Scottish Exam Results 2012
It has been a record breaking year for Scottish exam results according to this article by the BBC. At our 28 Kip McGrath centres in Scotland, we are also receiving texts and calls from excited students who have received the passes that they have been working so hard for in the past year. Congratulations everyone! There are so many fantastic success stories, we can’t possibly share them all so this week we have asked Indleeb Walayat (Indy) of Kip McGrath Edinburgh Central to be a guest blogger and share her and her students’ stories below:
Spotlight on Edinburgh Central Kip McGrath Tuition Centre
Kip McGrath Education Centres has been established in Edinburgh for many years and we have many centres providing first class tuition in English and Maths throughout Edinburgh.
I am Indy Walayat and I became Centre Director of the Kip McGrath Edinburgh Central Tuition Centre in January 2009 and since then the centre has grown from strength to strength. I am a fully qualified teacher and have been teaching since 1991 and have taught from age 3 to adults. Within my employment history, I have worked as a primary teacher, nursery teacher, Acting Principal Teacher, teach maths to advanced Higher level and also embarked upon the chartered teacher programme.
I also employ highly qualified and exerienced teachers to tutor our English students. Most teachers are currently teaching in local schools so have up to date knowledge of the school curriculum.
Summer School 2012
At our very successful summer school we have run sessions throughout the summer. Students from age 4 to adult have attended. Most students have attended to get a head start for the new school term and beat the summer brain drain.

Our Successes in 2011/2012
Our students have worked incredibly hard this term and we have had record breaking numbers of children attending our centre for extra tuition in English and Maths from primary 1 to advanced Higher level. These are a few of our proudest moments:
Children gaining entry to private school of choice including some gaining 100% scholarship.
Students with additional needs such as autism, dyslexia and dyscalculia making fantastic progress.
Students coming to the centre with limited reading now being able to read, spell and write sentences.
One student in S2 arriving 2 1/2 years ago with the mathematical ability of a child in P2 now able to enter Intermediate 2 maths exam later this year .
‘H’ who joined Kip McGrath in August last year who has advanced from being at the bottom of the class in P4 with the mathematical ability of a P1 student to now being the average. Her school reported that ‘H’ had made more progress than any child in the school.
Our pre-schoolers enjoying the multisensory approach, working through early reading and writing skills and making a head start to school.
Children who initially were unwilling are now writing pages.
Children who are new to English well prepared and supported with key skills such as speaking, listening, reading comprehension and vocabulary development.

This has been a fantastic year for our exam students with many students attaining 1’s and A’s in their exams this session including ‘B’. who started attending Kip McGrath to support with Int 2 maths for which she achieved an A and now also achieving A in Higher maths. Below are a selection of text messages I have received from successful students:
