DBS cleared with a BSc honours degree, PGCE and Advanced Diploma in Education, I'm a very highly qualified teacher and experienced 11 Plus Tutor (not a 'DIYer'), who has taught eleven plus techniques in schools, in groups and 1:1 over the past 20 years with great success.
It's rare to find such an experienced 11 plus tutor teaching online. This is the perfect option for busy parents and students, as well as those living in more remote areas at considerable distances from other tutors. Please click here for more information on why online 11plus tuition is an excellent option.
I have taught 11 Plus skills in several prep schools and have 25 years' experience in teaching and tutoring. Much of this experience has been in 11+ tuition: VR, NVR, Maths and English. 11+ preparation is a specialism of mine. I motivate students to achieve their 11 Plus potential through a structured approach, high expectations, rigour and fun!
I've enjoyed great success in helping my own daughters and countless 11 Plus students pass to grammar schools over the years. It's always a privilege to teach my students and to hear of significant progress at school while witnessing impressive progress in their literacy and numeracy, as well as improved confidence. I have received many excellent testimonials over the years from 11 Plus students and their parents:)

Summer holidays are an important opportunity for Y5 pupils to prepare for the 11 Plus tests which will be taken shortly after starting back at school. It is also important for families to get away and enjoy quality time together during the summer. This is why we have come up with the perfect solution - a family holiday with 11 Plus morning tuition at Le Marronnier with its typically French farmhouse and gardens.
Le Marronnier is the ideal base for a wonderful summer family holiday in beautiful Burgundy. With excellent family accommodation, facilities and grounds. We offer two double rooms (one with two beds and the other with a double bed), a kitchen and two bathrooms at your disposal. Your hosts, Andrew and Marielle, are of course both DBS cleared teachers with safeguarding training. We sleep in an upstairs self-contained room with en suite and kitchenette at the other side of our long farmhouse (longère) which allows families to enjoy privacy during their stay. For pictures and descriptions of our Gite as well as ideas for places to visit and activities, please see our French Language Holidays Website at www.frenchinfrance.co.uk We also have many books as well as stacks of games and garden activities for families to enjoy at the gite, too...
An hour of 11 Plus Tuition is offered every morning, weather permitting in our lovely gardens, by Andrew, a highly qualified teacher with extensive experience in 11 Plus teaching and tutoring. A further hour of supervision is also offered free which includes a 15 minute break and a 45 minute paper to tackle and be used as a basis for the following day's lesson. During this time parents and other siblings are free to take their time to enjoy breakfast al fresco, go out (we have lots of ideas for great local walks and visits) or have a lie in! If you would like to learn French while your child is prepping for the 11 Plus we can arrange that too!
The rest of the day is for your family to enjoy the many places of interest and savour the delights of country life in a wonderful area of France: https://www.puisaye-tourisme.fr/
