11-Plus Exams are changing.

While the structure of exams may be changing, my basic approach remains the same - to help students approach verbal and non-verbal reasoning tasks with increased confidence because of the firm grounding they've acquired in grammar, logic and rhetoric.

This April, I'll be attending the 11-Plus Conference The National Tutoring Conference to keep up to date on the changes.

Details below:
