How long will my child need tutoring?

All children progress at a different rate. It can be difficult to determine the exact amount of time your child will need tutoring. You can discuss this in more detail with your Kip McGrath tutor. We have some basic benchmarks that we use to give estimation. The best method is consistent and quality tuition.

How do I know they are progressing? Should we reassess them regularly?

The Kip McGrath study programme is progressive. Your child will be starting at a foundational level and will work their way up to the goal set. Each week their lesson plan contains new activities that build on the knowledge they learnt in the previous week. We reassess students towards the end of the year OR when a child has potentially reached their goal.

Will my child progress in a small group?

Kip McGrath was built on one to one tuition in a small group environment. We at Kip McGrath have used this foundation to deliver our lessons. We spend one on one time with each student and then allocate independent tasks. This gives the student time to apply their new knowledge to the task set. The Kip McGrath tutor will monitor the student at all times; they can see exactly what the student is completing and assist the student immediately.

How much homework will my child receive?

Homework is an important part of the programme. It gives the child the opportunity to consolidate and practise what they have learnt during their lesson. The student should never receive homework on topics they have not covered with their tutor or tasks that are too difficult.

My child is having trouble with some school homework and assignments. Can this be part of their programme?

Kip McGrath does not provide homework help. We aim to catch students up in their learning. We can add some lesson activities during the session on topics your child is currently completing at school. This will ensure the student does not get further behind and also builds the child’s confidence to operate in the classroom environment.

I am not happy with the service or my tutor. Who can I talk to about these issues or how can I lodge a complaint?
