Hilary provided excellent tuition and guidance, and we are delighted with the result.
Mrs D. Hardy - Cheltenham
Tutoring for the eleven plus based in Cheltenham.
I aim to build children’s faith in themselves, to allow them to perform at their best on the day of the grammar school entrance exam.
The verbal reasoning questions that are used for the eleven plus can seem baffling when you first look at them. Many children will assume they can not do them as they have never come across anything like it before. With help and encouragement they realise that they can answer the questions.
The tutoring process allows them to become familiar with the different types of question that can appear in the papers. Tutoring can also expand their knowledge in key areas which also aids the process of answering questions.
I believe that learning to deal with the pressures on the day is a very important part of any Eleven Plus exam preparation.
The Grammar school entry process in Gloucestershire is very competitive, as there is no catchment area, children apply from outside the county.
I am willing to provide one to one tutoring for children who need a third party influencer or support parents in tutoring techniques, if they wish to minimise the number of formal tutoring sessions. The sessions can be adjusted to meet the individual's needs.
