This course will develop students' instincts and provide a comprehensive approach to the maths topics that can come up in the 11+, with the group setting giving students the chance to learn not just from their tutor, but also from seeing how their peers tackle challenging questions. Each class will begin with a review of the homework set in the previous lesson, to ensure that each topic has been thoroughly understood by each student. The rest of the lesson will be focused on new topics, all of which will be taught through extensive examples and practice.
The content covered in this course will ensure that the students learn and gain an excellent working understanding of any techniques they may need to apply in the exam. I will encourage students to work through some problems themselves so that I can identify mistakes and misconceptions for immediate rectification, ensuring they can make the most of the opportunity to practice in the next homework.
Each class topic is listed below. An outline of what will be covered in each lesson is available on the actual course page.
I’m a private tutor with four years and over 500 hours of tutoring experience. I graduated in 2021 with a First Class Honours degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge and now tutoring full time, specialising in mathematics. I have tutored all kinds of students from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages and abilities, and pride myself on my ability to tailor my lessons to the specific needs of each student.
