STAY POSITIVE – FACES BEHIND THE BUSINESS, KIP MCGRATH EPSOM

Posted by Devenia Besant on 01 Jun 2020

⭐️ Tell us a bit about you and your business?

We’re Steve & Emma from Kip McGrath Epsom. We’re teachers who run tutoring sessions for Primary and Secondary students teaching in:

English 📚 & Maths ✖️

We offer an in centre and online service to our students of ages between 5-16. We believe in making learning fun so offer a kip points system so the children can earn points for their work and take prizes home! We’re located directly opposite the Odeon Cinema.

⭐️. What’s changed for your business since the outbreak of Covid-19?

We have moved online! 💻

We have moved all our tutoring sessions to online! The 80 minute English or maths sessions are live, with myself or Steve in real time. We have an interactive whiteboard to show new concepts or methods. It has been great that it’s allowed us to teach as normally as we can – thanks to wonderful technology! We feel it’s very important for our students to have a bit of normality in their lives during this time so hope that seeing their tutor each week for a lesson or two helps with this 😊the students have been building their kip points online and cannot wait to spend those points on goodies when we’re back in centre. We are looking forward to seeing all of our Kip families!

⭐️ What are you looking forward to when lock down is over?

We’re really looking forward to being able to see our friends and family-especially our newborn nephew Theo! We looking forward to being back in our colourful & vibrant centre. We miss seeing our students and lovely neighbours on Epsom High Street. We are also excited to announce who has won an Awesome Teacher’s award!

⭐️ Lastly what’s your positive message to help others through this?

Appreciate the things we often take for granted: shelter, food, water, shops, gym, education, activities & freedom. This pandemic has taught us to focus on what truly matters: health, love & happiness. Take nothing for granted and be thankful for what you have.
