Tutors’ commitment brings

results for students

A genuine commitment to helping

students achieve in education and concern

for what happens to them are what brings

the results for children tutored at Kip

McGrath Ferrymead, says franchise owner

Helen Hudson.

“As they progress through the sessions we

see them blossom and grow in confidence

with their learning and that’s so rewarding,”

Helen says.

The other key factors that set Kip McGrath

apart and contribute to students’ success are

that all tutors have to be qualified teachers,

and that students have the same tutor every

time they attend, Helen says.

“This allows the tutors to build a rapport

with their students. They work on an

individualised programme within a small

group of three to five students.”

Communication with parents is another

important aspect, Helen

points out.

“We have to be meeting

the needs of the children

as the parents see it, as well

as what we see is needed.”

Kip McGrath Ferrymead

has six tutors offering

students from Year 1-13

tutoring in maths and

English – covering a broad

spectrum of spelling,

writing and reading, with

the tutors fully conversant

with NCEA requirements.

Chemistry, Physics

and Biology along with

English and Maths tutoring is

available for Year 11, 12 and

13 students.

“With the senior students

we work alongside them, but

they are really the leader of

the lesson, which is tailormade

to their needs,” Helen

says.

There is also a focus on

children with learning

difficulties, such as dyslexia,

and for accelerant students,

who need extra challenges.

Each tutoring session lasts

one hour 20 minutes, with

about six different activities

included each time. Sessions are run

outside school hours, either before or after

school, with most students attending once

a week.

“We also offer one-on-one tutoring for

adult students, who may need to improve

their English or maths skills for work they

want to apply for.”

There are several funding subsidies

available for Kip McGrath tutoring.
