Looking for a Private Primary Tutor
The 11+ entrance examination is sat by children wanting to enter a grammar school in year 7. The exams take place towards the end of year 5 or the beginning of year 6. Whilst the exam that children sit varies across the country, they all include a combination of the following: English, maths, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness.
The English and maths parts of the exam tend to be based on the knowledge learnt by children as they go through primary school and follow the National Curriculum. However, school learning does not cover the verbal and non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness content on the tests.
Preparing Your Child For The 11+ Exam
The thought of facing the 11+ examination can feel fairly daunting for many children and also for their parents. As a parent you may feel unsure where to start with preparing your child for the examination. You can definitely help your child at home by encouraging them to read a variety of different books, building up their bank of vocabulary and encouraging them to use maths at a practical level as much as possible.
There are a number of different 11+ exams so we advise all parents of children taking the 11+ to find out exactly which exam they will be sitting for the school they wish to apply for. Once you know this information, we would encourage you to obtain a number of test papers for your child to practice with. These are readily available through a quick online search. Our specialist 11+ tutors will also provide test papers should you decide to opt for additional tutoring support.
Specialist Support Available
Whether your child will be taking the GL Assessment or CEM in standard form or multiple-choice format, our expert 11+ tutors can provide you with the tutoring support your child needs to achieve the best marks they are able to. Our tutors use a variety of methods to suit your child so they improve their English and maths skills and master the techniques of reasoning.
"5 Stars. From the onset Matt put both Blue and I at ease. He’s been a bit of a miracle worker through Covid and has helped Blue enormously to engage and see that learning can be fun. I highly recommend Tutortoo, the tutor has been a huge asset to us as a family through this experience"
