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. Kip McGrath Ferrymead franchise owner Helen Hudson helping a student Registered Ngai Tahu members receive some funding, as do registered members of the Rotorua-based Tauhara No. 2 Trust. Fletchers also provide funding subsidies for family members of their employees. Free assessments are offered, and students can enroll at any time of the year.
