The free assessment is designed to identify any gaps in your child’s learning and to also identify your child’s strengths. The free assessment can take anywhere from 40 - 60 minutes and is conducted by a fully qualified teacher. Your child will be assessed on English or maths or both depending on your child’s needs. At Kip McGrath we use a combination of computer based and written tasks to assess. Following the assessment you can talk directly to the teacher to discuss the results. The assessment results helps us to design an individualised learning programme for your child.
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.
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 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.
Kip McGrath does not provide homework help. We aim to catch students up in their learning. We 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.
