Specialist 11+ tutor for Bucks Grammar, SW Herts Consortium and Private School Exams

Methodology

Hello, my name is Karim.

I am a highly experienced and well-qualified tutor helping students prepare for the 11 plus, private school exams and Mathematics Key Stage 2 SATs. Exam techniques are one of my specialist skills.

My 11+ tuition courses have been designed to prepare children for all aspects of the 11+ in Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools, South West Herts Schools, and QE Boys entrance exams. They are relevant for children preparing for independent school entrance.

Understanding my pupils and devising a personalised programme of study lies at the core of my teaching practice. If you are keen on '1 to 1' and '2 to 1' tuition, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

I can offer group based tuition and have very small class sizes, typically 3 to 5 children in each. This means your child will have valuable one to one attention when they need it.

Your child will benefit from a modern and well-equipped classroom for optimal learning.

The working environment is friendly and stress-free. Pupils will have opportunities to build confidence as they interact with each other and socialise the learning of harder topics.


Maths and VR 11+ prep for SW Herts Consortium includes:

- Basic and core skills in maths
- Mental arithmetic development
- Solving word based problems
- Enhancing problem-solving skills
- Extracting data from diagrams
- Verbal Reasoning and Nets


For Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools additional 11+ prep includes:

- English Comprehension
- Meaning of words
- Grammar and punctuation
- Creative Writing
- Tactics for multiple-choice questions
- Non-Verbal Reasoning

Each course is aligned towards GL Assessment benchmarking.

Exam techniques are integrated within the preparatory work and common issues such as these are dealt with:

- reading questions incorrectly
- failing to check answers
- rushing a test or paper
- forgetting to answer questions
- time management


Tutoring Approach:

My approach is problem-based and diagnostic. This means that the student is actively engaged in solving problems for almost the entire lesson whilst I am responding to their answers by asking questions which reveal any underlying misconceptions.

I work on the basis that student difficulties usually arise from an insufficiently rich understanding of 'easy' topics. By investing time to revisit some of these easier areas and studying them in a more thorough and enriching way, students can subsequently make rapid progress whilst gaining an appreciation and enjoyment of their studies.

My teaching style is calm and informal. Although class discipline is always maintained I strive to make learning a fun process.

As parents have come to realise, it's essential for children to be able to successfully apply what they have learnt under the potentially stressful conditions of an exam or test. Additional support via exam techniques helps children take advantage of the knowledge they possess and have recently acquired.

Assessment and progress reports

Based on your child's initial assessment, we create a plan that sets their individual targets for verbal, non-verbal and numeric reasoning. All lessons throughout the course are designed to develop these areas. Tuition plans can be revised to ensure they meet the current needs and challenges of the student.

You will always have the same point of contact for progress updates thereby ensuring continuity of your child's preparation for the 11+ exams. Coupled with high levels of contact time with the tutor feedback will be regularly provided.

I have to say that Simon really enjoyed and benefitted from the lesson, he practiced when we got back home and finished with ease and accuracy,
I thank you for assessment of Simon and the way you explained your approach to make pupils not only understand but to enjoy the subject and hopefully they will be able to move to the next level

Thank you

Looking forward to hearing from you

Hi Karim,

I hope you are well. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the guidance and support that you have given Alisha. Having spoken to her, she feels that the sessions were extremely beneficial and now feels better equipped for the exams that follow. Thank you for sharing all the strategies and techniques that will enable her to complete her exams to the best of her ability.

Best wishes

I highly recommend Karim Allidina as a tutor. Our son worked with Karim for just over a year and really benefited. He is a driven, organized tutor who seems to develops inspiring relationships with his students.

His ability to connect with his students and his talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior. He accomplishes all these tasks with great initiative and with a positive attitude. I would highly recommend Karim without reservation.

Karim is an excellent tutor and really helped my daughter for 11 plus exams. He covered maths, verbal reasoning and techniques for common entrance examinations.

His methods are unique and provide an all round approach rather than the standard tutoring techniques. His exam skills technique course was very useful for my daughter. She is presently at North London Collegiate school. My daughter liked his calm and patient approach to teaching and he was always available for feedback.
