What We Do

Tutoring at Watford West Centre

We pride ourselves on delivering a personalised programme of study for each child, specifically targeting the skills they need to develop. We teach, reinforce, challenge, extend and enable each child to gain the confidence needed to progress.

Every tutor is a fully qualified teacher with QTS. Some tutors are currently working full time in school, some are part time in school as well as tutoring for Kip McGrath Watford. Some tutors are on maternity leave and some work part time whilst bringing up young families. All our tutors have a enhanced DBS check (previously called CRB)                                      

We provide help for your child if they have fallen behind at school or if they need extending. We also provide quality tuition for students aiming to reach a specific goal, eg. Key Stage 1, 2, 3 SATs, GCSE, 11+ and school entry exams.Your child's success is important to us, and we will do all we can to help them achieve it.

 students working

Lessons take place after school and on Saturday mornings. Students are taught in small groups of up to 5 pupils. The lessons are highly motivating to the students as each lesson is planned for the individual child.

We carry out a free assessment in order to identify the needs of your child and to advise you how we can help. Unique, interactive computer programmes and audio resources are used alongside structured worksheets and workbooks. Lessons are therefore varied and interesting.

 The sessions last for 80 minutes and are designed to enable your child to remain focused, make steady progress and ultimately succeed.

Confidence and self esteem improve, resulting in happy children and happy parents.

Progress is carefully monitored and students are assessed regularly.

What can you expect from the Kip McGrath Education Centre West Watford?

A friendly stimulating environment in which your child can learn. Their efforts and achievements are valued and rewarded.

You will receive a free assessment to establish your child's strengths and weaknesses and we will advise you how we can help.

We provide professional tuition in Maths and English for children of all abilities from age 6 to 16.
