Teaching Methods


Teaching Methods at Kip McGrath Bury Tutoring Centre

schoolbooksEvery child who comes for tuition  for English and/or Maths at Kip McGrath is assessed by myself.  As a qualified teacher with over 14 years teaching experience, I can identify areas of weakness or gaps in learning that may exist in a child's education. 

The educational assessment is FREE of charge and can take from 30 minutes to an hour.  All findings will be disclosed in full with parents.

If both student and parents are happy, we will allocate a regular tuition time and create an individual programme of study for each student.  Every child is unique and no 2 students will follow the same tuition programme.

Most students attend the centre for 1 hour and 20 minutes per week but some students may benefit from 2 lessons per week. star  Find out more about our assessment and teaching process here.

Our written resources and online computer programmes are completely exclusive to Kip McGrath teachers and are designed by teachers to compliment and not replace tuition.  Our students are never left to complete endless written or computer worksheets.

Why Choose Kip McGrath?

If you are looking to find a tutor in Bury for your child, there are many options to choose from.  You may consider a private tutor to come to your house.  If this is something that would suit your child, please ensure that they are actually qualified to teach your child and hold all the necessary CRB checks to ensure that your child is in safe hands.  If you feel that attending a national tuition centre like Kip McGrath would be beneficial, why should you choose Kip McGrath instead of the other national tutoring centres available who have great marketing? 


Well, the main reason is that all Maths, English and Science tutors employed at Kip McGrath Tuition Centres are fully qualified and highly experienced teachers who "teach children" following the local school curriculum.  All tutors are experienced teachers having taught in schools in Bury and all have CRB checks in place before they can tutor.Back to top

Can You Tutor My Child with a Learning Disorder?

There are many disabilities with varying levels of disorder. We always recommend that you seek professional advice on this question first, however we have taught students with disabilities such as ADHD, Asperger, 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


Will My Child Get Homework ?

Yes. Every student will receive homework but this should take no more than 30 minutes to complete. This is an important part of the tuition process and we would ask that all students attempt to complete homework without parental help. This is not a test and although homework will be given to suit every child's individual working level, there will be one or two trickier questions at the end that children may struggle with. This is expected and continues to help us assess a child's level of understanding. Back to top

Standard tuition fees for 80 minutes are £25. Please note that our lessons are for one hour and 20 minutes as opposed to other tutors who normaly charge per hour when comparing fees. Discounts are available for siblings attending tuition and we also offer a FREE lesson to those who pay for 10 lessons in advance.
