English 11+ Tutors

Passing the 11+ is an important step for any child who wants to gain entry into the country’s best schools. Performing well in the English exam is crucial, where each candidate’s reading and comprehension, grammar and vocabulary will be put to the test. With so many areas of the subject being assessed, it can be difficult to know where to start. Our English 11+ tutors understand the process back to front and they’re happy to take the pressure off. Our private tuition sessions are a great escape for both parents and children – far from competitive playground talk and endless past papers.

English tutors who get it right every time

It’s hard to believe that the current pass rate for the 11+ exam is only 3-30% nationally, since our tutors have such a high success rate with all their little learners. At only eleven years old, most children have never encountered such a rigorous examination, so it’s important to us to prepare them the best we can. Our private English tuition is not tailored to simply passing exams, because where’s the fun in that? No, all of our 11+ tutors go out of their way to make their lessons as fun as they can, incorporating every child’s interests into their learning. We have techniques suited to all children, from animal-lovers to book worms, sports fanatics and the like, all taught in an informal environment where the pressure of the exam is kept at bay.

We’re only a phone call away

Most of our 11+ English students forget they’re even studying when the exam preparation kicks in, ready to face any challenges that arise on the day. All of our clients can also choose a price and tutor that works for them, so there’s no unwanted surprises. Our team are always happy to speak with you over the phone, so we can fully understand your child’s requirements and match them with the most suitable tutor.

We promise, it doesn’t have to be difficult to get the very best tutors, so contact us today to arrange an 11+ English tutor.

I started tutoring in 2015 through volunteering in an orphanage home, where I taught a seven-year old boy for two years in a variety of subjects. This experience taught me a lot about how to deal with people and provided me with strong communication skills. Since then, I have decided to continue this passion in London, having taught both adults and children since the end of 2017. In the last two years, ......
