Sumona- English Specialist - Pinner
11plus Entrance Exam-
I am an experienced tutor (M.A English Literature; M.Ed) with more than 20 years teaching experience, offering high quality individual tuition in English.
Step by step preparation with fantastic repertoire of past papers. Covering
I do not cover verbal reasoning as I feel it does not need any expertise and depends mainly on practice.
I am an English Specialist. You should choose my services if your child is sitting for both Grammar and Independent Schools.
Particularly pupils who are keen to gain entry into Henrietta Barnet as they have two rounds of tests. You will get just one month to specifically prepare for second round which has comprehension and creative writing very much like the format of Independent Schools.
I work at the basic skills and strengthen the child's foundation ensuring that he/she emerge supremely confident of themselves.
11 plus Grammar School and Independent School in North London. I have tutored for and pupils have been successful in getting a place in- just to name a few ( this is not an exhaustive list)
All schools in the Group 1 and 2 of the North London Independent Girls' School Consortium.
Every child responds to different learning methodology. I try to ensure that the lessons are tailored to the pupil's specific requirements.
I offer a range of flexible tuition options. But would strongly advise parents to start in Year4 to maximise chances of success and strong foundations. Quick fixes do not work and it is a hugely competitive examination.
I firmly believe in the potential of each of my pupils- they have never fallen short of the faith I place in their abilities. Some of them have far excelled my expectations.
Being a parent, I can empathise with your anxieties and help you along the the whole process to also effectively contribute to your child’s education. Sitting for 11 plus is an psychological, intellectual and emotional experience for the child and the parents.I commit to be there to support you throughout the journey
More than 20 years teaching experience at all age and ability. After being a classroom teacher for years in different schools, I decided to start tutoring alongside. Now I am a full time tutor with wonderful results from my pupils. Its all been their work- I have just acted as a catalyst in bringing forth their true potential.
It's completely 'pupil' centric. All my methods are constantly being adapted and changed to suit the individual needs of my pupil.
No child is the same and therefore my approach to teaching is a dynamic one. Seamless transition from Primary to Secondary takes place.
The testimonials prove that this approach works!
I also prepare for 7plus entrance and 13plus preparation.
Reading and Writing Skills- the base. Targeted preparation for SATS. I also believe in making them understand the rudiments of Grammar. Vocabulary is another key area which is boosted. It is mainly all rounded preparation where they feel confident in expressing themselves and their Reading and Writing skills.
I offer comprehensive tuition for the new GCSE(9-1)- AQA.I like to specialise in what I do and
extensively study and research the areas I teach.
A clear understanding of what is required of them- makes the process less intimidating.
