I am absolutely bursting with pride and joy for all the students that had a brilliant result in their 11+ exams.
It is lovely to hear from both parents and students about how chuffed they are with their results. Of course, NEGU Tuition Services can only take a small part of the glory. It is down to the hard work and determination of our students. I am delighted that their dedication has paid off.
Of course, not all students got a pass but none the less many parents have contacted me to say that sometimes these things are not meant to be and they have still thanked us for our hard work and support in helping their children become a better, more able and confident version of themselves.
The best time to start 11+ preparation
In my personal opinion the best time to start is about half way through year 3 or year 4 at the latest. This way a child gets a consistent approach and build up to master all the skills required to make the grade in 11+. 1 hour tuition a week is enough to steadily build and develop all the required skills without putting undue pressure on the child.
Having said that I also get many parents contact me in the very last stages asking for support. Again it is dependent on the child and many students that have a limited number of sessions just prior to the exam due also pass. Having said that, some of them just missed the grade by a few points which is heart breaking.
Overall, I would say that success rates are higher where students have had long term tuition.
Quite a few of our students stop their tuition once they have taken the exam. Many students still continue and are already refining their English or maths skills and starting to look at Shakespeare plays. This will put them in food stead for moving up to secondary school.
Our enthusiastic and engaging tutors have helped students to develop a love for learning and the confidence to aspire to higher grade work. both they and their parents appreciate the value of high quality tuition and all the benefits it brings and as such they continue to access private tuition.

Here are a few reviews that I think are fair reflection of what we do:
Since we started, I’ve noticed Sarah’s confidence has improved. She has the right approach to a teenager, she knows what to say to her without making her upset.
