A 16+ Entrance Maths tutor will thoroughly prepare students sitting this crucial exam. In addition, tutors will provide transferable skills for further study in complementary subjects such as science and computing.
A tutor will help develop students’ knowledge and understanding of all aspects of this exam. Tutors will ensure students are equipped with top tips for exam technique and revision.
16+ Entrance Maths tuition will consolidate students’ existing knowledge, and build their confidence and learning in a calm and supportive manner.
Tuition will encourage students to take an active curiosity in their studies, giving them the skills to apply mathematical concepts across many problems with ease.
16+ entrance exams are set by independent schools to assess a student’s level and suitability for entry into Year 12.
They usually take place in the autumn of the school year prior to entry.
Prospective students will sit exams in all of the A Levels they wish to take at a higher level.
As the exams are written in-house by each school, there is no standardised process for the 16+, but the papers are usually based on the GCSE syllabi with the aim to challenge students with some unfamiliar questions.
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.
We can arrange a tutor to travel to your home if you live out 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.
