About Us

Why choose Kip McGrath?

Kip McGrath is Australia's most experienced and successful tutoring organisation. We offer quality tuition to primary and secondary aged students in maths, English, reading and spelling. We also offer a Get Ready for School Program to help preschoolers get the best start to their education. We treat each child as an individual, with their own carefully designed and monitored program. Our centre is well equipped and free from classroom or other distractions. Plus, we teach your child how to become self-motivated.

Feedback - our qualified experienced teachers are always happy to discuss your child's progress. Plus, we re-assess regularly to give you a written report each semester.

We believe that children can succeed if they have a solid foundation of basic skills. A free, diagnostic assessment is the first step in identifying childrens' needs in basic skills. A remedial program can then be developed to 'fix' these problems and to give children the experience of success they need to boost confidence and to produce a positive attitude.

Carefully monitored individual programs are taught in 80 minute sessions once a week by an experienced, qualified teacher. Homework, which reinforces skills learned, is set and marked.

Professional help is available for your child in:

  • Reading
  • Spelling
  • Comprehension
  • Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Study Skills
  • Essay Writing

We offer:

  • A free educational assessment to all new students
  • Ongoing, continuous evaluation of your child's progress with feedback
  • Computer assisted learning
  • 80 minute tutoring sessions
  • Individual learning programs aimed at achieving the best outcomes for your child

1. What subjects do you teach?

We help students in the areas of Reading, Writing, Spelling, Comprehension, English and Maths - from Year One to HSC. 

2. What ages do you teach?

The majority of students we teach are between 6 and 18 years old. We also cater for adult students who need to 'brush up' on their school knowledge, for example, a workplace exam or to improve their maths, reading or writing skills.

3. Do you tutor exam preparation for selective school entrance?

We do exam preparation for Higher school Certificate in some topic areas. It is important that you contact us well before the exams to give your child the best chance of success.

4. How long will it take to solve my child's problem?

Every child is different and every problem is different. After the initial assessment we will be able to provide an indication of how long tutoring may be required.

5. Will you come to my house to tutor?

All tutoring is done within our Centre. This gives us the best facilities and teaching materials to meet the needs of your child in an optimal learning environment free from distractions.

6. How does the initial assessment work?

Many parents are concerned about how their children are performing at school and whether their children are at an appropriate level for their age and class. We provide a free, no-obligation assessment and discuss the results with you in detail to determine exactly how your child is performing.

7. How long is each lesson?

Lessons are 80 minutes long and students attend for one lesson a week. Some older children do attend more often, according to their needs. Even young children attend for 80 minutes - their lessons are broken up into 10 minute activities, designed to keep them keen and interested.

8. Will my child get homework?

Homework is an essential part of the Kip McGrath program, particularly for Reading students. We are aware of each child's schoo workload , so set homework is generally limited to around half an hour each week. If you have difficulty getting your child to complete the homework, please contact us immediately.

9. Will my child be tutored one-on-one?

Students who attend Kip McGrath Education Centres are tutored in small groups of up to 5 students. Our experience shows that students work better when others around them are focussed, active and proud of what they are achieving; it is less threatening for students not to be the sole focus of the teacher; a key aim of tutoring is to develop independent learners - students do this more quickly and effectively if they are shown how to do it and then do it on their own; and students enjoy meeting other students.

Parent Reviews

Kip McGrath has helped my daughter Samantha with maths. She has come along in leaps and bounds. She enjoys going and she is learning more each week. I would refer Kip McGrath to my friends. S.W.

The tutoring I received through Kip McGrath had a large effect on my performance at school. My marks in test results greatly improved which, in turn, resulted in an impressive HSC result. It eased a lot of stress off my shoulders, helping me to become more confident and happy with myself and my school work.    R.R

Our daughter has struggled with maths all her school life. She started with Kip McGrath in Bathurst in Year Seven and her improvement has been amazing. We wish we had helped her more by starting her earlier. Recently she completed her School Certificate with wonderful results. Not only does our daughter enjoy maths, but her results have boosted her confidence and we know this will continue. Honestly, the best decision we have made for her education.    L.S.

When my daughter started falling behind at school, I knew just where to turn. Many years ago I myself was a student at Kip McGrath. I knew it provided a great environment with teachers who were kind and patient. Gabi has really enjoyed learning, her teacher is thrilled with the improvement in her classwork and her enthusiasm for school has returned.  K.T.

We are very happy with Brad's school results. We feel this has been due to the tutoring from the Kip McGrath Centre.  G.S.

Andrew has enjoyed coming to Kip McGrath. The 80 minute lesson has never seemed a 'struggle' . He is always happy to attend and happy to do his homework. Andrew has improved greatly in the areas that have been attended to at Kip McGrath. I would recommend Kip McGrath to friends and family. K.H.
