Days and Times for Our Online 11+ Tuition Courses

The Online 11 Plus tuition courses are divided into three terms and if your child misses the start of a term, they are welcome to join at a later date (subject to availability).

  • Ruby is very motivated towards her 11+ homework and looks forward to her classes with Anne every week!

    Year 4 parent, Ickenham (2020)

  • Just to say – she is finding the lessons fun and looking forward to them, great start.

    Year 5 parent, Amersham (2020)

  • I just wanted to drop you a note to say how impressed I am with both Sinead and Laura. They’re both such engaging teachers and Anaiya is really enjoying her sessions. This is coming from a girl who can quite often be reluctant to sit down and focus when it comes to academic studies.  Both Sinead and Laura are so good teaching online, I wish I could show my daughter’s school your methods of teaching online.

    Year 5 parent, Staines (2020)

  • We are delighted to inform you that she passed the exam. She achieved a score of 153, which we are very pleased about.  We were extremely pleased with the score achieved in Verbal Reasoning, as it seems as though she managed to get more or less every question correct in the paper. She came out of the test, expressing that it was not as difficult as she thought it may have been. She walked in to the test with a high degree of confidence, with a large part of this being down to you and your staff - we would like to thank you for this, and everything you have done since September 2019.  She has really benefited in being in small/medium classes - She seems to have thrived in the group environment, and the manner in which your classes are run (we were acutely aware that 1-2-1 tuition is not necessarily best for all). The amount of homework she had to do throughout the week was just right, and we felt that there was steady development throughout the year. Of all years, this has probably been one of the strangest doing the 11+. The pandemic brought numerous challenges to us all, and we feel the need to really commend the way in which you adapted to this so quickly and so well. This was a crucial period for so many children preparing for the 11+, and I feel that you could not have done any more in such challenging circumstances. Whilst it was not done by design, having different teachers teach through virtual lessons ended up benefitting her, as she gained more confidence through this experience. She has asked me to pass on to you that all teachers were really nice. So overall, a huge thank you to you and your team for everything you have done in assisting her and all the children in getting through the year, and the exam. We will most definitely be recommending you to others.

    Year 6 parent, Amersham (2021)

  • Many thanks to you and Anne for today's lesson - I hope it went ok from Anne's point of view. Isabelle is happy enough!

    Year 4 parent, Stoke Poges (2020)

  • We appreciate your team's efforts with the online lessons which still allow some level of interaction instead of just pre-recorded videos so thank you very much.

    Year 5 parent, Iver (2020)

  • Thank you again for everything. Zak is really enjoying his lessons and is much happier when completing his work. His confidence has improved.

    Year 5 parent, Slough (2020)

  • She really enjoyed the online course too- I never like the idea of online- I know my other two who had to go online during lockdown for their tuition (another company sadly) struggled and the content/teaching wasn’t as good but she was really pleased- she said everything was thoroughly explained etc and she enjoyed it. I always worry they won’t learn as well online but you guys seem to do it so well both ways!

    Year 5 parent, Uxbridge (2022)

  • Hi Marie, Well done organising the online session.  It worked fine, thank you.

    Year 5 parent, Little Chalfont (2020)

  • Trying to keep my daughter engaged so far has been a real challenge and these classes do help a lot.  Thanks again for everything.

    Year 4 parent, Burnham (2020)

  • This is to let you know, that Agastya has enjoyed the virtual lessons and would like to continue with the same mode of learning.

    Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2020)

  • Just to let you know that she is very happy to continue tuition online. She enjoyed her lesson today and it surprisingly worked really well with us all.  I have heard some online tuition has not quite worked out as planned so just wanted to thank you, Sinead and all the team making this possible and keeping with the general classroom routine as well as trying to entertain kids remotely! Please pass our thanks to Sinead also.  Was very impressed.  In the meantime, hope u and family stay safe and healthy

    Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2020)

  • I am happy to share that Shayan passed the Buckinghamshire test with a score of 123. Many thanks to you and the team. He thoroughly enjoyed his virtual lessons and these kept him engaged with the learning process throughout covid and lockdown.

    Year 6 parent, Iver (2021)

  • Initially, we thought it would be a complete nightmare for online tuition as we have a son who is younger, and we are both working from home indefinitely. However, I think the online tuition may actually bring some sort of structure for her over the coming weeks if schools are still closed after Easter. And how wonderful to hear how Sinead tutors the children. She makes it sound so easy explaining things!  Thank you for making this work. I am sure that all the parents also very much appreciate the continuity in this unforeseen crisis.

    Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2020)

  • Thanks for all the communications - feels like everyone has adapted quickly and good to see the kids keeping busy and stimulated.   All's well he seems to be really enjoying it so glad we made the move!

    Year 5 parent, Great Missenden (2020)

  • Thank for Ava's year 5 virtual lesson last weekend. Much appreciated that you have pulled all this together so quickly!  Hope you get some rest over Easter!

    Year 5 parent, Holmer Green (2020)

  • Thanks for doing the zoom – I think it is working well.

    Year 5 parent, High Wycombe (2020)

  • You are doing a great job and I’m so glad we decided to send Monty to your classes.

    Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2020)

  • I am happy to share that he passed the Buckinghamshire test with a score of 123. Many thanks to you and the team. He thoroughly enjoyed his virtual lessons and these kept him engaged with the learning process throughout covid and lockdown.

    Year 6 parent, Iver (2021)

  • Martynas really loved his virtual lesson, he said that it was not too long and not too short and was really happy with the whole experience. He even said it was the best tuition lesson!

    Year 5 parent, Denham (2020)

  • Just to say thank you from us for how seamless this has been! Hoping you’re keeping well. Sam was delighted with his football cards you sent him! a great motivator!

