« When I first joined Magikats I had no confidence in my own abilities and I honestly didn't believe I would pass my exams. I remember dreading each session to begin with, the last thing I wanted to do on a Friday afternoon was more work. However I kept at it and I don't think I would have gotten the results I did if it wasn't for the endless support of the MagiKats staff. Now I am off to college with an A in Maths and a B in English. Two marks that I thought I would never get. »

Iftikhar - Central Edinburgh - School English

Methodology

- Classes

Every student has a programme that is built just for them. They concentrate on getting to grips with topics that they are covering in school whilst also working on a parallel thread that is put together to fill any gaps that may exist in their core skills.
* The MagiKats programme supports the Curriculum for Excellence.
* More than tutor 'hot-housing' and more than learning by rote.
* Classes are held all year round.
* MagiKats weekly workshops provide an instant boost.
* Core work (usually completed at home) provides steady consolidation.
* Students use a variety of hands-on resources to enhance their understanding.
* MagiKats students use a multi-sensory approach to learning.
* Special support available for exam preparation.
* Summer booster programmes are also available.

- Ages and Levels Covered

Extension, support and consolidation from early years to senior phase, in age appropriate groups.

- Opening Times

Tuesdays 4:00 - 5:20pm, Fridays 2:30 - 5:35pm and Saturdays 10:30am - 1:35pm

- Tuition Fees

Fees vary depending on the range of subjects studied, please call for details.

Experience

- About Us

Welcome to MagiKats Edinburgh (Leith Walk), the first MagiKats Tuition Centre in Scotland. My Tuition Centre is an enjoyable, friendly and dynamic environment in which each student is treated as an individual. The MagiKats programme is carefully tailored to meet the specific needs of each child and is suitable for all ages from 4 to 16. As an experienced Maths and English tutor, I am passionate about helping the students achieve their full potential using the MagiKats programme. I strongly believe that adding the 'fun factor' to a child's education is essential for effective learning and MagiKats does so brilliantly. The MagiKats programme uses a variety of learning techniques, including 'hands-on' activities, games and individually tailored worksheets. This is effective when combined with my ability to provide stability and security to children who maybe lacking in confidence or just simply want to be challenged. The MagiKats tutors at my centre are carefully selected and fully trained. With working groups limited to a maximum of 6 students per tutor, tutors have the time to understand the child's individual needs and also monitor their progress carefully. All tutors are enhanced DBS checked. I am always available to welcome new students to my Tuition Centre and it is possible to visit the workshop by prior arrangement.

When I first joined Magikats I had no confidence in my own abilities and I honestly didn't believe I would pass my exams. I remember dreading each session to begin with, the last thing I wanted to do on a Friday afternoon was more work.

Now I am off to college with an A in Maths and a B in English. Two marks that I thought I would never get.

My time at MagiKats has been nothing but magical. I came to MagiKats seeking their help to get me to university. All I needed to get to university was grade C at National 5 level mathematics. I started the tuition around about January time and with regular homework, determination and a push from the tutors I managed to get a grade B having studied the two year course a little over four months.
