Pass rate 2019: 92%!

THESE ARE THE SPACES FOR THE 2020-2021 COURSE. 
For one of these places, complete a registration form and tick 'Year 5 Tutoring'. 

In case of lockdown we have bespoke virtual classrooms that are fully interactive.

Time: One hour per week, term time only. The hour is 60 minutes + of tutoring. We do not use any part of the hour as ‘turn around’ time. There will be optional holiday classes. We’ll inform you nearer the time.

Group size: 5 pupils

Cost: £21 per hour. Invoices half termly.

Start date: Week commencing 28th September.

Resources: We provide all resources including work books in NVR, Maths and Vocabulary throughout the year. Juice and biscuits given at half time (very important!) The 11+ is on paper so most of our work is also on paper.

Curriculum: We cover absolutely ALL topics that are likely to appear in the 11+: Maths, English and Non Verbal Reasoning. Our curriculum is very thorough and pupils progress past Year 6 in most topics.

Tutors: All tutors are graduates and/or teachers. We teach the same curriculum and share all skills and resources. All are DBS checked.

Teaching: We teach for the full hour. It’s fast-moving and engaging. We set home work based on the topics we’ve taught. It should not become burdensome.

Feedback: Your tutor will be happy to chat or email about progress. We shall tell you, and give advice, if we think your child is struggling. 

11+ Mock Exams: These run on Saturdays from March 2021. You opt in to whatever suits you nearer the time. There are also Online Mocks.

For the last 3 years our pass rate has been 92% which is amazing as we do not select pupils on ability!

Group options are below. Please email me to book. I’m happy to chat on the phone but please avoid after school tutoring times! If you know which group you want let me know ASAP as groups fill quickly.

11+ Preparation. This is our unique and extremely successful course that will enable your child to gain the academic level and confidence required to achieve their full potential in the 11+.

Tutoring starts in September of Year 5 and is one hour per week in term times only. Teaching is in small groups (5 pupils). Each lesson is one FULL hour of at least 60 minutes. 

Course Content:

1   CEM Topics    Vocabulary based Verbal Reasoning and Comprehension
        Non Verbal Reasoning
        Numerical Reasoning

2   English   Sentence and paragraph structure
        Spelling, punctuation and grammar
        Comprehension skills and vocabulary

3   Maths   General numeracy, all 11 Plus and KS2 topics, problem solving

 

 

Our 2018 AND 2019 11+ pass rates were 92%!

11 + Lessons

We teach in small groups of 5. This enables the children to

  • interact
  • share ideas and
  • formulate individual approaches to work

It also allows for some healthy competition!

We teach the skills and techniques needed, but, over the months, we encourage each child to develop his or her own approach. This will help with lifelong learning well after the 11+ is a distant memory.

We find that this increases pupils’ confidence and motivation and they really enjoy seeing themselves make progress every week.

Keeping the size of the group small, also allows for individual attention when needed, helping less confident children as well as those who may be gifted and talented. 

We aim for each child to reach his or her full potential over the year.


'Some magical tutoring happens in setting of three or four pupils - and it can save you a bundle in feesIt won't suit everyone, but it can work well for grammar school exams and other school entrance tests.'
