English Tuition

English tuition is the foundation of education, because getting it right impacts on every other subject your child will learn. Kip McGrath Gateshead East provides English tuition to help your child with their reading skills, spelling, English grammar and of course comprehension to understand it all.

Are you worried your child might be falling behind in their English lessons? Whether they’re at KS1 English, GCSE English or need A Level English tuition, we can help.

We start by giving your child a FREE assessment to identify what reading and comprehension level your child is working at. We identify what issues in learning English they are experiencing. We design a personal English tuition plan to help your child progress and achieve full command of the English language.

Early Reading Intervention: designed to develop and motivate young readers

Are you worried that your young child is not engaging with the books you read to them? Perhaps their nursery or school teacher has expressed concern. Maybe you’re not confident your child is as good a reader as they should be, for their age.

This important programme is designed to assist children identified as having reading difficulties very early in their development. It also helps children who have managed to progress through the school system without any real reading capabilities.

Our programme will take your child right back to the basics of reading. It’s an intensive intervention programme. A FREE assessment is given to identify if this programme is appropriate for your son or daughter.
