Can you tutor my child with a disability ?

 

 

There are many disabilities with varying levels of disorder. We always recommend that you seek proffessional advice on this question first, however we have taught students with disabilities such as ADHD, Aspergers, Dyslexia, Autism and others in the past. It is very important that we have an interview and assessment with you and your child before we can determine if we can effectively tutor them. Our main focus is to ensure that your child's disability will not interfere with their ability to learn in this environment. Please contact us to discuss your child's needs.Back to top

Online tutoring is currently being developed and once available will mimic the proven Kip McGrath method of tutoring currently delivered in the Centre. Due for release in 2012, it will be a great option if your child finds it difficult to regularly attend our Centre.Back to top 

How does the initial assessment work ?

 

 

Many parents are concerned about how their children are performing at school and whether their children are at the appropriate level for their age and class. We provide a free, no obligation assessment and discuss the results with you in detail to determine exactly how your child is performing.Back to top

 

How long is each lesson ?

 

 

Lessons are 80 minutes long and students attend for one lesson a week. Some older children do attend more often, according to their needs. Even young children attend for 80 minutes - their lessons are broken up into 10 minute activities, designed to keep them keen and interested.Back to top

There are a variety of lesson times available to suit you and your child's activities. The majority are after school during week days however we try to be flexible according to the availability of your child. Please contact us to discuss your needs.Back to top

 

Will my child get homework ?

 

 

Homework is an essential part of the Kip McGrath programme, particularly for Reading students. We are aware of each student's school workload so set homework is generally limited to around half an hour each week. If you have difficulty getting your child to complete the homework, please contact us immediately.Back to top

 

How should I help my child while at Kip McGrath ?

 

 

Make your child's school teacher aware that you are getting your child tutored and ask to be kept up to date with your child's performance at school and any areas that the teacher believes needs attention. Set aside a place and a time for your child to do homework from both school and Kip McGrath and ensure that they complete it each week. Make sure that they attend their tutoring sessions each week - regularity is a major key to improving your child's results. Always let the tutor know if you have any concerns about the progress of your child or the type of work that they are doing.Back to top
