I`m a very experienced 11+ tutor - I write 11+ papers for tutoring academies and have published online guides to the process and specifics of the 11+ tests so you`ll find no-one better qualified for Kent Test or other 11+ tuition.
I`m also a literacy consultant / editor and a fully-qualified primary teacher but the 11+ has become my life now I`ve chosen to leave the classroom.
I`ve been working one-to-one very successfully in Lancashire and Kent for many years and am always asked to continue once I`ve started working with children as they find my style engaging, patient and supportive.
I have extensive knowledge of English, maths, teaching to the GL 11+ Kent Test and also the private school entry tests, having worked in the private sector for many years. This includes entrance tests at both 11 and 13, Common Entrance and Scholarship.
Availability: I am now essentially full for this year but will happily take on people for next academic year.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I spent a decade teaching English in a top prep school and co-ordinated the 11+ transition there. Since then I have been working with children on a one-to-one basis and have had great success at improving standards in English and maths, as well as getting children through to grammar schools. I`m also a freelance writer on the 11+ process and compile guides and questions for different websites and tutoring academies. In recent years I`ve been a literacy consultant and have a specialism in spelling, punctuation and grammar, also working for a top education publisher as an editor / reviewer.
I now mostly teach English and maths, especially for the Kent Test, and have an extensive knowledge of the verbal reasoning / non-verbal reasoning elements so teach these where required. As a result of my other work, I have lots of unique resources which I`ve written and which directly replicate the Kent Test.

Tutors Response :
Thank you, Sarah!
David has been tutoring our 7 year old Twins Maths & English for a couple of weeks on a fortnightly basis. He has been punctual and professional throughout. We are glad that we selected David on Tutor Hunt and we look forward to seeing the improvement this makes to our children`s learning. Thank you David.
