About our 11 Plus Tuition Courses
JS Tutoring is run by Sharon Spall, creator of the top-selling book, Understanding and Applying: Mathematical Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning and Language Inference.
JS Tutoring operates differently to your typical private tutors; we have built a number of modules that have been perfected through proven practise. We call ourselves an online tutoring collective for students from the age of 11 plus, but actually, we are more of a hybrid. You don’t need to worry whether your children are going to do their homework correctly, we will have a face-to-face call with them each week, guiding them and motivating them through each of the modules.
Not only do you receive tremendous courses that will completely transform your child’s understanding of subjects such as English and Maths, but your child’s weekly call with their tutor means each student gets what is needed from their extra tuition.
Our online tutoring is flexible and unique to each of our students

How you can help your child prepare for the 11 +?
It shouldn’t need saying, but of course, doing practice papers and questions that mirror the style of the exam is always beneficial before sitting the real thing. These papers can expose kids to the many different types of non-verbal reasoning and maths questioning, which often includes problems that require a level of decoding and getting used to doing an exam in timed, silent conditions.
The more practice your child does, the easier it gets.
This is where we come in. Our modules and exams will prepare your child, not just for upcoming exams but for studying, learning and conditioning.
2. Focus on what they DON’T know
There’s no point doing loads of maths papers if your kid’s a maths whizz. Likewise, if they’re an English genius, doing endless comprehensions probably won’t benefit them much either.
We can identify the weaker areas, and focus on improving those – and even within a subject, determine their more vulnerable areas (e.g. angles, algebra, fractions) and make sure it is those that they focus on.
3. Have a revision timetable
Having a timetable in your home is a great idea, and is undoubtedly better than nagging your child to do work daily. If you make the timetable with them, it gives them the bonus of having some control over their revision time.
Make a list of all the topics/modules they need to cover in each subject and ensure that your schedule has breaks, as concentration levels at this age usually dip after 20-30 minutes. Our all with your child each week will them help us to identify where they are struggling and if any tweaks need to be made to the revision timetable.
4. Use rewards
You’re a parent – you already do everything for your child, but sadly if they’re going to revise in the holidays, they want even more. It could be a particular Christmas present, a trip somewhere, something edible, a playdate or even financial incentives (some kids drive a hard bargain). Still, for younger kids, there’s no greater incentive to work than the short-term pay off of a prize.
5. Work with them (if time permits)
Some children at 11+ age will be reluctant, or even near-unable to work unsupervised, so it is always useful if you can work with them. That said, a lot of our customers are just too busy, that is why we have our weekly calls with our students. To work with them and reward them for their hard work.
