I am a fully qualified, experienced, fun, successful and professional DBS-checked teacher, specialising in Maths, 11+ and selective school entrance exams. Specific skills are taught aiming to boost students’ knowledge and teach them key concepts, in addition to providing them with a strong grounding in examination techniques and test preparation.
I am a professional tutor based in Offham, Kent. I now specialise in private 11+ and selective school tutoring, having taught in mainstream education for 5 years. I teach on a 1:1 basis ensuring children have a personalised plan for their learning. I am fully qualified and DBS-checked.
This small group course is run in Sevenoaks by myself and Victoria Hunt. The timing and content is designed to sharpen pupil’s knowledge and skills just ahead of the Kent test and/or independent exams. It covers exam techniques and the topics tested in previous exams to date and is designed to maximise your child’s results and confidence. The onus is very much on having fun while working hard.
The 6-day August course is delivered in a series of lessons focussing on the fundamentals, making concepts understandable and attainable but without taking any shortcuts. The small group size means it has the intimacy of a 1:1 lesson with step by step demonstrations, helpful tips and examples to practise. Handouts and revision notes will be available to download from the link to Summer Course materials on this website.
Each day starts at 10.00am and finishes at 3.15pm.
The full course duration is 6 days and is aimed at Year 5 and year 6 pupils.
The first 6-day course runs from Tuesday to Friday, and then completes on the following Tuesday and Wednesday. The second 6-day course begins on Thursday and runs through Friday and the following Tuesday to Friday. There are no sessions on Mondays.
Your child will need to bring an A4 hardback book, 3 sharpened pencils and a ruler. They will also require a packed lunch/snacks and water for each day they attend.
Full payment is required one month in advance, is non-refundable, and non-transferable.
Please note that a non-refundable deposit will be required at the time of booking to guarantee your child’s place on this course. This will be offset against the final cost of the course.
