Are You Looking for an Experienced and Reliable 11 Plus Tutor? 11 Plus Preparation Booster Classes are Now Live! Register Your Child Today!

It’s that time again! We are on a national lockdown, schools have closed and are (hopefully) providing online sessions.

But if your child is preparing for the 11 Plus exams for grammar and independent school exams, in 2021/2022, you are probably a bit concerned about the potential impact the lockdown will have on their 11 Plus preparation.

At Geek School Tutoring, we have a robust online programme that helped many children during the first national lockdown.

This year, we have improved on it, and have two specialised online 11 Plus programmes for children in Year 4 and Year 5.


What is Covered

Covering English, maths, verbal, non-verbal reasoning and creative writing, our live online 11 Plus Preparation Booster course will help children learn the required content needed to pass the 11 Plus exams. Exam techniques such as effective time management, what to do when questions are complicated, and how to navigate the specialise 11 Plus exam papers will also be taught.

Sessions take place for an hour on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 4pm (for children in Year 4) and 5pm (for children in Year 5).

Spaces are limited to just six children per session, which means that every child gets the benefits of working in a group, along with one-to-one attention.

Cost

The cost is £160 per month, pro rata is your child starts mid month.


How to register

Please use the booking link to register your child onto the 11 Plus Preparation Booster course. Once registered, we will send you the Zoom links separately.

Struggling to Get Your Child Reading? New 11 Plus Reading Club for Children in Year 4, 5 and 6!

It’s a fact – children just don’t read as much as generations before them did. If I had a pound for every reluctant reader I hear about when parents enquire about English tuition at Geek School Tutoring, I would be stocked with my favourite beverage for life by the end of the year (well, sort of!).

One of the sore points of the 11 Plus preparation for many children (and parents!) these days is reading. The days when children would happily sit for hours on end reading a (good) book seem to be dwindling. There are simply many more (seemingly) fun ways they would prefer to spend their time, and it usually involves a gadget or two.

It there was an equally fun and engaging way to read, children who likely enjoy the process a lot more – this is where Greek School Tutoring’s new 11 Plus Classics Reading Club comes very handy!

Christmas English Booster Classes for Independent School Exams

With just a short time left until the independent school exams in January, many children would benefit from having some support during the Christmas period, so they don’t start to lose the knowledge that has been acquired during the year!

Traditionally, this is another time in the year when everyone takes a break, including tutors. But with all that’s happened with the global pandemic, we are doing everything possible to help our students stay on track for success – even during the Christmas period.

 

 

What Does the Course Cover?

Some parents have asked us for a booster session during the Christmas period, and for the very first time, mainly due to the effects of this unprecedented time, Geek School Tutoring will be running a Christmas English Booster session, during which children will work through the following:

 

  1. English comprehension papers
  2. Writing task
  3. Grammar rules booster

 

During each of the five, hour-long, online sessions, students will work through difficult parts of sample papers and discuss them in small groups of up to 3 children.

 

How the Course Works

 

 

  1. Register your child
  2. Access the first sample paper in Google Classroom for completion before the first session.
  3. Work is marked before the session and returned to the student.
  4. The sample paper is reviewed during the online session, with a particular focus on any areas of difficulty that are highlighted during marking – ahead of the online lesson.

Once registered, students will gain access to a Google Classroom area, which contains the papers to be reviewed in the lessons. Lessons will have a taught element, but all papers will need to be submitted online before its corresponding session so that the completed paper can be marked ahead of the online lesson, ready for group discussion.
