Preschoolers benefit most from a rounded education, combining both literacy and numeracy skills. Our preschool students usually study the same topics at both the workshops and at home, giving immediate learning reinforcement. As with the rest of the MagiKats programme, we use a mixture of activities to help learning. Click here to download a sample
When it comes to providing tuition for your 5 to 8 year old, we focus on topics that build their foundation literacy skills, such as reading and writing. Although most children will be in primary school at this age, they may lack the study skills and confidence needed to make the most of this time, so we help them develop fine and gross motor skills, improve their concentration ability and study approaches as well as grasp the basic literacy skills needed for KS1 and early KS2.

MagiKats English tutoring not only supports your child in developing their literacy skills such as spelling, grammar and punctuation, but also helps to give them the focus and self belief required to tackle their KS2 subject areas confidently. Click here to download a sample
These topics include: rhythm; phonics & spelling; high frequency word recognition & vocabulary development; constructing sentences; synonyms & antonyms; consequences; reading & writing comprehension of both fiction & non-fiction texts.
During this period, MagiKats continues to help your child master the literacy topics not only in KS2 but also in the transition to secondary school. The confidence your child will have in knowing they are well prepared for any exam they might sit, such as common entrance or SATs, will ensure they achieve their full potential. Additionally, as children move from primary to secondary education, the skills needed to succeed at school change and so this is also reflected in our English tutoring.

At the start of secondary school education and KS3, MagiKats provides support across a variety of English topics to help consolidate and improve our students' English skills. We aim to make the change in learning style from primary to secondary education as smooth as possible so that students can apply what they have already learned, focus on their work and have the confidence to tackle new challenges.

We know that the last few years of secondary school are vital. MagiKats has designed a programme for teens which is aimed at keeping them highly motivated to reach their potential. MagiKats English tutoring compliments all KS4 topics and helps to consolidate the subject skills needed to take students through to GCSEs or other formal exams. Once in Year 10, we have our GCSE Support Programme to focus learning right up until exam time. We aim to equip our students with life skills that will take them through their last years of secondary school, further and higher education and into the working world. Click here to download a sample
