See our 5 point strategy below.
Our unique four-point strategy is designed to help students prepare for 11+ exams with confidence. We've developed a series of lessons that cover each key topic in depth, helping students understand how to tackle questions and get the best grades possible.
We've designed our four stages so they get progressively harder with clear objectives along the path.
1. We start by laying down the foundations so we can build up later.
2. We help our students develop strong mental agility, arithmetic skills, and vocabulary.
3. After completing the prerequisites, students proceed to the next stage where they address all the requirements of the exams.
4. At the specialisation stage, our students systematically prepare themselves by taking practice exams and evaluating their performance.
At every step, we cover all topics relevant to the GL and CEM exams. Our team of qualified teachers will help your child achieve success in these examinations. We offer excellent 11+ lessons in High Wycombe. If you’re looking for the best 11 plus tuition in High Wycombe, our dedicated tutors will give your children the confidence to get into the grammar school of their choice.
A dedicated tutor will help your child prepare for the new 11+ CEM exam board. They will provide guidance throughout the four-to-six months needed to complete the course.
This comprehensive 11+ curriculum covers English, maths, verbal reasoning, and nonverbal reasoning, for three hours a week.
The children will receive specialized training according to the exam boards and the relevant examination techniques will also be perfected for them. The Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) is a highly respected research institution that now dominates the 11 plus exam. CEM is based on the principle of “adaptive learning” involving interactive computer-based questions, where the next question or task is based on the answer to the previous one.
We here at Think Smart believe that we can help students achieve their academic goals by providing them with an environment where they feel comfortable and confident during their studies. This will help them relax before the exam and give them time to prepare for the test without worrying about anything else.
Weekly homework updates and progress reports.
To ensure your child gets the most out of their tuition, we assign lots of homework and give them practice tests. We closely follow their development and report back to you on how they're doing. We set homework for both paper based and online, so they can experience the test, and plenty of practice before the exam. In order to make the most of our lesson time, we also set worksheets for home and have extra teaching in class, this ensures we don't waste any valuable classroom time!
Our technology also allows our teachers to monitor students' progress at home and their pace and accuracy. This helps them to identify strengths and weaknesses and address any learning gaps before the exams. They can then work on these issues together to ensure that they're completely prepared to sit the test.
We provide 11+ tutoring tips and advice for busy families as well as those who are helping their children at home. We make sure your child’s homework schedule is manageable so they can focus on learning without being overwhelmed. Our friendly team is available for support.
We keep our classes small so we can give every student individual attention.
We aim to provide an excellent education for all our pupils. Our classes are small (maximum 12) so we can give every child the best possible attention. Lower class ratios are proven to be beneficial because they allow us to offer more one-to-one tuition. Students enjoy getting to know each other better, and they learn faster too!
In order to make the class feel more comfortable, teachers should try to establish relationships with their students. Students may not feel confident enough to ask questions if they do not know who they can trust. Teachers should also take advantage of opportunities to get to know their students better. They might find out about each student's interests or hobbies, or what kind of person they are outside of school.
With fewer pupils in each class, there are consequently fewer interruptions, and teachers can customise their lessons to suit the needs of every student individually. Our 11+ tutors in High Wycombe offer an individual approach to learning tailored to your child’ s specific needs.
Exam technique preparation under exam conditions.
At Think Smart we offer mock exams as part of 11+ tutoring High Wycombe courses. During the last week of the course, we focus on practice tests and mocks so that students can get used to the exam environment. We'll also ensure they're familiar with exam times and room settings.
Our goal is to make sure that by the end of the course students will know everything about the exam. We give them feedback after each practice test so that they can see where they went wrong and what they should do better next time. Practice tests help us to review and revise as much material as possible. At Think Smart we're proud of our highly skilled and knowledgeable team who know all the tricks and techniques needed to succeed.
We've been teaching kids for a very long time, so we know exactly what they need to succeed. We're also experts at helping them learn the best ways to study and prepare for exams. By the end of our courses, your child will be ready to ace any test!
Your child will be regularly assessed at each step of their journey.
You’ll be able to get an insight into your child’s academic level here at Think Smart. Our 11 plus tuition High Wycombe courses include assessment at the end of each of the four stages and all the way throughout the course. We can also offer an assessment at the beginning of the course, and provide information and answers to any questions parents might have at the early stages.
At the end of each stage, we will give you both a verbal and written report of your child’s progress, with a tailored needs analysis for further development. We consider every skill and subject area that they need in order to do well on the test and boost any areas they need to work on. At Think Smart you’ll not only be getting expert tutoring in the exam subjects but parental guidance as well.
