“Took our little boy to MagiKats today and it was such a lovely experience for him. Carol Ferguson who runs MagiKats Alloa was not only kind and patient but boosted his self esteem no end. He beamed the entire time we were there and in such a short space of time we could see an improvement in him.”

- Vicky Jess


“Carol and the team put my child at ease straight away. The team gives them the confidence to look at a problem and answer without being wary of speaking up and getting it wrong.”


“Carol and team are so friendly, helped with all my questions and explained down to a t how magikats work, also her friendly caring nature allows the children to feel comfortable and at ease. 
Would definitely recommend, even to pop down for a little chat.”


“Friendly and helpful, would recommend.”


“The teachers are absolutely amazing, they are very welcoming, kind, patient, and full of enthusiasm and encouragement. I am so glad I had found magikats. My eldest has always struggled at school and within one lesson they had him achieve his goal for many years. With this he has been excited about doing his homework and eager to attend the next work shop. He is leaving every workshop full of pride and confidence. would highly recommend these guys to everyone!!”

Welcome to MagiKats Maths and English tuition programme in Alloa.

We are proud to bring the fantastic and successful MagiKats Maths and English tuition programme to Alloa!

It’s not only younger children that can benefit from maths and English tuition in Alloa and Hillfoots. Our programme is designed to fit your child at whatever stage you find they need that extra help. From primary one to National 5s, MagiKats is a system whereby school children are encouraged to achieve their full potential in maths and English.

Our system provides a structured framework for improvement which will see your child grow in confidence as well as learning. Learning is both formal and informal with a range of different resources available to the mentors to make learning fun.

It’s not just all for fun though; our successful programme developed by UK education specialists supports Scotland's Curriculum for Excellence.

The MagiKats approach to learning

Once enrolled, each child works with a suitably qualified and fully trained mentor in a small group limited to a maximum of six children.  This approach allows each mentor to understand each child’s needs and monitor their progress very carefully.  In the weekly workshops, the children will use a multi-sensory approach to their learning.  We have several resources that encourage problem solving, analytical and thinking skills which helps to boost your child’s confidence and also encourages social skills by interacting with the other children in their group.

A small amount of carefully chosen homework is then set each week to fill gaps in knowledge and ability. The dual approach of workshops and homework has proven to work well amongst children enrolled within MagiKats.

Our Mentors

All our mentors are fully DBS checked, carefully selected, suitably qualified and fully trained under the MagiKats umbrella with a clear focus on the educational development of your child.  Our mentors will become a trusted guide and advisor for your child with a clear objective of supporting your child to aspire to new heights and achieve their full potential.

Our Centre

Limetree House, situated a stone’s throw from the town centre, previously housed the council offices. The office is open Tuesday to Thursday 10am to 5pm, but only by appointment when workshops are open.

To enrol your child with MagiKats we will invite you to attend for a placement. The placement is a brilliant opportunity for parents and children to see our centre and a MagiKats workshop in action. During the placement, your child will complete a short assessment that will identify their current ability in maths and English.  The outcome of the assessment and our discussion with you about goals will allow us to provide a tailored programme of work specifically for your child’s needs. 

Get in touch to see how MagiKats Maths and English Tuition – Alloa and Hillfoots can help your child. You can fill in the enquiry form or give me a call.  We look forward to welcoming you!