    Year 4 parent, Uxbridge (2020)

  • We are really thankful for the brilliant work that you, teachers, do every day with so much love and dedication.

    Year 5 parent, Denham (2020)

  • Marie, I think you are doing a wonderful job of continuing the tutoring in these times.

    Year 5 parent, High Wycombe (2020)

  • A quick e-mail to say thank you for the half-term refresh course - and many thanks to Anne.  I think it was the right balance of difficulty for Camille, enough to challenge her but not too hard so she was confident at the end of the week.  The fact that the lessons were proposed online was really ideal.  Camille is my fourth and last child taking the test so I am glad it is over now!

    Year 6 parent, Great Missenden (2020)

  • Safa is enjoying her lessons online and is positive about this. Thank you to you and Anne for your help and support.

    Year 4 parent, Gerrards Cross (2020)

  • Thank you for all the information regarding my daughter's progress. I'm very happy with her results. I have to mention that Evie has enjoyed the Easter course a lot and she would like to do a week or two in August as well.

    Year 5 parent, High Wycombe (2020)

  • We are grateful for the support given through the virtual lessons and also during the class lessons. We appreciate all the teachers who are working tirelessly to make sure our children don't miss out.  Wishing you, your team and your families a happy and blessed Easter.

    Year 4 parent, Langley (2020)

  • William enjoyed the Easter course and it was a welcome distraction and bit of routine in the holidays. I only overheard the odd bit but Will seemed happy and engaged so thank you.

    Year 5 parent, Great Missenden (2020)

  • We are pleased to learn of Joshua's continued progress in his eleven plus studies. We know that he has enjoyed the new teaching format and being challenged. Please pass on our thanks to Sinead.  We know that it has been a difficult time in terms of having to change your delivery model at short notice but we appreciate you doing this.

    Year 5 parent, Slough (2020)

  • Our daughter studied with Marie Redmond from November last year and passed her 11+ exam this September. Due to Coronavirus we went for online tuitions, which was very convenient and just as good as face to face lessons. My daughter's teacher Anne was very professional, encouraging and helpful. We have had numerous books and exam materials posted to us by the staff, as well as small rewards and cards with encouraging words. During the summer we signed up for the intensive course and the mock exam, which was taught in Amersham. The whole experience was very positive. My daughter's confidence was boosted hugely and she felt very sure when she took the exam, which was the best mental state we could have wished for. She now enjoys her last year at primary school with reasonable ease because she has massively improved in maths. We can't thank M. E. T. enough for their excellent teaching, help and support. My son will be signing up in a few years time. Hopefully remote lessons will still be available as it's the best way in my opinion.

    Year 6 parent, Aylesbury (2021)

  • Overall, her handling of the 10-11 books has improved substantially over the past two weeks so we are pleased with that. It has also highlighted that we need to work on vocabulary!

    Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2020)

  • Thank you for the results. We wanted you to know that Zak is enjoying his online sessions with Anne.

    Year 5 parent, Slough (2020)

FAQs

How will my child access their lessons?

Lessons are taught via Zoom. Your child will need a suitably sized device in order to view our virtual whiteboard. We will send you a link to access your child’s lessons.

Will my child be able to speak to the teacher?

Yes. The lessons are interactive, so the teacher will be able to speak to the students and vice versa.

Will there be any breaks during the lessons?

There is a five-minute break during each lesson.

Can parents participate during the lesson?

No – this would be very disruptive for both the students and the teacher. The lessons are purely for the students and the teacher, as with classroom-based lessons.

What You Can Expect for Your Child on Our Online 11+ Tuition Courses

We develop pupils’ knowledge so they’re equipped to answer a broad range of challenging verbal, mathematical and non-verbal reasoning questions.

Our Online 11+ Tuition Courses Are Limited in Size

Assessment

Your child is assessed twice during each team – at half term and at the end of term. Based on the outcome of their initial assessment, we will create a tuition plan that sets their individual targets for each area they are preparing for (e.g. verbal, non-verbal and numerical reasoning). All lessons throughout the course are then designed to develop these areas. We continually monitor your child’s progress; this means that we can check they’ve achieved their individual targets and revise their tuition plan to ensure that it suits their needs and challenges. You are welcome to get in touch with us at any time during your child’s tuition, to gain feedback on their development.

SuccessTrack® by Marie Redmond is our unique data-led service that allows parents to:

  • See their child’s overall score and how that compares to our recommended pass mark for each exam they are planning to sit.
  • View anonymously how their child’s scores compare (for each topic area and at a total level) to the average of all children in their cohort.

Homework

11+ homework at Marie Redmond TuitionTo help reinforce skills taught during the online 11 Plus tuition course, we’ll provide homework at the end of each lesson – with reviews of each topic in the following session. This gives pupils the opportunity to ask any questions on areas they may have struggled with. As reading comprehension and vocabulary are such important parts of the 11 Plus exams, we recommend that parents encourage their children to read as wide a range of fiction and non-fiction books as possible.

Students attend one creative writing lesson per week on Zoom, which lasts for 45 minutes. During every lesson they participate in a fun writing skills warm-up activity which might focus on grammar or a literary device, they might read and analyse a writing example or use a story prompt, and then work on creating their own text.

Every week there is a focus which can include story settings, characters, openings, events / problems and resolutions.Marie Redmond's Superbrain® Creative Writing Notebook Students practise writing in a variety of formats such as stories, plays, newspaper articles and letters. They are taught to use a variety of literary techniques and we show them how to draft their work, as well as reviewing and editing.

Homework is set every week. Students build upon the tasks in their lesson to create their own text. The texts are then reviewed at the start of the next lesson.
