About Us

Husband and wife team Jacqueline and Gershom Aitchison returned to South Africa after years of teaching both locally and overseas, and identified a need for a particular kind of extra lesson intervention to suit the South African context. After doing extensive research into various options, they selected the Kip McGrath Education Centre model and opened the Bryanston centre in 2007. The rapid growth of this centre resulted in the expansion to the Kyalami centre which opened the following year.

Kip McGrath Education Centres offer professional tutoring for primary, secondary and remedial education in Mathematics, Afrikaans, English, Reading and Spelling to students who are having difficulty with their school work or just want to do better. This is done in a positive learning environment through the use of proven teaching methods and programs and is delivered by a dedicated team of outstanding tutors.

These highly effective programmes are designed to remediate any areas in which your child may be struggling, or to provide enrichment for those who wish to excel. These extra lessons are held on weekday afternoons (after school) and on Saturday mornings.

Additional courses focusing on Study Skills, Get Ready for School and English as a Second Language. Our Courses.
