11+ One-to-One Tutoring

11+ One-to-One tutoring prepares students to get into good Independent and Grammar schools at Year 7. 

Competition is fierce and students are tested in Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

With decades of experience and a proven programme with past papers, we can help your child reach their goal.

About 11 + One-to-One Tutoring

The level of English used is high and difficult. If a child does not have an extensive vocabulary they will not be capable of answering the comprehension and verbal reasoning questions. Inference skills are required as is good general knowledge. A lot of this is multiple choice so the child must learn to identify trick questions. Grammar school does not have a written exam but Independent schools do. For this good handwriting, spelling and punctuation are essential. Maths is called numerical reasoning  and logic has to be applied to the question set. Non-verbal reasoning is another area to be mastered. Good timing as well as exam technique is essential in all areas of the 11+.

Passing the 11 + with Online Tutoring

We are traditional tutors who believe children need to build on their learning skills over a period of time. Crash courses are possible but do not give the children the foundation they need especially in the present educational environment where the competition is fierce. Top independent and grammar schools are looking for extremely capable children. We prefer to take children through a long programme that covers all the necessary steps. We ensure all students are comfortable with the basics before moving forward with more complex material so they are confident in problem solving and forming opinions of their own. We push academically when appropriate and target all areas with precision and care.

This however may not always be possible so there is an option of a fast-track and intensive programme for students who are short on time or who have to rewrite the exam once they enter secondary school. Parent participation is absolutely essential. We also offer a homework support programme where we monitor and control what takes place at home. We always encourage parents support and become an important element to family life and this is often mentioned in our testimonials.

What will be taught in 11+ One- to- One English 

We will look at different aspects of the 11+ English exam during lessons. We split lessons into comprehension and creative writing. In comprehension, we will tackle various question types and genres, understanding the question, how to provide a suitable response and other exam techniques such as inference. In creative writing sessions we will be responding to different genres, stimulating ideas, adding description, ‘show, don’t tell’ and using the senses. The tutor will explain questions, concepts and ideas clearly. There will be plenty of opportunity for students to clarify misconceptions, practise new techniques and sharpen the key skills required to do well in 11+ English exams. Verbal reasoning, developing an extensive vocabulary and cloze testing are important parts of the English programme.

What will be taught in 11+ One- to- One Maths

We will look at various topics and questions that could come up in an 11+ exam, including number work, shape, algebra, fractions, problem solving and exam technique etc. Students may analyse an exam question in detail, with the teacher providing thorough explanations, clear model answers and tips on what to look out for. Sessions will be stimulating and interactive and will provide a great opportunity for students to ask questions and get clarity on topics they don’t understand.
