The tuition centre in Dover Street first opened in 2007 as a Kip McGrath centre, Canterbury. With new and wider resources, it was relaunched as Tuition Canterbury in 2011. Owned by Peter Whisson, who has been teaching since 1980, and tutoring locally since 2007, Tuition Canterbury provides professional, individual tuition to students across the area.
Tutoring is tailored to the individual needs of students aged 6 to 16 and above.
Learning should be enjoyable and stimulating – and focused upon what students want for school success and exams.
Following an assessment, which is free of charge, work is planned according to individual wants, and usually comprises both computer and traditional book-and-worksheet activities. A tutorial session is generally 80 minutes long.
Tutors at Tuition Canterbury are a mix of qualified teachers (experienced and DBS-checked), and high-performing degree students, specialists in Maths and Science, from the University of Kent. Progress is monitored at the Centre, and through homework set after each session. Our aim is to enable students to prove their skills in school or the examination hall.
