KMEC provides tuition for students in English between the ages of 6 -16; from Year 1 to GCSE in year 11.
English tuition covers grammar, reading, spelling, comprehension, phonemic awareness and written expression. The programme caters for students who are virtual non readers through to those who have only minor difficulties.
The curriculum covers all aspects of English that students are expected to learn in school (where English is the first language). The programme is carefully designed so that each student progresses at his/her own pace. A student can start anywhere within the KMEC programme at exactly the level suited to his/her current ability and knowledge.
There are five key areas in the Kip McGrath Education Centre’s English curriculum:
- Early Reading
(Including vocabulary development and grammar)
Early Reading Intervention: designed to develop and motivate young readers
This important programme is designed to assist children who have been identified early as having reading difficulties. It is also targeted towards children who have managed to progress through the school system yet lack any real reading capabilities.
This programme takes children right back to the basics of reading and is an intensive intervention programme. A FREE assessment is conducted to determine if this programme is appropriate for your child. Depending on age, children can progress from this programme to the Kip Reading Programme as their reading skills improve.
English Tutoring for age 7 - 16: Fill the gaps in spelling, English, comprehension and grammar
Kip McGrath provides English tutoring for students who are having difficulty in reading, spelling, comprehension, writing and spelling. The development of proficient English language skills is essential for student success at school, university and the workforce.
The English tutoring programme may consist of a combination of activities including:
- Writing skills
- Face to face teaching
- Written activities
- Stimulating computer based learning
All children are given a FREE initial assessment to identify areas where learning needs to be concentrated. An individual learning programme is tailored for your child based on the assessment results.
Tutoring for age 6 - 16
KMEC provides tuition for students in mathematics between the ages of 6-16; from Year 1 to Year 11 and GCSE.

The programme is carefully designed so that each student works on their independent learning plan developed after the initial assessment. A student can start anywhere within the KMEC programme at exactly the level suited to his/her current ability and knowledge.
