Expert online 11+ and entrance exam tuition from a highly-qualified teacher. I am based in Stamford, UK, but teach online. Recent students have been successful at Lincolnshire, Slough, Kent & Buckingh

Methodology

My lessons are fun, engaging and challenging. I create a supportive atmosphere in which children are motivated to push themselves to exceed their expectations. A typical lesson is conducted through a virtual 'classroom' and will include short exercises to stretch the child's thinking before exploring different ways to solve 11+ style questions. We gradually build up a bank of the most efficient methods for that particular child. As the test dates get nearer we focus on improving speed without losing accuracy. The goal is for the child to approach their exam feeling calm and confident, keen to show their best.

I am a friendly, approachable and professional tutor with several years of teaching and tutoring experience. I offer a positive learning experience and focus on building my students' confidence.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I tutor English and Maths at all levels from primary through to GCSE and beyond.

I also prepare children for 11+ and entrance exams. In recent years I have helped children achieve admission to numerous grammars and independents, including Bourne, Stamford, Oundle, Uppingham and King's.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I qualified as a teacher in 2010. I have a PGCE from Bradford College and an MA Hons from St Andrews University. After several years of classroom teaching, I am now a full-time professional tutor.

- How much do you charge?

Standard fees: My usual fee is £35 or £40 per hour, depending on age/level. This includes travel to your home and all required resources. There are no hidden charges. Group discounts are available - please enquire.

- Where do you teach?

I teach online and/or in my students' homes. I am based in Stamford but I also tutor in Peterborough, Corby, Bourne and the villages in between. This includes parts of Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Rutland, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

- When are you available?

I tutor between 10 am and 9 pm, Monday to Saturday. Please enquire for details of time slots which are currently available.

During school holidays I can usually offer intensive tuition blocks to suit the client.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach children from age 5 to 18, including key stage 1, key stage 2, 11+, key stage 3, GCSE and A level. I also teach adults who need help with functional skills or who are taking skills test for career purposes.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for 11+ common entrance exams, key stage 2 SATs, GCSEs and A levels.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Tuition takes place via Zoom and Scribblar. There's no need to download anything - you just click on a web link and enter our virtual classroom.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My aim for all of my students, whatever their age and ability, is that they enjoy their learning and grow in confidence. My sessions are fun but intensive - I expect the same level of respect, commitment and enthusiasm from my students that I give to them.

Experience

I am a UK-trained primary school teacher with years of experience helping children succeed at the 11+ and entrance exams. I qualified in 2010 and taught in the classroom for five years before becoming a full time tutor. I have a masters degree and PGCE.

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching and tutoring for over 15 years - including 1:1, small groups and whole class teaching. My students have included those with ASD, dyslexia and behavioural problems, as well as those who are gifted and/or talented. As a tutor I have taught English to children who have been excluded from mainstream education, children who are home-schooled, those who are struggling to keep up with class work and those whose high abilities are not stretched at school.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an up to date enhanced DSB certificate.

Hi liz, just to let you know I got into my course - thanks for all your help with the maths and English.

W
WB, Oundle

Just wanted to let you know that M was offered a place at [selective independent school] yesterday. They said it was a very competitive year and I think the vast majority were from [prep school] or the Junior School.

Thanks for helping M to achieve this - you made all the difference.

C
CG, Market Deeping

Thank you so much Liz, for all your help so far. M is now feeling much more confident about the whole thing. He even said he likes maths now, unheard of in this household! His teacher is really pleased with his progress since their last assessment, this means they are planning to move him up to the next group after half term.

HM, Stamford

She got in!!! We heard this morning that C has been successful in the general entrance and the scholarship. We are so proud of her. Thanks so much for your patience, I really don't think we'd have got there without you.

LB, Stamford

Hi Liz, I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work over the last few months with J. He's going into year 7 with much more confidence.
