Tutoring

"Tim was my daughter’s Headmaster for two years. He is an utterly genuine, compassionate and truly skilled educational leader.
Not only did he know every individual child at the school and their unique talents but also took the time to get to know the family and work with them as a team. He instills confidence and ensured our daughter thrived.
Oh, and he has a great sense of humour, is razor sharp and a wonderful teacher too!
I cannot recommend him highly enough."

"In all of my dealings with Mr. Horton he has been exceptionally professional. I have always felt I can speak honestly with him. He listens carefully, thoughtfully and is non-judgemental. I have found him to be a pragmatic Headteacher, for example, he altered the marking scheme in school, to ensure that the children’s effort was explicitly recognised. I feel this has encouraged hard work in my own child and diffused focus on simply completing a piece of work.

During the 2020 and 2021 school closures my son found it difficult to be on screen all day, in full-time live streamed lessons.  Mr Horton was calm, supportive and quick to appreciate the challenges this posed.  He provided complete flexibility, so that we could join online lessons as and when suitable to meet my son’s needs."

 

Exam Preparation: I prepare and tutor children for 11+ and 13+ exams, for example 11+ Grammar School Entry, Common Entrance or Entrance Exams for Independent Schools. This can be one-to-one or in small groups, face to face (if local) or on zoom. To enquire about spaces or to book a taster session, simply click the "Enquire or book" button below.

Catch up support: Some children will benefit enormously from working at their own pace with a sympathetic and understanding tutor to reinforce their learning from school, or to consolidate or extend what they have covered. This can again be one-to-one or in small groups, face to face (if local) or on zoom. To enquire about spaces or to book a taster session, simply click the "Enquire or book" button below.

Academic Assessment: Many parents do not have a clear picture of how their child performs in relation to other children of the same age. I offer a full academic assessment in Maths, English and Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning, followed by a detailed written report, complete with suggested next steps.

 

Interview Preparation:  I offer interview preparation, and mock interviews for children of all ages, including for University applications. Simply enquire or book below.

IN PREPARATION 11+ Learning materials: An exciting development for 2022- all new materials covering everything you will need to prepare for the 11+. To be kept up to date, be amongst the first to use the new materials, receive free samples and pre-order for an early bird discount, click on the 11+ button below!
