School entrance experience

I have helped over 40 students prepare for 9+, 11+ and 13+ to selective schools in Central and South London over the last six years. I am equally strong in English and Maths and also prepare students for Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning tests and interviews.

My first sessions with a student are used to assess their current attainment and strengths and weaknesses. This forms the basis of a structured programme of tuition that is shared with parent and student towards their goals.
