He started doing the Bonds in Maths, English, VR and NVR and is getting between 75% and 90% and I also do some extra English with him too. I just need to do more comprehensions and story writing with him. Are there any you could recommend me? Which ones did your son's tutor use? Thanks.
I think he is doing excellent if he is already achieving this marks in Bond! Yes, his tutor did some Bond staff with him (VR and NVR), but in English she was using some comprehensions from an unknown source (secrets of the trade?!) which required not only answering questions, but also critical questions on the piece read and then writng his own story on some lossely related topic
My son's school is good and he is in the top 3 of his class and he is amongst the youngest but as you know the 11+ is another league all together.
My son was also the second youngest (late July born)!
What do you do if you do not mind me asking as you mentioned in your last message that Maths is your field?
I teach Economics at the University but also do Mathematical Economics and my first degree was in Stats.
I, myself teach languages so I can teach but teaching your own child is different from teaching other people's children.Don't you think?
Not if you both enjoy your subject. It is contagious!! The mutual love for Maths is a major bond between my son and me!
Have a nice day both you and your boy,
