My child has been attending since the first lockdown last year and has loved the online learning platform. He has made a lot of progress and we will remain with kip once the lockdown finishes

My child started with Ki p Mcgrath in January last year and has achieved a grade 5 in English. He has always found the tutors friendly and approachable as the sessions were designed around his understanding of the subject even with all the disruption the center staff have always managed to ensure that the sessions take place with minimum disruption I highly recommend Kip Mcgrath

Please improve the communication. I was looking for 1-2-1 sessions from the very beginning and was very clear to that. My daughter had few sessions as requested and then more children were during the same session. I am very dissapointed as no one informed me or not even included in the contract that these are a group sessions. The tutor put her on mute very often to do her work and whenever she pressed the help button, it was rejected by the tutor. I never received any report - since Sept- showing her improvement. Today was the last day, I cancelled the contract. Completly disappionted. More...

Improve communication with the families. Felt disappointed when the manager and teachers talking only with who they like,was completely ignored a few times. Felt a bit discriminated. Provide resources to the families to help them child.Wasn't able to trac my child's progress to check which topic he need to support. The learning app very simple, needs to improve. Mostly apset me bad communication with me and my husband. Once I asked about my child homework, because wasn't given any,the teacher very surprised why I did ask that.The virtual lesson was completely disaster, the teacher always put her microphone on the mute and less time which we wasn't informed about it.

I don’t often post reviews but I have been left very disappointed with the ethics of Kip’s head office. We have been using Kip McGrath over the past few years and found it to support my daughters learning. Unfortunately the franchisee was unable to keep the premises over the past few months and has been unable to source a new one in these exceptional circumstances. She will now be unable to continue teaching online until she could secure a new site due to the Kip rules. I am disappointed that the tutors will now find themselves without employment in these difficult times - and no flexibility has been allowed to help them support the children’s learning in what has been a strange time for most.

My three children have been using kip now for many years. This has been invaluable to their education and confidence. The staff are absolutely brilliant and tailor the lessons to suit the child and my children look forward to their weekly lessons.

Mark at the Rochdale centre is extremely professional, organised and caring about the students progress and wellbeing. My daughter worked with Ciara who has helped her catch up on 6 months of missed English lessons in just 14 sessions.

Would definetly reccomend Kip McGrath for any tuition! I had a session every week for 2 years to help me with my GCSE maths as I struggled a lot and had no confidence at all in myself that I could get a grade C. So thankful for Catherine and her amazing team that has gone above and beyond to help me and I finally got my grade C!! ☺️ Wouldn't have gone anywhere else would reccomend highly! More...

I can highly recommend Kip McGrath Barnsley North. Both my two children attend weekly sessions here as a result have grown in confidence and academic ability. The quality of the teaching is outstanding. I took my children to other places to be assessed before I made my choice and Kip McGrath at Barugh Green were by far the most thorough and accurate. My children also enjoy attending and look forward to their sessions every week. More...

Michelle - (Ben, year 9) Ben and his English teacher were not happy with Ben's levels a few months into the school year, so we looked at extra tution for Ben. As we had used Kip McGrath when Ben was in year 7 with very good results ( 1 full level and 2 sub levels) we decided to contact Catherine to get Ben booked back in to Kip McGrath. Catherine and all the staff are very helpful and patient with Ben. I would highly recommend Kip McGrath to anyone thinking of extra tuition. More...

Lizzie (year 8 student) has been attending Kip McGrath tutoring for around one year now. By attending just once a week her confidence in maths has increased. Maths has never been a strong subject for liz but she now feels that she has got teachers who are able to help her with Maths out of the school environment. Lizzie would highly recommend Kip McGrath ! 5 stars.

Q&As

I love my job because we make a difference. Many students come to us who are upset because they are finding the work too difficult. We gradually turn things around for them, changing the 'I can't' to 'I can' . Parents are particularly happy for many reasons, one of them being battles over homework are eradicated as we enable children to become independent learners and they want to achieve. Harmony in the home is restored!

I love teaching and I get a lot of enjoyment out of planning business ventures, ensuring the optimum service to our clients. As well as being a qualified teacher, my degree is in business studies and I have had two businesses previously. Having a Kip McGrath Education Centre is definitely the best.

The Kip McGrath system is proven to produce excellent results. It has been going for over 40 years and the centre in Barnsley started over 5 years ago. Don't just take our word for how good we are, we have many very happy customers who tell anyone who is interested that this is the place to come to. Anyone who is thinking of having private tuition can come and have a free, no obligation assessment. We don't need to tie our clients in to a long contract to keep them. Just two weeks' notice is required when it becomes time to move on.
