Any child can succeed if they are given the right support.

That's the philosophy behind the Kip McGrath Education Centres in Narellan and Campbelltown.

The first Kip McGrath Education Centre was founded by school teachers Kip and Doug McGrath from Newcastle in 1976. Since then it has grown into a global franchise.

The Narellan centre opened in March 2014 and the Campbelltown branch followed in April this year.

The centres tutor children from kindergarten through to year 12 in maths and English.

They also offer remedial and extension learning.

Narellan director Danica Sajn said they create individual programs tailored to the student's needs and delivered by qualified teachers.

"Working in the Narellan and Camden community has been an exciting journey where I have now met hundreds of local parents and helped hundreds of students reach their personal learning goals," she said. "Our programs are aligned to the national curriculum and use the latest in teaching technologies, as well as good old fashioned one-to-one tutoring which is essential in getting the best from struggling students."

Campbelltown director Lisa Webster said she was working as a high school teacher when she realised many students were lacking the necessary skills to succeed.

She spent several years teaching at the Narellan branch before deciding it was time to take the program to Campbelltown.

"I am a passionate educator and I want children to love learning," Ms Webster said.

"Kip McGrath gives students the skills which enable them to love going to school every day."

Ms Webster said one of the advantages of the program was that it offered students the option to be tutored at the centre or on screen at home.

"Our on screen tutoring is delivered by our unique internet based program where students connect online," she said. "This is great for students who can't get to the centre but still wish to access tutoring."

The centres offer a free assessment which allows teachers to identify a student's strengths and weaknesses and tailor a program to suit them.

Ms Webster said the Kip McGrath philosophy was that everybody has the right to read, write and calculate: they just need to be taught.

"Resolving gaps in foundational learning can have a lifelong impact on your child's further education," she said.

"And the success they experience also helps to build their confidence and self-esteem. Plus, we want them to know that learning can be fun."
