- Do you have a personal message for students?
Having tuition doesn't have to be a burden. I will always make it engaging, motivating and fun. You will feel so much more confident as you head back into school each time we have had a lesson! ... AND you will be ready for 11+
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have 12 years experience teaching KS2 in the state sector and currently 12 years teaching in the Independent Prep School sector primarily to Year 5 and 6 children heading towards 11+. I understand the worries and anxiety issues around 11+ entrance exams... for children and parents. Often there are gaps in a child's understanding, which means they are unstable in developing their later knowledge. Securing this and building on 11+ exam technique and practice questions puts them in the right frame of mind to confidently tackle 11+. I have a raft of tips, techniques and resources with which to tackle 11+ exams - and current, relevant knowledge of what the schools require.
