 STUDENTS ARE EXCITED ABOUT THEIR RESULTS AS WELL!

It was Ben's desire to attend the Australian Industry Trade College to complete Year 11 and 12 while also completing his apprenticeship training. He needed a good pass in Maths and English to be accepted into the college, and so attended classes each week at Kip. Ben hadn't been receiving passes in Maths or English prior to coming to Kip, but went into the exams with confidence, knowing his ability in these subjects had improved over the last term while at Kip McGrath. Ben gained 80% in English and 79% in Maths - results he had never had the joy of receiving before. He was accepted into the college, and will be entering Year 11 to achieve his dream. 'I'm stoked, and it's all thanks to Kip McGrath', said Ben.

'My maths has improved so much. Tutoring at Kip McGrath Palm Beach is definitely working for me.' Ashley

 

GRANDPARENTS CAN'T BELIEVE THE DIFFERENCE!

  • 'I am writing to you to to tell you how thrilled we are with the progress our granddaughter has made since she began her tutoring with you just months ago. The difference in her reading and writing in such a short time is amazing but what is wonderful is the confidence she has gained and the difference it has made in her attitude to school life. She has already achieved two awards and is very, very proud of herself. Life is so very difficult if you are struggling to read and write but thanks to your wonderful tutoring, she will not be a struggler but I am sure she will be right up there at the top of the class. Kind regards Margo Whelpton'.
  • 'I would personally like to thank you and your team for the tutoring you have provided for my granddaughter Bella. I am overwhelmed at what you, together with Bella, have been able to achieve in such a short time. If we as a family had been aware that tuition was available to young children just starting their education, Bella's Prep years at school would have been a lot happier. Now we have a confident grandchild, with the ability to read, spell and do Math. Without these skills you have taught her at Kip McGrath Education Centre Palm Beach, I truly believe she would have continued to struggle at school and sadly slipped through the education system. Amanda Earl'

 

THE TEAM AT KIP MCGRATH IS EXCEPTIONAL

'Margaret and Ross' encouragement and style of teaching reflect their passion and dedication to helping children learn. They help the children get the best they can from learning and eventually future successes. The results that we have seen from our son, in only a short period, is absolutely wonderful and he now has confidence and the ability to move ahead strongly.' Amanda S
