Online 11+ English Groups


Starting Tuesday 8th September!

This group is for children who will be in Year 6  in September and will be taking 11+ Pre-Test and independent school exams, including CEM, GL and ISEB, in November 2020/January 2021 This is an intensive course to thoroughly prepare children for highly competitive exams.  The classes are small, friendly and supportive so that each child is able to fulfil their potential. 

My method is based on lots of varied activities and encouragement so that children enjoy and fully engage in the exam preparation process.

There are no more than five children in each class.

Each session lasts 90 minutes and takes place on Zoom.

Course Features

Small classes

I teach small friendly classes of no more than six children. I can give each child individual attention where required. There is also a real sense of camaraderie as everyone is in the same boat, working towards the same goal. The children make firm friendships too!



Weekly homework forms an essential part of the course. It will usually take about 1-2 hours to complete each week. Children email me their completed assignments and I mark them before the next lesson.

Online Classroom

I teach all lessons online in a secure room in Zoom. Online tuition is a superb way of learning. It offers more flexibility for parents and is less stressful for the pupil. It is a super way of teaching English as I can share and send materials straightaway.


The cost of group tuition is almost half that of one-to-one tuition with me. It’s an excellent investment in your child’s future. Payment plans are available.
