Kip McGrath in Stirling
Before any student attends our centre, a comprehensive free assessment is arranged. The results are fully discussed with the parents, a teaching programme outlined and an individual programme of work is drawn up.
We believe that we have created the right atmosphere for individual learning using the best educational resources with tutors trained to employ a variety of proven, successful teaching methods. The main emphasis is on individual tuition and a typical 80 minute session involves six rewarding activities alternating between computer-based work and a variety of teaching methods to motivate your child. Our tutors are on hand to explain and teach the work, the moment students require them.
Each child works on his / her own programme, independent of others and each tutor has a maximum of five students, using a one-to-one teaching approach. No two students have the same teaching programme, each student receives individual tuition and all programmes are developed and monitored under the direct supervision of the centre director.
Our individually tailored programmes are structured to build confidence in the classroom and increase opportunities for success at all levels. They are designed to enhance rather than replace your child's schoolwork. Homework plans are developed and marked with each student and parents encourage completion of homework tasks.
Parents are also encouraged to become involved with their child's tutoring through regular contact with the centre and are informed of each session's progress.
Our Teaching Philosophy.
We aim to help students of all ages. It may be that they feel that they are being left behind due to a change of school, a move to a new area, illness or learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Asberger's Syndrome, Hyperlexia, Dyspraxia, ADD/ADHD or that they are aiming to excel.
Kip McGrath centres specialise in the teaching of ENGLISH, MATHS, READING and SPELLING. We also provide French and Physics tuition. Progress is set and varied to suit pupil's own pace, it is regularly monitored and homework is an integral component of the tuition.
At Kip in Stirling we provide a positive and supporting learning environment that promotes self-esteem, boosts every student's confidence and helps them achieve their personal best.
Our goal is to make learning fun and successful.
