We help students primarily in the areas of Reading, Writing, Spelling, Comprehension, English and Maths - from Primary to Secondary. We also offer tuition to help prepare your child for exams such as the Grammar School Entrance tests (AQE and GL assessment), end of year exams and GCSE English and Maths.
KS1, KS2, KS3 and GCSE English tuition
Understanding the content of written text and being able to extract information or data from it is a very important skill. Achieving a good result in GCSE English can be surprisingly difficult. Unlike other subjects, there are few facts. GCSE English for instance is almost entirely focussed on acquiring skills – principally reading and writing.
We test your child’s spelling and reading age. We do two tests for reading. One for sight words only and one to read in context. With younger children we also look at their phonic knowledge and application, and their early reading and writing concept. We give you honest feedback on your child’s strengths and areas of concern, explain our materials and teaching methods to you.
An assessment also gives you a chance to ask any questions and tap into our expertise. This Assessment is FREE, there are no hidden costs and you are under no obligation to enroll.
At Kip McGrath we give students the confidence to write an essay with fluency and structure, developing their comments and observations appropriately for an examiner.
