Kip McGrath Southend East is owned by Nicole O'Shea and is located on Hamstel Road, Southend on Sea, near to Garons on the Eastern Avenue. Since taking over the centre in March 2013, the large two storey centre has been refurbished to a high standard. We welcome children of all abilities from the ages of 4-16 to study a large range of subjects: English, maths, 11+, SATs, GCSE and other entrance examinations. All children are taught by a fully-qualified and experienced school teacher. All staff are CRB checked. The Centre is Ofsted registered (for childcare) and we welcome working tax credit payments (where you can get up to 70% off your fees) and childcare vouchers. We are also a member of the Children's University. As well as in centre tuition, we also offer face-to-face online tuition.

If you are unable to make it in centre, connect with our live tutors online via Kip On Screen tutoring.



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.
