11+ Small Group Tuition

Year 5 and 6  English and Maths Masterclass – Empowering Young Learners

Parents – do you need some help preparing your children for the 11+ entrance examinations?

Our lessons boost your child’s learning and unlock their true 11+ potential with  Swift Tutors based in Wolverhampton.

Preparation is key.  We also focus on ensuring that students thrive once they have passed the entrance test. It is not just passing the exam but making sure that they are ready to fully flourish and thrive in their chosen school once they have passed the 11+. 

We cover entrance exams including Wolverhampton, Walsall, Birmingham, Staffordshire and the West Midlands.

Our 11+ tuition lessons are carefully designed to fully prepare Year 4 and 5 pupils for the 11+ entrance examination. Our 2 hour sessions cover all the key areas of study including a special focus on exam strategy and timing. Groups range from 2-10 and never exceed 10 pupils per session to ensure that each group retains its small, focused and individually tailored feel.

We teach your children how to read and interpret the 11+ paper correctly by breaking it down into manageable chunks that they can understand, as many students lose marks on not interpreting the question accurately. Additionally, we teach essential timing skills combined with technical accuracy. Importantly, we instill a huge dose of confidence in our students by helping them become bold, fearless learners.

At Swift Tutors you will not see a room lined with computers as our classes pride themselves on harnessing the individual through active interaction with the teacher and other pupils. This approach fosters interaction, confidence, independent critical thinking and raises their overall attainment at school, in their SATs and in the 11+ exam.

Raising your child’s academic performance is at the very core of the Swift Tutors. We achieve our excellent results and reviews by using a traditional teaching style that is structured yet hands-on. Our interactive approach to learning involves a lot of the higher level critical thinking skills, combined with modern methods that KS2 students love.

We use a variety of materials including actual past 11+ grammar school test papers, a range of activities from the recommended 11+ expert books/materials including Bond, Letts, GL, Chckra and CGP as well as a wide range of materials that have been specifically created by us to meet the academic requirements of this test based on our own expertise and educational expertise. Our learning resources incorporate detailed techniques and tips on how to master comprehension tasks, creative writing strategies and planning sheets, lots of useful maths strategies and effective approaches on how to tackle both the verbal and non-verbal reasoning papers.

We also run 11+ mock exams throughout the year which really help to hone children’s timing and organization skills in preparation for this test. We cover the CEM, GL and Chuckra tests and examining bodies.
