7+Tutoring for Success
Do you worry about not having enough time or expertise to support your child through the 7+ process? As a qualified primary school teacher experienced in preparing children for the 7+ exam, I can help your child improve their maths, English and reasoning skills to the level required for 7+ enabling them to feel confident and able to do their best at exam time.
Sessions are personalised for each child's needs (every child has different strengths and abilities).
Tuition focuses on equipping children with skills in English and maths that will give them a solid foundation throughout their education.
Tuition consists of high quality teaching as well as test experience.
Lessons are positive and engaging in order to build confidence as children learn best in a safe and nurturing environment.
Lessons can take place in your home, online or at my home (SW17 0TT).
I have helped children successfully gain places at the following schools:
City of London Junior School, King's College Junior School, Lady Eleanor Holles School, St Paul's Junior School, University College School Junior Branch and Westminster Under School.
Please note that I only do home visits to areas local to me e.g. Wimbledon, Raynes Park, Putney, Tooting, Earlsfield, Balham and Clapham.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"We looked for a tutor to coach our son in the last 2 months leading up to his 7+ exams. Paul was able to achieve a significant uplift in performance within a short timeframe to ensure our son passed his exam at UCS. We found a key strength of Paul, no doubt partly stemming from his considerable front line teaching experience, was his ability to accurately assess the right starting level and then build up slowly from that to really ingrain renewed confidence in our son. He hence went into the exams both more confident and more concentrated, which had not always been the case with earlier pre-tests. We are hence more than happy to recommend him to others."
Edward, parent of 7+ pupil - January 2022.
"Paul is everything I was seeking when I was looking for a tutor for my son, who is going to sit the 7+. We only have 5 weeks to prepare and I am confident that Paul is doing everything he can to achieve our goals. He arrives prepared with worksheets, and focusses on that week's weak points. My son is improving weekly in his creative writing and Maths. He is realistic and honest about our progress and he responds to my queries promptly. He provides detailed feedback and homework for us after each session. I feel that we are working together to support my son and this is definitely money well spent. PS: My son is well behaved around Paul which shows his firm yet kind approach. Thank you."

"Paul has been a fantastic tutor for my son. The tutoring sessions have been varied and interesting. Paul tailored learning to my son's interests to engage him in creative writing and to maintain his concentration and focus. Paul took the time to provide materials to support my son's learning at home and to provide detailed feedback following the sessions."

"Paul is an absolutely brilliant tutor and I cannot recommend him enough. My son was a quiet child who was going from a state school education to a private school and so we wanted him to be prepared for the exams. From the moment they started working together, Paul was able to get the best out of him with a soft yet disciplined manner which resulted in my child getting into his first choice secondary school.
Paul taught him for two years, throughout the pandemic and beyond and was always a patient, calm and reassuring teacher who clearly wants the absolute best for his students.
My son is doing really well at his new school and often gets extra credit on his Maths and English work which I believe is still down to the wonderful education he received from Paul."
