1. When can my child start?
You can start at any time of the academic year and your child(ren) will make progress. However, we strongly recommended that eleven plus students start lessons at the latest from September in year 5. The eleven plus is an extremely intense programme of study and as a result the earlier a child starts the better.
2. How long are the lessons?
Our 1-2-1 lessons are hourly and we recommend at least 1 hour a week for year 4 children and ideally 2 hours a week for year 5 children.
3. How many children are there in the lesson?
There will be one tutor dedicated to one students during all 1-2-1 tutoring sessions making them an extremely targeted form of learning support.
4. What will my child be taught?
5. How will you teach my child?
Children learn in various ways whether it be visual, auditory, reading / writing or kinesthetic. All our tutors are very experienced with teaching children using various methods to ensure they understand what is being taught. Eleven plus tutors give lots of examples whether it be using the whiteboard, discussing verbally or demonstrating practically.
6. Where will my child work?
7. Will my child receive homework?
Yes. Children are given homework on a weekly basis (except for assessment weeks). All homework is based on what a child has learnt in the lesson and is designed to reinforce their learning. Once returned, homework is marked and explained with further examples.
8. How much homework will my child get?
Homework will vary on a week by week basis. Unlike our English and Maths booster classes, Our eleven plus courses do require considerably more homework to be completed. The homework starts off slow at the beginning of the programme and builds up considerably as the programme progresses.
