Phoebe personally handpicks our team of truly excellent tutors. Each individual is brought on for their qualifications and expertise. The reason we only work with qualified teachers is we believe to really understand the ever changing curriculum and demands on a child, TEACHERS are the ones specifically trained to do so.
We prepare children for entrance examinations up to and including A-Levels. These include all areas of the 7+, 9+, 10+, 11+ and 13+.
How this works:
1. The Consultation
Firstly, Phoebe will meet with you and your child to understand your particular tuition needs. The more information you are able to share with us, the better we can cater for your child. This can be either in person depending on location or by phone/zoom.
2. The Match
Once we have a clear idea of what your needs are, Phoebe will handpick the perfect tutor for you. An introductory online meeting will take place between tutor, parent and child to help the two form a partnership.
3. The Contract
Once you’ve agreed the tutor is best suited to you, we will arrange an electronic contract to be sent out. These contracts run termly, you will be nudged before the end of each contract period to see if you would like to continue into the next.
GCSE and A-Level
Our subject specific teachers guide your child through the complexities of the secondary school curriculum and exams. We deliver bespoke, high-quality teaching focused on the exam board content their school uses. We teach all subjects covered at GCSE and A-Level.
Examination Preparation ~ 7+, 9+, 10+, 11+, 13+
Our experienced teachers will teach your child how to navigate
the endless exam techniques and content around these exams. We focus on teaching English comprehension and creative writing, Maths reasoning and both Verbal and Non-verbal reasoning.
For the infamous 11+ we suggest preparation begins towards the end of Yr 4. Since Covid, schools are continually adapting their entrance examination process, lucky for you we have all that covered and once you have short-listed your choices, we can give you a breakdown of the process. Phoebe has a wealth of knowledge to draw upon regarding this area and is always happy to discuss with parents their thoughts about school choices. We request the latest CAT4 tests if available to inform us of your child’s capabilities.
