MagiKats English Programmes for Scotland
English Workshops to boost skills from pre-school all the way to leaving school
Students Under 5
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
Students from 5 to 7
When it comes to providing tuition for your 5 to 7 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 Primary 1 to 3.

Students from 7 to 9
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 all 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.
Students from 9 to 11
During this period, MagiKats continues to help your child master the literacy topics through to the end of P7. The confidence your child will have in knowing they are well prepared for any exam they might sit 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.

Students from 11 to 14
In that transition phase from primary to secondary school education, 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.

Students over 14
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 helps to consolidate the subject skills needed to take students through to National 4/5 (3rd and 4th year) and Highers (5th and 6th year). 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
