Private Tutor for 11+ and Mathematics
ASKE Tuition provides high quality, personalised tuition for children aspiring to pass the 11+ entrance exams. We build a strong foundation in Mathematics, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning techniques as well as the basics of English.
Children preparing for entrance exams are provided with a framework to help them apply their knowledge under timed conditions. Common issues such as not reading the question properly, not checking the answers, and running out of time, are dealt with via exam techniques.
Preparing Your Child For The 11+
Our 11+ tuition courses have been designed to prepare children for all aspects of the 11+ in Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools, South West Herts Schools, and QE Boys entrance exams. They are relevant for children preparing for independent school entrance.
Each course is aligned towards GL Assessment bench marking.

We have very small class sizes, typically 3 to 5 children in each. This means your child will have valuable one to one attention when they need it.
The working environment is friendly and stress-free. Pupils will have opportunities to build confidence as they interact with each other and socialise the learning of harder topics.
Assessment and progress reports
Based on your child's initial assessment, we create a plan that sets their individual targets for verbal, non-verbal and numeric reasoning. All lessons throughout the course are designed to develop these areas. Tuition plans can be revised to ensure they meet the current needs and challenges of the student.
You will always have the same point of contact for progress updates thereby ensuring continuity of your child's preparation for the 11+ exams. Coupled with high levels of contact time with the tutor feedback will be regularly provided.
Starting with ASKE Tuition
The 11+ exams are challenging and competition for places in grammar schools and high performing selective schools is fierce. For that reason we recommend children begin preparing for the eleven plus tests from the Autumn or Spring term in Year 4.
We offer an educational assessment to all prospective 11+ students and discuss the results of the assessment with parents before enrolling students on our 11+ tuition programme.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Karim is an excellent tutor and really helped my daughter for 11 plus exams. He covered maths, verbal reasoning and techniques for common entrance examinations.
His methods are unique and provide an all round approach rather than the standard tutoring techniques. His exam skills technique course was very useful for my daughter. She is presently at North London Collegiate school. My daughter liked his calm and patient approach to teaching and he was always available for feedback.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the guidance and support that you have given Alisha. Having spoken to her, she feels that the sessions were extremely beneficial and now feels better equipped for the exams that follow. Thank you for sharing all the strategies and techniques that will enable her to complete her exams to the best of her ability.
Karim is a driven, organised tutor who seems to develop inspiring relationships with his students and his talent for teaching simple concepts as well as more advanced topics are truly superior. He accomplishes all these tasks with great initiative and with a positive attitude. I would highly recommend Karim without reservation.

There are few second chances. The attention of a personal tutor enables your child to make the most of every valuable opportunity to learn and develop their academic skills throughout their critical formative years – a time in their lives that provides for very few second chances.
Personal tutoring can open up your child to an enthusiastic and engaging relationship with the subjects studied, promoting the kind of positive learning experience that builds confidence and motivation.
