Helping students excel in Science

11+ Entrance Science Tutor

An 11+ entrance Science tutor will instil the key concepts, skills and processes necessary for pupils to enjoy this subject and excel in the examination.

A tutor will impart their enthusiasm for both the analytic and practical elements of science, as well as ensure the student is confident in exam technique.

11+ entrance Science tuition will give the tutee the sound foundation of scientific knowledge necessary to tackle the 11+ exam, as well as instilling an interest and curiosity in this important subject.

Tuition aims to develop students’ critical and evaluative abilities, applicable to many other areas of knowledge.

11+ Entrance Tuition

11+ 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 (although the requirements can vary greatly from school to school) and the candidate may be required to attend an interview.

London

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.

Abroad

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).

Online

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.
