Maths & English in Sunderland
Tuition for every stage of your child’s learning
Whatever stage your child is at, we’re here to provide you with maths and English tuition that can really make a difference. Our tailored approach means we can support children of all abilities – whether gifted and talented, looking for a confidence boost or those with special educational needs.
All our tutors are experts in the school curriculum and receive regular training on current teaching methods. Our team love their jobs and this passion creates a vibrant, positive working environment where children can thrive.
Journey to success
We celebrate every child, not based on others, year groups or levels, but based on them. That’s why we’ve managed to support over 175,000 children to become confident learners who are ready to take their next step, whatever that may be.
11 Plus and Entrance Exams
We have developed an 11 Plus and Entrance Exam offering that is tailored to suit the schools in your local area. We want every child to reach their potential and do their very best in school, and our tuition is the best possible support on your child’s journey into grammar school.
Our specialist course can help your child prepare for entrance to the following local schools:
- Durham School
- Newcastle School for Boys
- Royal Grammar School
Our course is open to all. We don’t pre-test – we welcome any child with the ambition and drive to go to grammar school or independent school. Students on the 11 Plus course attend twice a week and also have access to a fantastic online resource, so they can practise unlimited non-verbal and verbal reasoning exam style questions any time they want.
Tailored flexible session
The key to success at 11 Plus is a strong foundation in core maths and English skills. We use technology that enables us to offer material that is exactly right for your child, and our tutors are on-hand to give individual attention so we can stretch and challenge your child to reach their potential.
Beyond the exam
We don’t believe in simply ‘teaching to a test’ – after all, the test is the very beginning of your child’s journey into their secondary career. To support your child in the run up to, during and once they have made the transition to secondary education, we can continue to support them with the new challenges they face.
How do our current members feel?
It is a really useful and enjoyable addition to my child’s schoolwork, enabling my child to make good progress in an interesting way. My child is made to feel welcomed and important, and the professional updates and regular review meetings mean I can see the progress they are making.
School and I have seen a marked improvement in concentration, and my child is a lot more confident in reading and at problem solving in maths! Their writing has improved so much too! It has a convenient flexible membership that I can fit in to my term time and holiday time routine.
We have been members now for a couple of years, and feel really grateful for all the amazing input, the enthusiasm, and expertise that has been demonstrated by the staff. Our child has gained so much by attending these sessions, and working with such dedicated, friendly people, using a system that has been well thought through to enable any child to feel happy about improving their Maths and English. I am in no doubt that we can see improvements in all areas, but feel particularly impressed with the boost to confidence and the development of good core habits, such as asking for help etc. The sessions were initially to give a boost after a bad teacher experience, however now even with excellent teachers, we still find that the sessions seem to offer many additional benefits.
