Here are some common questions about how MagiKats can help a child with their school work:
Question: Does the work cover the school curriculum?
Answer: All of our materials have been carefully prepared to be consistent with the school curriculum. When requirements change, so do the MagiKats materials.
Question: Do you teach the same methods as school?
Answer: We are always monitoring the latest changes in teaching methods and adjust our materials accordingly.
Question: Do you offer courses for scholarship exams?
Answer: Centres offer revision programmes at all levels, to cover SATs (both formal and informal) and GCSEs. Some also provide work for those taking Common Entrance, or other area-specific exams.
Question: How do you know what work to give a child?
Answer: Every child works with the Principal, at enrolment, on what we call a placement. This is not a test, but a way of establishing their individual need. This forms the basis for the starting programme. On a week-to-week basis, their progress is monitored and changes are made to the programme if necessary. Twice per year we carry out more formal testing.
Question: How long does it take to see results?
Answer: Unfortunately, there is no “magic wand” we can wave – despite our name! What you will find, however, is that children will receive an almost immediate confidence boost and their skills develop over time.
