English Tutors in the UK
The tutoring industry in the UK is booming. There are many private tutors, tuition centres and after school clubs offering practice in English and Maths throughout the whole of the UK. In 2013, the tuition industry will continue to grow.
In Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales, we have some fantastic schools but a great deal of controversy still reigns in our education system and many parents continue to seek out private tuition to ensure that their children achieve the best education and exam results possible. Children are receiving extra tuition from as early as Year One (if not earlier) and especially in High School. Some children do fall behind in school and extra tuition can quickly bring students up to the level of their peers. However, it is not only children who struggle who attend private tuition as many parents wish children to be stretched to achieve the best possible results whether that be 11+, entrance exam, GCSE, SCE or Higher/A-Level results.
Find an English Tutor in the UK
If you make the decision to find a private tutor in 2013 then why should you choose a Kip McGrath Education Centre? Well, we have over 200 centres in the UK which are run and taught by qualified teachers. English and maths are our core subjects but many centres offer other additional subjects. Our qualified teachers offer a FREE educational assessment for every child and create an individual lesson plan for every child based on their own individual learning needs. As qualified teachers, we know the local school curriculum and what is needed by every child to reach their full acadmic potential.
Are English Tutors Qualified to Teach English?
We may harp on about this but a tutor does not need to be a qualified English teacher to tutor English according to UK laws. When you employ an English tutor please ensure that you take out references and speak to previous students. Ask to see credentials and results. At Kip McGrath Tuition Centres, we are qualified and experienced teachers, have taught in local schools and understand the school curriculum.
National Tuition Centres
There are a few large, national tuition centres who offer maths and English tuition like Kip McGrath. Don’t be fooled. Kip McGrath are not the same and cannot be compared. These centres are not in the main run by teachers and rely on worksheets and computer exercises that parents sometimes have to mark themselves. When choosing a tutor to teach your child it is important that parents do their own homework and know the facts.
