These are just a few of the comments our parents and children have made about Kip McGrath Gateshead East:
Excellent teachers, they are in constant contact with every parent. I am so pleased with everything Kip has achieved with my son. My child has been coming to Kip and the staff are so friendly. I highly recommend Kip McGrath.
My Grandson began attending Kip McGrath at the beginning of February 2018, to support him in maths in the run up to his GCSE’s. He grew massively in confidence in this time and I only wish I had found Kip sooner! Huge thanks to Carol, Colin and Leo for their support!
My son was worried about completing his GCSEs in Science, as he had gaps in knowledge and felt the pressure of a high target grade. Carol was amazing and offered Daniel an assessment to determine his needs. Following weekly lessons with Sandra, I could see the confidence beginning to grow - it was clear that Dan had the ability but had lacked self-belief.
After only eight weeks (I only wish I’d arranged it sooner!) the first exam began...
On results day, nobody was more shocked and delighted than me when Daniel achieved Grade 8 across Science! Amazing and quite clearly a result of the excellent tutoring he had received.
Thank you so much for everything you did for Daniel - I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kip McGrath at Gateshead and might even see you again with my daughter in the future.
My daughter Alisha finished her tutoring sessions with Carol Milne and her team today and I have to say that the transformation I have seen in my daughter in just 5 weeks wants to make me cry with happiness.
2 months ago I panicked when my daughters GCSE mock results came through my door and they where nothing like her predictions or what she needed for her college course. I was devastated for her. Was it poor assessments from the school or did she just panic in her exams. I will never know I guess and I won't lay blame anywhere as it's my responsibility to ensure she is ok. So I needed to find her some help before her final GCSE exams started and Carol was my saviour.
Outcome of 5 weeks tutoring: My daughters attitude to her exams has improved with the knowledge she has gained, she is taking her revision more seriously now but the confidence and self esteem shift I have seen in how she feels about her own ability to do the exams and her approach to doing them confidently is what I am most proud of.
Carol I can't thank you enough for all of your help at such short notice before her exams.
For anyone of my friends or family who have children in school I urge you to get your children assessed no matter their age with Carol which is free to do as all the documents and conversations I have had with my daughters school did not reflect her mock results in fact they where 2 grades below predicted and unfortunately far too short notice for me to get a longer term solution and impact in place for her but over the moon in what was achieved in just 5 weeks.
And don't wait until they return in September as now is the time to get your kids set up for their new school year and I can't recommend this lady and her team of teachers enough.
Thank you thank you Carol. It's has been short but amazing job done by you all.
Sam's been going to Kip for a little while. Homework was always a chore but I was so impressed today with the way he approached the maths he was set. He talked himself through every question logically with a clear method that has clearly come from working with Carol. As a secondary maths teacher I know that MANY students don't have a logical process and, therefore, don't understand - they become robots that can't transfer skills. This skill, for Sam, has definitely not come from his primary school, it has come from working at Kip. His ability and confidence have grown so much. Thanks Carol, I can see a huge difference in Sam!
My daughter has had her confidence increased tenfold since starting maths tuition with Kip McGrath. Her tutor (Craig) seems to get the best out of her and after a very reluctant beginning my daughter now actually looks forward to her sessions.
Sam is much more confident with his maths, he was assessed as a year behind when he started at Kip McGrath and has recently been re- assessed at school and is where he should be, we believe this is largely in part to the extra, excellent tuition he has received at Kip. He had responded really well to Carol his tutor and feels really comfortable in the setting of the centre.

My daughter has made fantastic progress with her writing and spelling since starting Kip McGrath. She really enjoys the sessions, working with an excellent teacher who knows how to get the best out of her students. I can't thank you enough Carol.
My daughter has been attending for quite a few weeks now but I wanted to get a good feel before I left a review. I can't believe the difference in Ruby's attitude to school work since starting! Maths was always a sore subject and causing a recurring weekend tantrum when it was time to do homework. Carol has really helped Ruby with her confidence in the subject and it's lovely to see Ruby sit down by choice to do her homework.
I can't recommend Carol enough Ruby already adores her and she made her feel special and at ease from the very first time they met.
Thank you so much!
My Son has really struggled with reading and writing, in a short period of time coming to the centre he has come on enormously. The programme is really working for him, attending the sessions seems to be really cementing everything in. He's beginning to see the difference himself and it's giving him so much more confidence in all the other areas of school as well. It's making a really big difference in our life I can't recommend it enough.
Erin has been going since October and what a difference in her work she has come on loads I would definitely recommend
Amazing tutor! My girl loves coming, even after a long day at school she looks forward to it
Myself and Rhys would just like to thank you and Ray his Maths tutor for the excellent guidance and encouragement you have given to Rhys during his extra maths lessons in the build up to his Maths GCSE.
As a result of Rhys's additional lessons his confidence has grown and he firmly went into his Maths exam with the belief he could achieve his desired grade.
I have recommended Kip McGrath to all friends and family and only wish we had found you sooner.
Carol is amazing and Louise who is tutoring my son in his A Level English has brought him on so much in only 3 weeks he's confident for his exams in a couple of weeks, I will continue to pay for tutoring for his final year of A Levels as it's worth every penny, thank you To everyone xxx
Fantastic help for my daughter when studying for her A level English exam. Fantastic communications and always happy to help with anything.
My daughter has been attending sessions to help with her reading and English skills on the run up to her SATS and I can honestly say that I have seen a great deal of progress not only with her school work but with her self confidence. Will not hesitate to use Kip McGrath again in the future and would highly recommended it for others. Thanks so much Carol for your words of encouragement and patience with my daughter during her sessions with you.
