Our English tuition provides your child with an individual, structured learning programme to build their confidence and help them to reach their specific goals.

The Kip McGrath programme is based on the ethos that all children have the capacity to learn and reach their potential, if given the correct support.

We cater for students of all levels, from age 6 - 16 with individual English tuition programmes mapped to their needs and their school curriculum.

Kip McGrath has enabled my children’s’ confidence to grow in an area they have struggled with for years. My daughter’s enthusiasm and positive nature has ensured that sessions are fun and packed with praise. They in turn are keen to learn and enjoy a subject which previously caused fear. Kip McGrath has been the best.

Sound Familiar?

If your child is having difficulty keeping up in the classroom this can be tremendously damaging for their confidence and overall learning.

Whether your child has a specific difficulty, such as dyslexia, or you feel they are just lacking a bit of motivation or confidence in their ability, you can rest assured that we have seen it before and we have the expertise and resources to rectify the situation.

How Kip McGraph will help your child

We provide English tuition and support in a quiet, relaxed yet professional environment. Your son or daughter will receive the support they need via an individually tailored tuition programme delivered by skilled, qualified and experienced teachers using the highly regarded Kip McGrath methods.

My daughter Emma had several maths lessons to prepare her for her SATS as she lacked confidence in this subject. After a bit of a reluctant start Emma really began to enjoy her sessions and was keen to go more regularly.

Which areas of Engish can you help with?

Being a fluent and confident reader is probably the single most important skill any young pupil needs to make progress at school.

Additionally, the complexity of writing is something which challenges many of the students who come to our Centre.

Comprehension, spelling, grammar and punctuation all need to be fully understood and practised at a level appropriate to the individual.

If any of these skills are weak it can impact on learning across the school curriculum and cause problems right through to 'A' Levels and beyond.

Our English tuition is tailored to your child’s specific needs. There are five key areas in the Kip McGrath English curriculum:

  • Early Reading
  • Reading
  • Spelling
  • Comprehension
  • English (Including vocabulary development and grammar)

Will the English tutoring be at the right level for my child?

Kip McGrath Bristol Central provides tuition for students in English between the ages of 6-16. The curriculum covers all aspects of English that students are expected to learn in school and the programme is carefully designed so that your child progresses at their own pace.

A student can start anywhere within the KMEC programme at exactly the level suited to his/her current ability and knowledge.

I started my six year old son at Kip McGrath Worcester eight months ago, he was struggling at school and his confidence was rock bottom, he also like most boys is a bit distracted and fiddles with things, Sarah and the team have given him so much confidence … there is such a “family” feel.

How is Tutoring Structured

Each Kip McGrath session is 80 minutes and students usually come to the centre once or twice a week.

The 80 minute sessions are made up of 10 minute activities, focusing on different areas of study and different activity types, with some additional time for changes and a game at the end of the session.

A typical session in English, for example, could consist of reading, comprehension, spelling and vocabulary activities, to suit all types of learning.

A maximum of five students will attend any one session. Each student in the session will be working on an individual programme with the guidance and support of the tutor. Many of the activities will be computer based which assists in supporting independent learning as students are able to self correct.

Are the Teachers Qualified

Yes, each 80 minute session your child attends is taken by a qualified teacher and will combine computer assisted learning with paper based activities to provide a varied and fun learning environment. The proven learning techniques will ensure that you will soon see rapid progress in your child’s learning and confidence building.

Will my child receive 1 to 1 tutoring?

Coming to our centre will provide your son or daughter with the dual benefit of an individual study programme with personal attention, while studying in a small group with a maximum of 5 students.

A personal study programme means the programme is tailored to your child’s specific requirements, while being in a small groups mean sessions are fun and they will develop confidence by being with students with similar needs.

Often, the confidence and support students gain by being in a small group means their performance at school is also improved.

Before my child started with Kip McGrath he was lacking confidence & was 6 months behind in school work. Since going to Kip McGrath he has had a big boost in his confidence & has caught up with his school work.
- Parent.

Will there be homework?

Completing homework with confidence is a key skill required throughout your child’s education. Your child will be issued with a worksheet after each English tutoring session to reinforce the concepts covered in their session.

How long will it take for my child to catch up?

Kip McGrath Bristol Central offers a free, no obligation assessment to students to ascertain their current level and determine their learning goals. Using this, an individual English tutoring programme is designed to support your child’s learning needs. How long your child will take to catch up will depend on the gap in their learning.

How much does an English tutoring session cost?

£30 for an 80 minutes session (equivalent to £22.5/hour).

Session Times

  • Session 1: 4:00pm – 5:20pm
  • Session 2: 5:30pm – 6:50pm
  • Session 3: 7:00pm – 8.20pm

Sessions 1 & 2 run Monday to Friday, session 3 is on selected days, subject to demand.

We recommend that children study for a minimum of 6 months, parents can give two weeks notice at any time if they want to cease tutoring or if their circumstances change. Payment is weekly or fortnightly by direct debit.

The service provided… is excellent, excellent, and excellent! Our son is calmer knowing there is someone to help him. He can complete tasks now that he had no understanding of prior to Kip McGrath.
