MagiKats offers out of school Maths and English tuition suitable for all children from early years to GCSE (ages 4 to 16). Children who want help with their school work want that help NOW. They want topics being covered at school to be more accessible immediately, yet at the same time are likely to have gaps in core skills that need to be filled. This is why we work on two strands simultaneously - to give an immediate boost underpinned by steady consolidation.
Every student has a programme that is built just for them. They concentrate on coming to grips with topics that they are covering at school whilst also working on a parallel thread that is put together to fill any gaps that may exist in their core skills.
Students attend a weekly workshop, where an appropriate and wide mix of approaches are incorporated, from textbook-style exercises through educational games to the use of calculators. Students work through topics that they find trickier with the support of their tutor. Our class is organised with about 3 or 4 other children per table, but each programme of work is individualised. Our class has a happy buzz and students love being there. Hard work and commitment is rewarded with 'stamps', stickers and prizes!
At the end of each workshop, students usually receive a weekly work pack of five short assignments per subject. These are designed to maintain their learning momentum until their next visit. Answer keys are provided so that parents can give immediate feedback and encouragement at home.
Special support is available when exams are looming and we offer a special programme during the long summer break. MagiKats is a programme written by UK educators, in the UK. Our materials are adjusted as necessary to support the school curriculum.
Family life is complicated. We know that it is hard to fit everything in, so MagiKats tries to help. We are flexible, always here to provide feedback and advice and treat each student as an individual.
Continuity is important, so our Tuition Centre is open all year round. However there is no lengthy tie-in and only one month's notice is required.

This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.
I think one of the main things we have taken from Evie and Archie's maths lessons at Magikats is the importance of doing a little but often. Studying with Magikats has provided an organised framework for the children to work within, and this always works better when set by someone else other than a parent! At the moment, their studies are based on consolidating their knowledge and building on this. As a result they are both showing greater confidence and enjoyment of maths and I'm becoming more familiar with the different maths strategies that they use these days! We are definitely committed to following this through.
Good service, friendly, efficient teachers - would recommend.
Our daughter Minnie really enjoys the classes. She's now much more confident and competent at maths. We are very grateful.

“I have been a primary school teacher for four years, and thoroughly enjoy supporting children in their educational development. I am very aware of the demands in a classroom and how some children just need that bit of extra support to help them reach their full potential. I was Head of Literacy at my last school and focused heavily on phonics, reading and writing. I set up lots of small group work within classes and realised how important this was for the children to really develop their skills; this is the main principle of MagiKats. From a teacher’s perspective, MagiKats is a unique tutoring program that really supports children with what they are covering in school. Students are able to catch up, get ahead and achieve their best at school”.
“After graduating from Brighton University, I worked for MagiKats for the Franchise owners. I loved working for a business that was making such a clear improvement to the education of local children. Moving back to Hove, I began to tutor privately. I was very successful and had students on a waiting list, but there was just so many times I wished I could get my hands on the MagiKats resources and worksheets! This led to me opening my own centre in Hove. I am so excited and confident in the programme we can provide for your children, one that I have seen work for so many others”.
