Building your child's confidence in 11+ Reasoning

11 Plus Entrance Reasoning Tutor

An 11 Plus entrance Reasoning tutor works with pupils on all aspects of verbal and non verbal reasoning. Tutors ensure students have the necessary skills to excel in this area f the 11 plus examination.

A tutor identifies the students strengths and weaknesses, developing any problem areas. They work towards building students confidence and ability in all types of problem solving.

11 Plus entrance Reasoning tuition builds pupils’ confidence in their own abilities. Students also learn how to use reasoning to solve logical verbal and non verbal problems in their lessons.

An 11 Plus entrance Reasoning tutor helps students recognise question types as well as understand mark schemes. Above all, tuition supports students as they become confident in their innate reasoning capacities.

11+ Entrance Tuition

11 Plus entrance takes place in Year 6 for entry into grammar and selective schools at Year 7.

It normally comprises maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. However, the requirements vary greatly from school to school. The candidate may also be required to attend an interview.


Most of our tutors are based in London and tutor students on an hourly basis, travelling from one family home to another.

The minimum lesson length is an hour and the tutor may request travel expenses depending where you live and where they are travelling from.

Popular lesson slots are after school, between 4.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m., and at the weekends. If a child is out of school, the lessons can take place during the day.

Out of London

We can arrange a tutor to travel to your home if you live outside of London.

In order to make this viable for the tutor, the minimum lesson time is 2 hours (but you can book 3 or more hours).

If you live further afield, a day of tuition where 4 hours are broken up by lunch is a very popular option. This arrangement often happens at the weekends and during half-terms and holidays.

We ask that you cover the cost of the tutor’s travel time as well as their travel costs.


If you live abroad, or are embarking on a period of extended travel, you may request a residential tutor to support your children.

This can be for a period of anything from a few weeks to a year – or even longer.

The residential tutor normally works Monday to Friday. Tuition is either worked around school hours or arranged according to the family’s schedule if the child is not attending school.

The curriculum can either mirror what the child would be doing at school or be tailor-made to the student (whether following a traditional curriculum, or allowing greater freedom in what is taught such as project-based learning).


If your location means it is tricky for you to meet a tutor face-to-face, we can arrange tuition online.

Tutors on our books are teaching students all over the world: from France and Italy, to the US and Russia. We are experts at handling lesson arrangements over different time zones.

We are satisfied that even if students can’t meet tutors in person, they can still benefit from the knowledge and energy tutors bring to their online lessons.

Online tuition is conducted via Skype with a selection of other screen and material-sharing software. This ensures that lessons are fully interactive and that students gain the maximum from the sessions.
