I have a year 4 DS who has been going to a 11 plus tutoring centre for last few weeks, however I'm not very confident that we have made the right choice. We want to try for a place in KECH or KES, and understand from what I have read on this forum both of these test are very difficult and tutor proof, therefore could someone please, please, send me a pm with details of any tutors around Birmingham that you have used to successfully prepare your children's for these highly competitive schools test.
Also I would really appreaciate if you could advice me the best way to help a child at home, especially with the English being a 2nd language we really need to increase his vocabulary, and also does alot of the words and the comprehension section on the actual exam from the classical novels if so which books does he need to read.
Many thanksGenuine recommendations by PM only (private message) are acceptable - but beware of the possibility that someone who appears to be offering a recommendation may have a vested interest! Please let us know if you think anyone is abusing the system by soliciting for business or 'spamming'. (It's easy to report a possible problem: just click on the 'report button' - the red exclamation mark.)
Always treat recommendations from unknown persons with caution. However, there are many long standing members (check the date of joining and number of posts) who make a valuable contribution to the forum. If you receive a recommendation from one of them, it could be worth considering seriously (while still exercising a degree of caution).
If you receive a recommendation from anyone else, please exercise extreme caution!
