How long are sessions?
Tuition sessions are 70 minutes long.
What ages do you cover?
6-16 year olds (up to and including iGCSE’s).
What are your subjects?
Maths & English. (But only one subject in a student’s 70 min lesson). We also offer ‘Early Reading’ which focuses on the fundamentals of English (including phonics and comprehension skills).
How does the assessment process work?
The assessment process is a simple one. Book an assessment at a time that suits you (from the available slots), using our booking link. The assessment lets us know the student’s areas of strengths and weaknesses, which we will then feedback to you. Should you then wish to sign up, just submit the paperwork and discuss lesson availability with us!
Can I book an English and a Maths assessment in the same slot?
No, We only allow for one subject to be assessed at a time (although we can assess x2 siblings in the same subject in one assessment slot).
How long will my child have to come to Kip?
There is no fixed contract period so it is entirely up to the parent & child and the learning goals that they are seeking to achieve.
How big are your tuition groups?
Typically, 4 children, and never more than 5. However, children are not taught as a group and follow their own unique individualised learning programme. We find the small group sessions help boost the student’s confidence and independence in the long run.
Is weekly homework given?
Yes – between 1-3 pieces as per a parent’s preference. Some is paper-based and some is online (to be completed within 5 days). Homework is not optional and progress depends on it. Please note that no online homework will be given for the first few weeks of lessons (as we want to make sure the student is comfortable navigating and operating our online platform).
How many weeks of the year do you offer classes?
To prevent ‘learning loss’ we operate for 48 weeks per year. Forty weekly lessons are ‘In-Centre’ and another 8 are ‘Holiday Flexi’ lessons (via the internet). The only weeks when no lessons are delivered are one week at X-mas; one week at Easter; and two weeks in summer. To see our calendar, click here.
