Thanks Ruth. You have been patient and encouraging in equal measure, and your knowledge of the process has been massively helpful.

It`s the first time I have searched for a tutor via this type of website. Apprehensive at first, I have quickly realised that Ruth has a genuine interest and real passion for providing quality service. She has provided me with insightful feedback to my detailed questions that I had to begin with, as a parent of a young student. Communication with her has been easy, transparent and prompt right from the outset, and – most importantly – had a human touch. All this has helped me make my decision to go ahead with the tutor choice for our daughter. I appreciate the trial lesson she has been offered before making a permanent commitment; the tutor/student match seems to have "clicked" right away and we are now excited to continue tutoring on regular basis.Thank you, more

I would highly recommend Exeter Tutors for 11+ tuition. My son really enjoyed all of his sessions with Kirstie and her encouragement and support has been invaluable. The mock tests were also very helpful and the feedback we received from these enabled us to see which areas he needed to improve on. They were also excellent practice for the real more

Ruth at Exeter tutors was so helpful and managed to find us a great tutor (Mike) to help our son prepare for his 7+ exams. Mike was so patient as English is definitely not my sons favourite subject and managed to keep him engaged for an hour each week (no mean feat!). I'm happy to say that my son passed his 7+ exams too. I would definitely recommend Exeter more

Ruth from Exeter Tutors helped my 7 year old son with his handwriting, grammar and spelling. She was wonderful, giving him praise and encouragement. He really enjoyed his sessions with her and was excited to show me what he had learnt in each one. His School Teacher has already commented on the improvement in his handwriting. Our heartfelt thanks Ruth!read more

Ruth at Exeter Tutors is a fantastic teacher. When our son started lessons he had no confidence, and a fear of maths. Ruth was kind, patient, encouraging and thoughtful in her teaching methods. He will be starting secondary school in September with a deeper understanding of the fundamentals, confident and knowing that maths can be enjoyable! Our Exeter Tutors experience has been excellent from start to finish. We would highly recommend more

I can't praise Catherine enough for being such a thoughtful and inspiring tutor for my child. She helped confidence building to get ideas in the brain down on paper for people to see, and then so much more in an extended period of fun learning and development. Five stars!read more

Why get 11+ tuition?

There is strong competition for places at our local Grammar and Independent Schools. We have a very high success rate for Colyton Grammar, Torquay Boys’ and Girls’ Grammar, Exeter School and The Maynard School.

The Exeter Tutors approach to 11+ preparation is structured and personalised. Our 11+  tutors are qualified and experienced teachers. They are trained to follow our successful, over-subscribed 11+ programme to prepare your child for the exam.

Your child will have the opportunity to practice all the skills required for the exams. Our tutors use regular informal assessments to ensure your child is making progress and to inform the next steps in their teaching. They work hard to tailor the tuition to meet the individual needs of each child.

The Colyton Grammar and Torquay Boys’ and Girls’ 11+ Exam:

Our tutors will provide support for your child in Maths, Verbal reasoning (including reading comprehension) and  Non-verbal reasoning in preparation for the two 50 minute CEM Exams. These are taken in September of  Year 6. Many children begin their 11+ preparations at the start of Year 5, although it’s never too late to start. 

Entrance exams at Exeter School and The Maynard School: 

Our tutors will provide support for your child in Maths, English (including reading comprehension and writing) and Reasoning in preparation for the exams. These are taken in January and February of Year 6. 

Our 11+ places fill up very early. We highly recommend you book now to avoid disappointment.

Mock exams

As part of our 11+ preparation, we conduct Mock Exams from March. Our 11+ mock exams are a true example of the real exams taken by students at Colyton and the Torquay Grammar Schools. They are absolutely invaluable for the experience they give your child in what it’s like to sit in an exam hall and complete the tests. They will help your child feel confident about the day and know what to expect.

“a professional and friendly service that prepared my daughter brilliantly for the 11+. Ava took the tests feeling confident and prepared, we are over the moon with the results!”

Deadline for applying to sit Colyton and Torquay 11+ exams is midnight 7 September 2018
