Pia Carter

Common Entrance Tutor

Pia Carter is a private tutor with over 15 years of experience since graduating from Oxford with a degree in English Literature. Within a year Pia was working in a full-time one-to-one tuition school teaching children who did not fit into the mainstream education system.

When she began her second degree, in Acting at the Guildford School of Acting, Pia continued to tutor part-time and upon graduation began to specialise in common entrance exam tuition.

Pia’s main focus has been on entrance examinations from 7+ and 8+ and into senior schools at 11+ and 13+. The highly competitive nature of the common entrance exams, means that her specialist knowledge can really give children an edge in gaining a place.

Although Pia’s degree is in English she also has a Maths A-Level which means that she can confidently cover both sections of the exam. Pia works on interview technique and has guided families through the full range of subjects at 13+ and Scholarship level.

Although the nature of Pia Carter’s work has been to do with exam preparation she believes that being a private tutor is also a fantastic way to boost confidence and to inspire. The informal nature of the learning environment can really bring children out of their shells and teach them that learning can be fun as well as constructive.

I have to say we are really impressed by Pia and her way of analysing what our daughter needs to work on, and giving her good tips on what to look out for. Pia is very kind and takes a couple of minutes with me to tell me how our daughter did during the lesson and of her progress, which I greatly appreciate. Mrs C, West London
