English Common Entrance Tutors

The English Common Entrance is a difficult examination that requires an early start if students want to maximise their chances of success. With only one shot to get into the best schools, the process is highly competitive and all children need the confidence and practice to perform well on the day. Our English Common Entrance tutors have a great success rate, helping students to do the best they can without any unnecessary pressure.

We see the Common Entrance from a different angle

The English Common Entrance doesn’t exactly have a great reputation within the educational world, often criticised for its lack of creativity. It’s dull to learn, and without the right help, kids really struggle when the revision begins. This doesn’t really fit in with our boredom-free policy, so our tutors make sure that every child enjoys their exam preparation while covering all of the necessary areas. After all, Shakespeare’s plays were the early modern equivalent of Hollywood blockbusters – there’s no reason they shouldn’t be fun! Our tutors understand that learning needs to be creative, and they do their best to adapt their teaching depending to what works best for each individual. Whatever method they choose, there definitely won’t be a yawn or scowl in sight!

Our English tuition is a favourite with children

At Tavistock Tutors, our main aim is that our students don’t feel stressed or overwhelmed. All of our tutors are highly experienced, and every child can feel confident and happy during their tuition sessions. The English Common Entrance is certainly difficult, but it never has to be intimidating or stressful. That’s why we will always meet our clients in a location that suits them, and work around even the craziest of schedules.

We really are that simple, so contact us today to arrange an English Common Entrance tutor to take the edge off.

My first experience of teaching was during the International Baccalaureate; as part of this qualification I taught English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) at a school in South London. Later, during my undergraduate degree in modern languages I participated in a tandem scheme with French and Spanish ERASMUS students, which involved one-on-one conversational language practice.
