Even for this age group, competition for entry into schools is fierce. As a result, extra support in the form of one-to-one from and entrance exam tutor will help your child prepare for these exams and help them with entry into these schools. This will then mean they are in a good place when it comes to moving forward into Common Entrance and the academic success that can follow this.
In addition to helping tutees gain knowledge about the subjects they will be tested in, tutors will help them with exam techniques – something that plays a crucial part in improving an exam mark. This will boost your child’s confidence about their upcoming tests. Preparation for the interview stage of the application can take place too so that communication skills and self esteem grow.
Our tutors are carefully hand selected for each tutee after a discussion has taken place between Kings Tutors and the parent about what needs to be achieved exactly.
Following this, the tutor will then carry out an initial assessment in the first meeting with their tutee so that a programme can be devised to ensure all requirements are covered in the allotted time frame. This means tuition sessions will entirely focus on the areas where improvement is needed.
The entrance exam tutor will give advice on exam technique and how to tackle the various types of questions found in 11+ or 13+ exams. It is very important to have learnt this, as well as knowledge, before sitting an exam with the hope of gaining entry to the school of your choice.
We also run tuition courses in the holidays for preparation towards these examinations in addition to offering one-on-one tuition.
We have an understanding of the different exams and scholarship level exams set by particular public schools. It is possible for a tutor with experience in entrance to a particular school to be selected to help your child.
