I teach my students the following;
Cloze, comprehension, verbal reasoning, maths and non-verbal reasoning are the topics your child will encounter when they take the 11 plus. As a person who has taken the 11 plus before and is in a Grammar School, i know exactly what is needed to make them pass. The 11 plus involves a lot of words that are beyond the level of an 11 year old, so i find that it is crucial to introduce my students to 30 new words a week and test them the next week on these spellings and their definitions.
If your interested in your child taking any of the private school exams including KES, Priory, Edgbaston High etc. then I will also incorporate creative writing into lessons.
I highly recommend that if your child is in year 5 that they have 2 lessons a week, one of which is entirely English and one of which is entirely maths and non-verbal reasoning. As English involves a variety of topics within it, I recommend 1 and a half hour to 2 hour lessons, whereas only one hour lessons for maths and non-verbal reasoning.
I teach my students with zoom, so i am able to interact with them face to face and so i am able to go through PowerPoints/slideshows with them. All the work i give them, i have made personally. I test their progress every four weeks as a mock 11 plus test if they are in year 4 or 5.
I am happy to teach your child even if they are not in year 5.

Excellent! Goor teacher, my son need more time.
- Very good at basic maths, yet to cover word problems.
- Verbal reasoning is a weakness probably due to lack of work there but otherwise after explaining he handled it well.
- He is able to spot quite a few words within cloze, he just needs to get used to reading the whole sentence to be able to figure the missing words he does not immediately get.
- For comprehension he just needs to get used to reading the extracts faster.
Overall, I’d say he definitely has 11+ potential.
To improve he should:
- read more (20 minutes a day) and maybe 5 minutes out loud, sounding out words.
Perfect! She is an excellent teacher.
