I am wondering if anyone has used or experienced tuition centers to prepare their child for 11+ and how effective it was. This is because most people seem to prefer private tutors and it does not work for some children as they need the group challenge.
Please would you enlighten us with your experiences of tuition centers.

Thanks

I personally feel, it depends on the child - as some kids will thrive in group and 1 to 1 and other will do better in either - so you have to know your child.

Hi

I used to work at a tuition centre offering 11 + preparation in groups of 6 children. In my experience the groups worked quite well although I didn't feel that all the tutors providing the 11+ preparation where necessarily trained enough in their own knowledge of the exams.

Thanks. I think one has to investigate the centers to make sure you think the tutors are experienced enough in teaching and in preparation for 11+, whether it will suit your child and so forth.

Thanks very much fr sharing your experience.

I think the problem with a tuition centre is that tutors come and go, You may get a good one and then again...
