qualified teachers, you can be guaranteed a true and accurate assessment of your child's current working level and we will discuss our findings in full with parents or guardians. Our assessment is currently FREE and without obligation.
The initial assessment is very important as it highlights particular areas of weakness and gaps in learning that may have formed in your child's education. Imagine learning is like building a brick wall. If gaps appear, the wall will eventually become unstable and you will no longer be able to add any more levels. At Kip McGrath, we are able to focus on filling these gaps before moving on to the next level, ensuring a strong foundation in learning and the ability to build an education that has no limits.
Individual Learning Programme for Every Child
If you and your child are happy to start tuition at Kip McGrath
, we will prepare an individual programme of learning
for your child. Students attend our centre for 80 minutes
rather than the normal hour that most tutors offer. This is not a school environment and we aim to make learning fun
for children whilst ensuring that as much teaching and learning takes place every week as possible. Having said that, we are not like other Tutoring Centres
who leave the children to complete endless worksheets and computer games and are overseen by "Instructors".
Each session is split into 20 minute segments of learning
. For example the initial 20 minutes could be going over homework and individual teaching
followed by 20 minutes written work, 20 minutes computer based and then more individual time with the tutor to set goals for the following week. This varies on the individual child's needs
and GCSE students for example will focus more on past papers and study techniques.
