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.

Kent Test scores 404\423= 95.5 %. I would therefore highly recommend you to any parent who is looking for for a private tutor for their child/ children.

When I first started my first Math’s test I remember I used to get in the tens in Math’s. But then when I had more lessons with Persuade I got better at all subjects of Math’s. I find most of the subjects easy now in the Math’s and I am now extremely good in verbal reasoning. I really loved having my lessons at expert tutors and also getting ice creams in some of our lessons too. Thank you so much Persuade for teaching me.

When I first started tuition with Ms Ziki I was ok at Math’s and not so go at English and after my first lesson I still though I wasn’t going to pass my 11 plus until I had more lessons and that’s when I got much better at my subjects and also learnt some new ones as well. At first I did not know what I was doing but Miss Ziki helped me on the way. I have improved so much and learnt new things. Ms Ziki has taught me so much. Having Ms Ziki as a tutor was the best. I learnt perimeters, area, formal and informal letters and so much more. At first I was rubbish at it all but because of Miss Ziki, she helped me on the way and I know it all. I got confused with Perimeter and area because it was just hard until Ms Ziki talked me through it and I got the hang of it. Now that I passed my 11 plus I feel like I can do anything. Thank you so much.
