Testimonials

My daughter attended Kip McGrath for help specifically with her division. It was quickly assessed to be a lack of understanding of pie graphs and fractions which she had fallen behind in Year 3. She is now in Year 5.

Through her weekly attendance at Kip McGrath and the enthusiastic attentions and commitment of Inge and Robert who run the centre she is back on track with maths and more confident. Her love of maths has returned.

“I’m delighted to report how much our daughter enjoys attending Kip McGrath classes for tuition in maths. She had lost confidence in her abilities late last year, but is now feeling much more confident after a term revisiting basic facts and strategies. She has commented several times how much she enjoys coming to see you, so you’re obviously doing something right! “
Tracey, Parent of Year 7 student – Kip McGrath Darfield

 

We have been thoroughly impressed with our experience of Kip McGrath. We’ve noticed not only an improvement in our child’s academic achievements but more importantly an improvement in his overall confidence levels.
Kate, Mum of Jack

The class teacher knows my son is attending Kip McGrath and she has noticed a big improvement, especially in his concentration. We can see a difference in him and his reading is much better.

The tuition played a major role in improving the spelling and writing skills for my son. We have tried various types of private tutors, extra school programs, Computer Aided Programmes and so on. The only visible progress was with Kip McGrath.

“Kip has helped me reach the top English class in the school. I enjoy coming to Kip because you learn heaps (and you get rewarded with treats.)”

Jack, Year 9 – Kip McGrath Darfield

Before my child started with Kip McGrath he was lacking confidence & was 6 months behind in school work. Since going to Kip McGrath he has had a big boost in his confidence & has caught up with his school work.

Melissa, Mum of Mitchell

One of my children was quite behind in English due to a sight problem that was not picked up until Year 6. With additional tutoring to get up to speed, now is proud when achieving a B in English on school reports.

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.

I am just emailing you to inform you of my NCEA results that I have just received, I am pleased to say that I am very happy with the outcome. I’d like to thank you once again for your hours of help and commitment to my success, I know that without your help that I would not have been able to attain my goals. I hope that you are as proud of me as my family are and I am so thankful that you agreed to take me on, all of the tutors that I had have taken a huge weight off my shoulders and I now feel more confident about taking on the new year and the challenges that lie ahead of me.
