Why Choose Kip McGrath Scotland to Tutor Your Child?
If you are concerned about your child's progress at school in English or Maths, how do you find the best tutor in your area to tutor your child? Just search online and there are numerous listings for private tutors and national study and learning centres. When making your decision there are many factors to take into account to help you find the best option for your family. Whether you decide to employ a home tutor or attend a Tuition Centre, always take the time to ask questions.
Are you qualified to teach my child?
Yes. Every Kip McGrath Education Centre is owned and run by a fully qualified and experienced teacher and member of the General Teaching Council. Maths and English Tutors employed to teach in the centres are also fully qualified teachers with full PVG disclosures. There is no law in the UK that tutors have to be qualified teachers and in fact some of the biggest national tuition centres mostly employ "instructors" or graduates to assist children in their lessons. This is a completely different method of tuition than that offered by Kip McGrath Tuition Centres
How Do You Assess My Child?
Before we tutor any student, a thorough educational assessment is conducted which is FREE and without obligation. Using our experience as teachers and the Scottish school curriculum, our assessment can accurately pinpoint areas of weakness and gaps in learning that may have formed in a child's education.
Will My Child Receive Individual Tuition?
Yes. After the assessment, an individual learning plan is created and no two children will follow the same plan. Each 80 minute session is split into 20 minute sections which will include tuition and instruction in the lesson subject followed by written exercises and some computer activities to reinforce learning of the subject. The teacher will monitor progress very closely and then together with the student, set goals and homework for the following week. Students work individually but in small groups and we find this creates an ideal learning environment for children.
