With studying for the 11 Plus, the main aim is obviously to help students pass the exam with flying colours. But, in addition, each child needs to develop his or her understanding as much as possible during preparation for the test so they can flourish at their chosen grammar school. They will need firm foundations to build on in their secondary years and practice for the test is a part of that process.
We use continual assessment to identify areas of success and topics in need of development. A lot of games are used to address concepts that require work as I have a strong belief in making learning fun. And a little competition through game playing can bring even the most shy child’s skills to the surface!
Hi! My name is Louisa Windsor and I run Windsor Tutoring.
I’ve been helping children pass the 11 Plus for more than twelve years. I previously taught at a local primary school for eight years, where I was judged by both Ofsted and the Senior Management Team to be an outstanding teacher.
I decided to become a tutor after taking a break in my career to have my two boys and I haven’t looked back. I still love helping children to learn and develop their skills and knowledge.
For me, tutoring brings together all the parts of teaching that I really enjoy, whilst excluding a lot of the red tape that unfortunately is a part of teaching in schools today. It’s as child-focused as teaching should be and allows me to make a real difference.
All tutors involved in the revision and mock tests have been carefully selected for their experience and skills in preparing children for the 11 Plus. They have a range of strengths that are perfect for supporting children on their journey towards 11 Plus success, and they all hold a full DBS disclosure certificate.
