Parents need to be cautious pursuing extreme practice for 11 Plus where the child is only trained to write the exam but not taught the concepts and techniques. Many children who practice just 11 plus could lack in fundamental knowledge in Maths and English, which may later affect their overall Maths and English performance.

Here at Study Buddies Tuition Centre, our primary goal is to support and guide students so that they can reach their full potential. Along with regular hour-long classes in small groups (5 student average per class), we have a strategic mock exam series in place, designed to help your child with overcoming exam day nerves, building confidence in their answers and perfecting exam techniques simply through study and practice. These mock exams will highlight any aspects of exam conditions that may cause children less experienced in the examination process to feel uneasy and prepare them for the real thing. By having regular mock examinations, we at Crown Tuition are able to keep a careful eye on the progress your child is making, allowing us to see for ourselves the specific areas each individual student might be struggling with and focusing on these. The test papers are designed to cater for the new changes made for the Redbridge and Essex Eleven Plus exams.

For over 14 years we have helped children to build their confidence through personalised, guided teaching wherein the student always feels like he or she can ask for explanations or assistance from an experienced tutor on hand. This knowledge is then put into practice during our mock examinations – a chance for the student to prove what they have learnt and how they have improved themselves.

During the class hour and additionally during the Intensive Programme classes, subject areas where students struggle are quickly identified and worked on so that the build in confidence levels in regards to the exam is always on going. The scheme of work we deliver for Eleven Plus students is regularly updated and checked in accordance with the requirements of the new Year Five and Six curriculum; our test papers are often partly comprised of past papers from previous Eleven Plus exams so that students truly get to experience what it will be like on the day.

At the heart of Study Buddies Tuition Centre is constant innovation and improvement. We never stop adding, tweaking and improving our product; it is essential in what we do.
