Since 2006, we have been providing the highest quality private tutoring to students of primary and secondary age in and around St Ives. We started off as a Kip McGrath centre, but are now fully independent. We are absolutely focused on the needs of every individual student and have an exceptionally positive, caring and supportive atmosphere – ensuring all children feel safe, comfortable and can enjoy their learning. We now tutor over 200 children a week from our offices in Manor Mews, just off Bridge Street, St Ives.
We tutor children of all abilities from year 1 through to year 11 in English, Maths and Science and up to A level in Maths and Biology. We have a fantastic team of specialist teachers for every age and subject for which we offer tuition so your child will always be working with a tutor who is an experienced and enthusiastic specialist in their area. As you would expect, all our tutors are subject to regular enhanced DBS checks.
Before your child starts tutoring with us, we will talk to you and your son/daughter about your concerns and their concerns – and agree exactly what we focus on. For primary students we also offer a completely free no obligation assessment to enable us to identify areas that they may be struggling with. Secondary students can usually tell us themselves!
Following their assessment/discussion most students attend our Centre for a 1 hr 20 min lesson each week. During their lessons all children receive 1-1 teaching from their tutor as part of a small group, with a maximum of 5 students per tutor at any one time – so they are guaranteed lots of 1-1 support and attention. In-between the 1-1 teaching time with their tutor, all students have short spells of 5-15 mins where they are working independently, practising what they have worked on with their tutor. This time is as important as the 1-1 time! It helps students consolidate and remember the topics they are working on, building confidence in their ability to do the work themselves. Being an independent learner is so important in schools now and something Ofsted are very keen on!
