Frequently Asked Questions
You have questions, we have answers.
Do you offer lessons at home?
No, we conduct all of our lessons online via Zoom.
What is the maximum group size?
This depends on the age range of the group and the focus of it. Typically we can have up to a maximum of 2 students per group for our 11 Plus tuition, as this allows us to better meet the needs of the students and allows us to offer individual feedback throughout the lesson.
Are all of your tutors experienced?
Yes, all of our tutors are trained teachers and are either currently working in local schools or have extensive experience in teaching their specific subject and are now exclusively tutoring.
Do any of your tutors have experience with Special Educational Needs?

Do you offer half an hour lessons?

Why is online tuition important?
It gives your child the chance to learn at their own pace and in a way that matches their learning style. We have found that some children are often too shy to put their hands up in class, especially if they’re struggling. The reassurance of 1:1 tutoring means they can ask all the questions they want.
How much does a session cost?
Lessons are competitively priced and offer outstanding value for money. Information prices can be found here.
Will there be homework?
Homework is typically provided each week in order to reinforce the learning in the lessons.
