I've been teaching 11+ and 13+ English, Maths and Reasoning for many years now, helping students develop their literacy and numeracy, with a particular focus on close reading, plentiful maths practice, and good essay work.
I've helped students at all levels of ability. Some recent experiences of which I'm particularly proud include: helping a severely underperforming boy get from a very poor 23% mock grade up to scoring 68% in his ISEB maths Common Entrance in just three and a half weeks; boosting a very worried boy's confidence to turn his results around; and helping a talented boy achieve his place at Eton. I have also helped students gain entry to St Pauls, City of London Boys, Harrow, Dulwich, and many others.
A large strand of my work is with international students preparing for a move to the UK system. I'm well used to identifying curriculum gaps and targeting EFL issues or catch-up topics, and have good experience of the particular needs of students from Hong Kong, China, Japan, Singapore, Spain, France and the USA.
