Hello,

New to the forum and planning to get started with our preparations for 11+. Looking for a English tutor to help with comprehension, Vocabulary and creative writing in Reading, Berkshire.

Keeping in line with the forum rules, please can you PM your recommendations?

Thank you

Hi

do you know that creative writing is not part of the exams for the grammar schools in Reading?

Fair enough if you do and you just think that it would be a useful skill to work on.

Hello Reading Mum,

Yes thanks, I gathered that much. Have been going through sample papers on internet.

In my assessment, DS will need to work on vocabulary and try to interpret the question to make the right selection. It would help to have a holistic approach and get a bottom-up training. With available time during the week, I can help her with maths. English will be neglected hence prefer to have a tutor (cannot travel to classes, I have other sibling to worry about!).

Thank you

Fair enough - but I would not spend too much effort on finding someone to tutor creative writing if it is not needed for the exam. It is a different skill.
