How it works

  • Your child takes an initial assessment – we will help you select the correct assessments according to the subject, year group and level required
  • From the initial assessment an individual Action Plan is built which details the work required to bring your child’s skills to the desired level
  • If your child’s goal is to take the 11 Plus examination we will add in verbal and non verbal reasoning into your child’s Action Plan
  • Each of our lessons contains revision and extension work
Maths Tuition

Our assessments are planned and administered depending on the age and current Key Stage level of the child. For children KS1 and KS2 these assessments are made up of a series of tests designed to measure the degree of mathematical use and understanding. For KS3 (Year 7-9) and KS4 (Years 10-11 GCSE) we have past Year papers along with various GCSE Mathematics papers that we use to evaluate children. Based on the results that we get from these assessments we then write a personalised action plan for each child, covering areas that need revision and practice to help them achieve a higher degree of understanding and application.Children between the ages of 5 and 11 cover basic numeracy, which includes times tables, fractions, approximation, rounding up and reading graphs. We also assign regular mental arithmetic exercises every lesson for those children that need it. For students that are Keystage 3 or GCSE level, we produce personalised maths programmes for each student to work from.

For children preparing to take the 11 Plus exam, our mathematics programmes cover mathematical elements beyond Keystage 2. Nonverbal Reasoning (which is included as a part of mathematics) is also included if it is to be taken for the examination.

English Tuition

We can help improve your child’s reading, writing, spelling and comprehension skills from KeyStage 1 to GCSE (KeyStage 4) level, and we say this with confidence as over the years we have helped thousands of children do better at school.English is one of the most important core subjects at school that many children struggle with. We help to address this in a number of ways throughout our lessons.

English lessons follow our diagnostic test.

GCSE assessments consist of a recent past English exam paper from the same exam board as the one the school is working with. Another aspect of GCSE help is to develop different ways to interpret and manipulate examination questions.

Spelling Help
For children taking Verbal Reasoning in their 11 Plus examinations, many exercises rely on accurate spelling skills.
Reading Help
KS1 and some KS2 children would receive help with their phonics and word building skills, as well as simple comprehension techniques.

Persuade has been great help right from when I met her since June 2014 when I began. I have just been improving in all subjects. Persuade teaches in an excellent manner and is very kind. Whenever I am confused on anything, Persuade is there to assist me. I have worked with her for just over a year nabs after every lesson, I feel more confident in my work. The way she explains anything is plain magic, I understand whatever she says, whenever she says it. Due to her input, I have passed my 11 plus .I am really proud of myself sand I than her teaching. As I commenced tuition with her, verbal reasoning was simply bugging me. I had known nothing about the subject. Although, as I developed, it began to sit in my mind and I it become that simpler. None verbal was no easier at first either but with the help of persuade, the easier it got. Persuade is kind and helpful and is a pleasant tutor. I am so thankful to her and I couldn’t have chosen someone better. Thank you so much.

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.

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.

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.
