I am able to improve your child’s understanding and raise their attainment in English and/or Maths from Reception to Year 6. I also endeavour to boost your child’s confidence in their weaker areas as I believe that a positive mindset contributes to success. I plan engaging and interactive lessons that your child will enjoy as learning should be fun. I can also focus on SATs preparations if your child is due to take these tests.
I have been preparing children for the 11+ exam for twelve years so I am very familiar with the areas that need to be covered for success in both the Berkshire CEM and Buckinghamshire GL 11+ exams. I offer individual tuition where I cover all the English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning essential for exam success. I provide all books and course materials as well as homework where appropriate. I aim to teach children effective strategies for answering 11+ style questions and we also work on exam technique, particularly time management. Closer to the time of the exam, I offer mock examinations so that the children can practise answering 11+ style questions in exam conditions and within time constraints. I also provide revision materials so that children sit the exam feeling as prepared and confident as possible.
Independent School Entrance Exams
I am very familiar with the entrance exams for a number of independent schools across Berkshire, Surrey and Buckinghamshire. I ensure that my teaching is specifically tailored to your son or daughter’s desired school. Most recently, I have successfully tutored children for entry into Reading Blue Coat School, Queen Anne’s School, The Marist School and The Abbey.
