Lorraine - Brandon - 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 National Curriculum.
* 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.
* KidiKats Programme (ages 3–5) is a combined Numeracy and Literacy programme.
* Special support available for SATS, GCSE revision, 11+ and common entrance.
* Summer booster programmes are also available.

- Ages and Levels Covered

Extension, support and consolidation from early years to GCSE, in age appropriate groups. MagiKats workshops are designed for students up to age 16. Adults can arrange individual lessons so please give us a call to discuss your needs.

- Opening Times

Saturdays 10:15am - 11:40pm.
Single subject students enrol for one workshop, dual subject students attend two workshops.

- Tuition Fees

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

- Centre Director(s)

Lorraine Stephens - MagiKats Principal and Steve Stephens - Specialist teacher and Assessor.

My students attend once a week and study either maths or English, or both subjects. My staff and I take great care to welcome the students and to ensure that they work very hard but also enjoy being with us.

Our groups are small and my staff well-trained with understanding of the needs of each student. We work in small groups so that we can respond to each student with appropriate help and encouragement. Our goal is for each student to become confident with maths and English but most of our students go on to excel in these important subjects. Our workshops set the students challenges they can achieve and their individually prepared homework allows them to practise at home, further increasing their fluency and confidence.

- Directions

Brandon workshops are held at St Andrew's Church Hall, Carr Avenue, Brandon, Durham, DH7 8QE.

Background

The Durham centres offer friendly, welcoming and productive environments: students get an individual approach, working in small groups, taught by a mentor. Visit the website to see a video of a workshop in action.
