Stafford Tuition Centre was established in 2004 for the benefit of all children throughout the Staffordshire area. When we opened in July 2004, we were known as the Kip McGrath Education Centre, Stafford (KMEC Stafford). In the summer of 2014, our centre became a member of the Association of Professional Tuition Centres (APTC). This is an umbrella organisation of around 40 independent tutoring centres across the UK. Our APTC membership enables us to maintain extremely high standards of learning while enjoying access to the shared knowledge and expertise of each of the participating centres.
Our Centre employs a tutorial system built upon a series of comprehensive computer-based programmes. These are integrated with structured worksheets and textbooks. The programmes we offer have proved successful in helping children overcome difficulties with spelling, reading, writing, and mathematics. All of our pupils follows individually tailored learning programmes. The teaching we offer may also be tailored to meet the needs of a specific exam such as the 11+ entrance exams, KS2 SATs, and GCSEs.
Andrew Wilde, the director of our Centre, is a highly-qualified professional with more than 20 years of experience teaching secondary-aged children in local schools. In addition, Andrew has served as a governor at primary, secondary and special needs schools within Staffordshire.
The tuition we offer is designed to offer children the motivation they need to succeed in meeting challenging yet achievable targets. Children work at their own pace. As they succeed, the children we tutor find the process rewarding and enjoyable so their confidence improves. Crucially, our courses are structured to avoid a sense of competition among students.
At Stafford Tuition Centre, we understand that some children simply require support, confidence and enthusiasm in order to learn. The materials we utilise are graded to ensure that the progress made is constant and accelerated. When children are behind in their learning, our aim is to help them catch up as quickly as possible.
Every child is provided with a free, no-obligation assessment by prior appointment. At the same time, parents’ concerns are established. The results of the consultation will be discussed with you confidentially. A scheme of work will then be devised for the individual student. This scheme is continually evaluated to ensure that your child makes optimal progress.
