Information about Sumona

11plus Entrance Exam- English Specialist - Pinner

I am an experienced tutor (M.A English Literature M.Ed) with more than 20 years teaching experience, offering high quality individual tuition in English.

All Lessons take place at my home in Pinner ( North London )

Step by step preparation with fantastic repertoire of past papers. Covering Comprehension
Creative Writing

I am an English Specialist. You should choose my services if your child is sitting for both Grammar and Independent Schools. Particularly pupils who are keen to gain entry into Henrietta Barnet as they have two rounds of tests. You will get just one month to specifically prepare for second round which has comprehension and creative writing very much like the format of Independent Schools. I work at the basic skills and strengthen the child`s foundation ensuring that he/she is supremely confident of themselves.

11 plus Grammar School and Independent School in North London. Pupils have been successful in getting a place in- just to name a few ( this is not an exhaustive list)
Henrietta Barnet,
Watford Grammar
John Lyons
All schools in the Group 1 and 2 of the North London Independent Girls` School Consortium.

I have an enhanced CRB disclosure which is updated annually.

My tutoring is simple but effective - based on the belief that
“Each child is unique - with their own strengths and weaknesses.”
Every child responds to different learning methodology. I try to ensure that the lessons are tailored to the pupil`s specific requirements.

I offer a range of flexible tuition options. But would strongly advise parents to start in Year4 to maximise chances of success and strong foundations. Quick fixes do not work and it is a hugely competitive examination. As I have mentioned every child is different and depending on that we can agree onto a flexible schedule that is of optimal benefit to the pupil.

Being a parent, I can empathise with your anxieties and guide to also effectively contribute to your child’s education as it is team work.
Sitting for 11plus is a huge psychological, intellectual and emotional endeavour for the child and the parents.I will be there to support you throughout the journey.

My fee is £50 for an hour session ( prices inclusive of all resources and homework/ planning time and full support during exam time)

I have very few places and in case I am unable to offer you a place - it would be my endeavour to provide you with one asap. Waiting list works on first come basis.

Your first lesson will be discounted if you come through tutorhunt to compensate for what you pay to release my details.

Sumona is clearly experienced. She is patient, and good natured but firm. My Son enjoys his sessions with her and I am seeing an improvement in his effort and the skills that he is applying to his work. There is an improvement in the quality of his work as a result. I am very happy with Sumona`s tutoring and would recommend her.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for your vote of confidence. L is so full of enthusiasm - I really look forward to our sessions together. He has taken a lot of the instructions onboard and am sure with time and effort his performance will continue to improve.

Sumona is excellent - so full of infectious energy and enthusiasm!! My daughter looks forward to her weekly lessons. Sumona set`s a wide variety of homework from numerous sources and the constructive feedback that she provides is always clear and concise.
Above all Sumona`s approach to learning is not just to pass an exam but to continuously learn and improve. My daughter`s comprehension and creative writing skills have definitely improved in the short time Sumona has tutored her. This is evident in her school work and exam success.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for the words of encouragement-I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with S. The improvement she made in her creative writing skills was exemplary. Wish her all the best with her initiation into secondary school phase😊
