A new Kip McGrath Education Centre - Newburn and Westerhope – has recently opened in Newburn, Newcastle. Here, qualified teachers create individual tutoring programmes in maths and English for children aged from five to 16 years.

Many parents are concerned about how their children are performing at school and whether their children are at the appropriate level for their age and year group. At Kip McGrath, staff provide a free, no-obligation assessment to determine exactly how a child is performing, the results of which are discussed in detail with parents or carers. Kip McGrath programmes help thousands of children in the UK to achieve their learning goals each year.

The centre is designed to create a friendly and stimulating environment. Children are given all the benefits of active teaching, through a variety of learning mediums. Learning at Kip McGrath is varied and fun! Using the latest tutoring techniques and specially-designed resources, children are supported in building their self-esteem and confidence through individually-designed programmes of work with one-to-one guidance.

Centre director Helen Armstrong is a fully-qualified teacher with more than 24 years of experience. As well as being a class teacher, she has also been deputy headteacher in three schools and acting headteacher of a large primary school. She is passionate about helping children of all ages and all abilities to eliminate any barriers to learning and reach their full potential.

Joseph’s mother Marcel says: “We would have no hesitations recommending Helen at Kip McGrath to any parent who feels their child may need extra support and help. Joseph always looks forward to his weekly session with Helen and is eager to go – I think he has so much fun that he forgets he is actually doing academic work!

“We are very pleased with the progress our son has made since attending Kip McGrath. Helen, Joseph’s teacher, has really improved Joseph’s reading skills, he is more confident in his approach and has a much better understanding of sounds and blending which has lead to him reading more fluently.

“We can see each week that his reading skills are getting stronger and stronger – now he is keen to read as many books as he can! Joseph also loves using the specially-designed Kip McGrath computer programmes. We feel that they are really beneficial and it has also helped his listening and concentration skills too.”

If your child could use some extra help, is lacking confidence at school or would benefit from being challenged to extend their learning, then call 0191 43 55 274 today to book your free assessment.

Alternatively, if you are a busy family who would be interested in some extra support or extension for your child, but cannot find time to attend the centre, ask about the online tuition service. This offers face-to-face tutoring with a live tutor, online and in real time, using the Kip McGrath resources.
