About the lesson
I have a very large bank of excellent quality, carefully selected and up-to-date Eleven Plus papers and practice materials. I order in brand new workbooks and flashcards for tutees at no extra cost. In addition, I have hands-on 3D equipment to bring Spatial Reasoning questions to life.
I use my skills as a teacher to plan tailor-made lessons for each individual tutee based on the needs of the child and the number of weeks before the tests.
Eleven Plus tuition really helps to prepare children because most of the skills required are not taught in school. At first, lessons focus on the teaching and learning of the skills. Then, nearer the exams, building stamina and working at speed on whole test papers becomes increasingly important.
At the end of every lesson, I give honest feedback to parents to enable them to have a clear understanding of how their child is performing against the standards of the tests.
Please feel free to contact me for further information.

The Eleven Plus tests are taken every September by children in year 6 hoping to attend a Grammar School from year 7. The tests are designed to challenge the children in order to select the top 25% of pupils based on IQ, academic ability and potential. These children may be described as `high ability` or `above average ability` at Primary School.
I was the teacher responsible for administering the practice papers and real tests in school. I now specialise in teaching the specific skills required to answer the questions in the GL Verbal Reasoning and GL Non-Verbal Reasoning & Spatial Reasoning papers.
Local Grammar schools which use these tests include:
Alford: Queen Elizabeth Grammar Horncastle: Queen Elizabeth Grammar Louth: King Edward VI Grammar
Skegness: Skegness Grammar
