As families in York have been getting to grips with homeschooling, Kip McGrath Education Centre York West has been providing invaluable support.

Kip McGrath Education Centre York West is a family run tuition centre, which provides personalised tuition in English, maths and science. Directors of Kip McGrath York West, David and Ruth Hardy, are fully qualified, DBS checked teachers who aim to help students to reach their full potential by providing tailored tuition using their tried and tested resources. They work regularly with students who struggle at school, those with additional needs and those students who require more challenge than school can offer. David and Ruth recognise that for students, closing gaps in learning is important but maintaining understanding is key to long term success, they therefore work on helping students to catch up and keep up.

The centre usually runs tuition sessions on weekday evenings, however, during the pandemic they have also been running lessons, via their online platform, throughout the day, to help parents with homeschooling. Kip McGrath York West will be providing tuition right through the summer holidays to support students in the run-up to the return to school in September.

All prospective students undergo a free assessment with Kip McGrath York West, during which David or Ruth ascertain the student’s strengths and weaknesses and use their findings to put together a personalised plan for the student. Parents receive regular updates on their child’s progress and many parents often comment that their child has not only made rapid academic progress but has grown in confidence thanks to the progress they’ve made.

Kip McGrath York West, which is one of three Kip McGrath Education Centres in the city, is an OFSTED registered childcare provider, this means that they are able to accept a range of payment methods including childcare vouchers, working tax credits and tax-free childcare, which makes their services accessible to all.
