I have only one child and she is in year 5. she has fallen in love with non such and has said she will work hard to get in there. I need advice and tips on how to prepare her for the exams.

Can I do it at home or do I need a tutor? How much does a tutor charge?

Please share your experience with me

If you have a look around on this forum you will find many differant posts regarding coaching/tutoring your child for the 11 plus. From what i have read I would say it is only you who can decide what is best for your child. You need to gage what level she is working at - or was working at at the end of year 4 and take it from there. If your child likes to work with you and you are happy to prepare work for her then I feel this is the best option, and is what I did with my child for 9 months to a year before the test. However, if you both would prefer a tutor, and can afford it, many go down that route succesfully. People on this forum could probably recommend a tutor to you if you post your region. Hope some of this helps :D

You have passed the first test already Amen, your dd wants to go there and is prepared to work hard to get there. That is a situation many parents can only dream of. Wanting it badly is not enough but it is a very good first step. Finding out what level your dd is at is an important next step because then you can guage how much work you need to do to get to the required level. What were her end of year Sats levels? What is her target for the end of this year? Have you tried doing any VR or non VR with her. You need to find out where her strengths and weaknesses lie. Does the school sell or give out any test papers?
