A new private tuition centre aimed at supporting children in the Wellingborough and Rushden area is opening in the first week of October at St Mark’s Church on the Queensway estate.
MagiKats is an educational franchise which offers maths and English tuition to school children in small group workshops.
The workshops include a mix of teaching and practical work and all the work is adapted to suit each child.
The workshops help ensure each child reaches their full potential whatever their age and ability.
The workshops also help build confidence and develop other important skills.
The Wellingborough and Rushden centre will be run by Raj Modha.
Raj is a father of three with a background in business and a degree in maths and statistics.
He has lived in Wellingborough for more than 25 years and is an active member of the Brahmin community.
Raj said: “Being self-employed, at times I have found it hard to help my children with their school work.
“I often wished there was some sort of support available which was not too expensive, and which would help children with their core skills and school work.
“MagiKats does exactly that.
“Helping children whatever their ability.
“Some children may be very clever and need extra work to ensure they are stretched, some may not have English as a first language or parents who can help them with school work.”
And he added: “I’m hoping the MagiKats Centre will help local children in Wellingborough, Rushden and the surrounding area gain confidence and do better at school.
“It’s a great opportunity for them and in future I would like to open even more centres.”
The new centre is accepting students now and for more details go to www.magikats.co.uk/wellingborough.
