DBS cleared, with a BSc honours degree, PGCE and Advanced Diploma in Education, I'm a highly qualified teacher and highly experienced 11 Plus Tutor (not a 'DIYer'), who has taught eleven plus techniques in schools over the past 20 years with great success.
I understand the 11+ process from a parent's point of view, having also successfully tutored both of my wonderful daughters who gained places at Pates and HSFG where they blossomed. I ensure parents are kept up to date with 11plus progress feedback at the end of each lesson.
I have taught 11 Plus skills in several prep schools over the years and have nearly 25 years' experience in teaching and tutoring. Much of this experience has been in 11+ tuition: VR, NVR, Maths and English - 11+ preparation is a specialism of mine. I motivate students to achieve their 11 Plus potential through a structured approach, high expectations, rigour and fun!.
Very many of my 11 Plus students have passed to Cheltenham and Gloucester grammar schools in the past 7 years, including Pates, HSFG, STR, The Crypt and Ribston. All have made great progress in their studies and have grown in confidence. I have received many excellent testimonials from 11 Plus students and their parents.
YES:) With nearly 25 years' teaching and tutoring, including 7 years' tutoring for the Gloucestershire grammar school 11 Plus tests in Cheltenham, as well as teaching 11 plus skills (VR, NVR, English and Maths) in a number of independent schools, I offer high quality specialist preparation for the CEM 11 plus tests for children, helping children gain a place at local Cheltenham and Gloucester grammar schools. Using the latest publications and my own resources, areas which your child needs to focus on are identified within a friendly, family-based learning environment.
If your child has the potential to 'go to Grammar School' in the Cheltenham and Gloucester areas, as your very experienced Eleven Plus Tutor, I guide your child through 11+ question types and share golden tips within a structured course to boost confidence and substantially increase chances of success in the new 11 Plus Tests.
My 11 Plus courses are successful as I am a highly qualified and very experienced teacher and really know what I am doing (beware of DIYers without teacher qualifications)... 11 Plus tuition is tailored to your child's needs - activities are differentiated and we build towards the 11+ tests in a structured, positive way. I help to reduce '11 Plus stress' for parents and students through structured preparation and my rigorous but fun lessons where we have two carefully shared mottos: 'Well done - you've got it right!' balanced with 'The more you get wrong, the more you're going to learn! It's ok to get stuck!' Of course, where they've got it right, we continue to build on this!
