    Belfast North provides English and maths tuition: incentre-logo In Centre

Kip McGrath Belfast North offers Maths and English tuition to students from age 5 to 16 years. The centre is owned and managed by Madeline Friel who, having 17 years teaching experience, is well-equipped with the knowledge and skills to identify your child's strengths and needs and provide a tailor-made plan to encourage them to achieve their academic goals. As well as offering remediation and extension programmes for Maths and English, we can prepare our students for assessments and exams such as transfer tests and GCSEs. These programmes focus on study skills, exam technique and revision of the curriculum to ensure our students feel confident when facing the difficult challenge of exams. Every child in our centre has an individual learning programme which includes a blend of written, practical and computer-based activities. We strive towards enabling our students and helping them feel empowered when tackling academic challenges.


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.
