Laying foundations for the 11+

When your child joins our Pre 11 plus tuition programme they will be laying the foundations they need for their 11+ journey.

Although some grammar schools set their own papers, the majority of schools follow either all or part of the syllabus set by the two main providers of 11+ examinations: CEM (Durham University) or GL Assessments.

The Extra Tuition Centre can help your child as they work towards any of the 11+ Grammar Examinations.

Pre 11 Plus (Year 4) Steps to Success

  • Let us know which schools you are interested in, from there we can help you determine which examinations your child needs to work towards.
  • Your child will need to take some online tests. We may look at mathematics, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning depending on the examinations your child is sitting.
  • The results are entered into our computer system ‘Action’ and an individual programme of work is set – we know where your child needs immediate help and we know what is expected if they are going to study for the eleven plus examinations. So, the lessons are a combination of revision, current learning and pushing them on with the eleven plus syllabus.
  • Weekly lessons are booked either at one of our locations or online with a tutor.
  • Lessons are booked for either 1, 1.5 or 2 hours a week
  • Regular re-testing and revision ensures topics are consolidated

Ms Ziki was introduced to me by a good family friend of mine when I urgently needed a tutor for my daughter. Despite the distance we had to travel, it was well worth the effort. Ms Ziki came highly recommended and it was a pleasure working with her. I found her approach professional with the parents and yet friendly, approachable with the children and she built a good rap or with my daughter. I liked Ms Ziki confidence that she had in my daughter, as well as her supportive nature. Ms Ziki kept reassuring me with any concerns raised and we got along very well. Ms Ziki is very passionate about what she does and it reflects in her tutoring, she strives to get the best out of the children and d this is very evident in her approach. My daughter gained a lot from her tutor both in the 1-2-1 sessions and group sessions. My daughter was challenged, helped, encouraged and supported right up to the end of the 11 plus exams. I liked the fact that my daughter got lots of practice with exam techniques and experiencing exam settings with mock exams. My daughter improved with each mock exam and was well supported working out any areas of weakness or challenging questions. My daughter passed her 11 plus exams Kent and Bexley, we are both grateful and appreciate all the hard work. We are excited and proud of the achieved success and working relationships. My daughter has drown very fond of Ms Ziki and vows that Ms Ziki is the best tutor any child can have and am proud she now tutoring my son.

I just wanted to say a really big thank you to you for being James tutor. I was struggling as you know with James being a single mom with a very bright child who was lazy!! (Trying had to get out of everything) You came along, James was a challenge as he always thought he could get away with doing things in an easier way, you recognised his potential and boy did you help. I am so grateful, you really care, your dedication is admirable, and we would lose without you. I would not hesitate to recommend you. If anybody wants to speak they can call me. My son not only passed his 11 plus but got one of the highest marks way to go James …. and Persuade.

Persuade was recommended by my sister as she tutored her eldest son who is currently a year 9 pupil at Gravesend Grammar school. Ryan is flying at GGS, intact he is taking his GCSE Math’s in year 9. Luke, my son was as most young boys reluctant to do extra work and moaned constantly about doing all the additional homework. However, he did do this and has learnt so much from Persuade that he is confident in Math’s now and this is reflected in his results at school and more importantly his 11 plus results. Persuade is very talented and fantastic teacher as well as being lovely person. My husband and I are so grateful to persuade and would have no hesitation in recommending her for tutoring.

Persuade you the best tutor anyone could ever have. You know everything and on one ever fails. You taught me everything I need to know for my 11 plus. When I joined 2016 January I was extremely shy and I didn’t know anyone not even my tutor. I was getting low grades in everything I did, I knew nothing about reasoning, creative writing and Math’s. Now I literally know most of the things through Persuade, help. Persuade is pretty passionate, beautiful and extremely clever
