Marie Redmond TuitionInvesting in Your Child's Future
We provide specialist tuition for pupils taking the Buckinghamshire CEM 11 Plus exam so that all children, including those who experience barriers to learning, can benefit from our confidence building, structured courses. With us, your child will acquire effective learning techniques in Verbal, Non Verbal and Numerical Reasoning. The courses are carefully designed to reflect the changes set by Bucks County Council and provided by the CEM (Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring), for Grammar School entry in 2014 onwards.
There is a wealth of information about the 11 Plus from a variety of sources. We can help take the stress out of this important decision and offer advice based on our extensive experience of the exam.
I am a qualified teacher with over ten years’ teaching experience in South Bucks, namely at The Beacon School in Chesham Bois and Maltman’s Green School in Gerrards Cross.
I have a Masters degree in Education, which has given me a deep understanding of how children learn. I know that children absorb information most effectively when they are having fun and I take great pride in planning lessons that encourage them to take an active part in their learning.
I have been preparing children for the 11 Plus for a number of years and my focus has always been to help my students improve core skills and build confidence, to ensure that they are well prepared for the next stage of their education.
11 Plus Preparation Courses
The 11 Plus Preparation Courses take place in Stoke Poges. Group sizes are limited to eight, to ensure that every child enjoys the fun of a group and also individual attention during the lesson.
Before enrolling on the course, your child will complete an assessment, in order to ascertain their specific learning needs. They will then receive a Tuition Plan detailing their specific targets in Verbal, Non Verbal and Numerical Reasoning.
Lessons are planned according to your child’s individual needs. Targets are reviewed every half term in order to monitor progress; this ensures that your child is being challenged appropriately and that skills gaps are being addressed.
A variety of specially prepared resources are used to teach the course, including educational games that are related to each of your child’s targets. Lessons include a range of activities to ensure that they are fun and your child is engaged throughout.
With us, your child will acquire the effective learning techniques and study skills that are essential for exam success.
1- to- 1 Tuition
In addition to the 11 Plus Saturday School,I have limited availability for 1-to-1 lessons. These hour long sessions follow the same format as the Saturday School lessons and take place in Chalfont St Giles. If you feel that 1-to-1 tuition would benefit your child, I will do my best to accommodate this.
As every child is different, I am very happy to discuss your child’s needs with you.
