11 Plus Tutors

Although it is entirely possible to prepare your own child for the 11 Plus, and this site provides ample advice on how to do that, many parents choose to employ a tutor instead for various reasons. Some parents are too busy to commit the time required to tutor their own child, while others feel that they do not have the right skills to undertake coaching. Many parents feel that their child simply won’t respond well to a parent coaching them and the only outcome will be family strife!

Regular tutoring sessions or a holiday tuition course can help to motivate a child, provide a clear structure to the process and help to reduce the stresses and strains between parent and child. With a good tutor preparing them for the tests, your child should approach the 11+ with increased confidence.

Only you can assess whether your child needs to be tutored. If you decide to employ a tutor, we aim to guide you through the process of finding and choosing the right tutor for your child, and ensure that you get value for money from what can be a considerable expense for many parents.
