  Derry Foyle provides English and maths tuition: incentre-logo In Centre

At the Kip McGrath Education Centre Derry Foyle, we offer professional tuition in English and maths to children aged 5 - 16 years within the Derry & Donegal area. The centre is owned by sisters Leonora O’Donnell and Pat Concannon who are highly experienced qualified teachers, with over 20 years’ experience between them in both primary and secondary education. The after school tuition centre has been open since 2007 and Pat and Leonora's first-hand teaching experience helps them recognise each child’s individual learning needs to help them achieve their academic goals. We ensure that every student works at a level they are comfortable with before moving on to the next step. Every child has an individual learning programme which is prepared following a comprehensive educational assessment. The centre caters for children who fall behind with learning and also for those who would like to be extended.


Your free assessment is conducted by a fully qualified teacher who will provide an independent educational appraisal.

Staff members are approachable and friendly and let you know how your child is progressing after each session. We have only been using the service since the beginning of first term and already have seen an improvement in our daughter’s confidence in her approach to mathematics.

Colin & Melisa

I would just like to thank Andrea for the much needed help and support she provided my son Jack through the Kip McGrath Centre. Jack struggled with his Maths and English from year 5/6 but with the extra support and years of perseverance with weekly extra tuition, Jack is now nearly 20 and heading into his 2nd year at Birmingham University doing Sound Engineering. Thank you so much Andrea, I can’t believe it’s nearly 10 years as Jack was your first pupil too.

Parent (Kip McGrath Leigh)

I would like to express my appreciation for giving my daughter the confidence and self esteem she deserves to have. This was never just about Jessica learning maths, it was about overcoming the obstacle in Jessica’s head that she couldn’t. After only a few sessions she commented “Grandma I actually really like maths now”. The relaxed, happy, club atmosphere is great, with no complaints regarding attending even in the holidays, so much so her sister is desperate to join. Thanks for your hard work.

Pamela, Parent (Kip McGrath Dunfermline)

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 learning experience we have encountered.
