My son is having trouble with reading skills and comprehension and he’s falling behind in school. Can you please help get him back on track?

At Kip McGrath Gateshead East, we specialise in improving reading skills and comprehension. Starting with a reading age test to benchmark where your child is in their own reading skills and using the results of his reading age test, we create an individual learning plan to improve both his reading and comprehension skills.

  • My son has been coming to Kip for help with his English as he was struggling at school. At first it was `do I have to go?` now it's a different story. We couldn't be any happier with the results so far, he has come on fantastically and even his teachers at school are impressed. His tutor Lynn is absolutely lovely and nothing is a bother, in fact the whole team are exceptional. Its an OUTSTANDING off us 😁

  • My daughter has been attending maths tuition recently on the build up to her GCSEs and it's made such a difference with her confidence towards her exams. We would definitely recommend 😊

  • My son has learnt so much in the short amount of time he has been going. Rachel his tutor has gave him so much confidence in himself as well. After each lesson we are told how he has done and if he has struggled on anything they just keep going till he understands which is exactly what he needs and what school can’t do. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing tonight when she showed me his maths book and what he has achieved. Thank you so much for all your hard work-and patience with my son.

  • I would highly recommend Kip McGrath Gateshead East to any parent. My daughter joined after feeling she wasn’t getting the support she needed at school. Carole and her team carried out an independent assessment and worked with her to develop her confidence and skills in Maths, ready for her GCSE exams, which she passed with an excellent grade. I received regular weekly updates from her tutor on her progress. All staff are friendly and helpful going that extra mile for the students. Can’t thank Carol, Leo and the other tutors enough for all the help and support.

  • I would highly recommend carol and her team. My daughter has come on so much since attending Kip McGrath. She has gained a lot more confidence now and enjoys reading and writing. The staff are very supportive and friendly and always available to chat to if you need some assistance or advice. Thank you Carol and Team.

  • Our daughter attends Kip once a week for maths with Rachael and has improved significantly in a very short space of time. Emily is a very anxious little girl and struggles with dyslexia, so we were worried Kip just wouldn't have been for her, but the patience of the staff (Sue goes above and beyond if Emily's feeling anxious) and the excellent tuition have really worked wonders for Emily's confidence. Highly recommended if you have the slightest inkling that you child could do with a little extra help.

  • Coming to Kip for both Maths and English has been life changing for my son... he has made massive progress and we are now beginning to see huge levels of improvement. The teaches are wonderful and with small class size he really thrives. I would recommend anyone to give Kip a go as it really is brilliant!!

  • 5* for everything! my child is now doing excellent in school thanks to Kip McGrath. My child is also now in the top set for English at school. The staff are amazing too, they explain everything so its easy to understand fully and its all tailored to your child.
    Rachel Wilson
  • 5* for Carol and her team, especially Dayna. My daughter has attended here twice, first for her GCSE math and then for A level English and both times have been well worth it. The way lessons are set out and the help and support available in the classroom has boosted my daughter's knowledge and confidence in both of the above subjects and that has helped massively in both assessments at school and exams.

  • George needed a boost and that's certainly what he got at Kip McGrath Education Centre. His reading progress is most noticeable; he's gone from a stilted reader to a fluent reader who has confidence, in just 8 weeks. (He's even started reading books on his own and to his brother, this is unheard of). His progress was more than we could have hoped for and he looked forward to each session, especially working on the computers! George grew in confidence working with Carol and I would whole heartedly recommend this to anyone whose child needs a boost in self-confidence and/or academically.

  • It was really fun because you do loads of activities and I am a better reader now!!
