Personal Description:

I teach English, Maths and 11+ subjects in preparation for Grammar School/Independent School entrance exams. I coach specific techniques and strategies to give children confidence and gain competitive advantages.

I teach KS1 and KS2 Maths and English in preparation for SATs.

I teach 11+ VR, 11+ NVR, 11+ English and 11+ Maths subjects.

11+ Verbal Reasoning (VR) is problem solving using vocabulary, language and mathematical skills. I coach students how to complete sequence, work out numerical codes, logical reasoning, mathematical reasoning, alphabet reasoning, word codes, patterns, anagram and coded sequences etc. My tuition helps developing students’ word power, vocabulary range and reasoning skills.

11+ Non Verbal Reasoning (NVR) is solving problems by patterns and shapes. I emphasize tackling questions on analogies, codes, similarities, series, components, patters, layering, movements, manipulations, odd one out, matrices, elements and logic etc. There are about 21 types of question set by GL Assessment, e.g. identifying or rotating the missing coded shapes etc. Strategies of ensuring students to master techniques thoroughly to a high level are implemented. My students will be able to “think on feet” and to solve problems in logic ways.

11+ English: I prepare students for their Comprehension and Creative Writing skills, including story ideas, structure, dialogues, endings, character development, literary knowledge, vocabulary, sentence structure, spelling, grammar and punctuation.

11+ Maths: Apart from training mental arithmetic and core maths skills, I ensure students not to get bored with numbers and formulas by introducing an element of fun into lessons, e.g. playing maths activities and puzzles at the end of the session.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a primary school teacher for six years and head of computing for two years. I have taught in both Year 2 and Year 6 in preparation for KS1 and KS2 SATs. I have also marked KS2 SATs and have first hand experience of what examining bodies are looking for. I am able to assist students in building their confidence, reaching their full potentials and stretching their abilities whilst maintaining high academic performances.

In addition, my teaching style is geared towards building problem solving skills, improving accuracy and speed, providing remedial work for those struggling as well as making study interesting and engaging.

Tutoring Approach:

Flexible approach to suit the student’s needs, my methods include using past paper practice, taking direct questions from the student, explaining new topics, reviewing old concepts as well as teaching tricks and shortcuts.
