We do not have lessons during half-terms; however we will leave up the previous 2 weeks work to allow for extra revision and/or for any students who need to catch up for any reason.

We usually put up 1 to 2 weeks lessons over the Easter and Christmas holidays and the equivalent of 3 to 4 weeks lessons over the summer holiday (available from the last week of July throughout August until early September). This enables students to do the lessons when it suits and will allow you the freedom to fit the work in with any holiday plans you might have.

The best time to start tutoring for the 11 plus is in Year 4. This will allow your child sufficient time to cover all subject areas to the required level without the stress and panic which comes with starting later.

Our success rate of over 92% is usually achieved by those children who have attended tuition from Year 4.

We do not ask your child to sit an assessment test before being enrolled on a course with us. An assessment test at this stage would only test your child’s knowledge learned so far. It would not test your child’s true ability level or their suitability to tackle the 11+.

Once your child starts tuition with us, we find that they very quickly move to a level beyond their current NC level at school. As they progress and learn more with us, your child’s true ability will then be monitored and reflected in their assessments via our monthly mock exam course.

All course material, resources and practice exam papers are provided as part of our weekly teaching content and monthly mock exams.

There are a couple of extra resources which we strongly recommend you purchase for extra practice and revision, as needed. Both these resources are suitable for your child to use not only towards their 11+ preparation, but also right through their secondary studies up to and including GCSE ‘O’ levels.

Mrs Jones Education has an excellent reputation with over 92% success rate for those children who start in Year 4 and more than 84% success rate overall.

Our online tuition model has proved to be a very effective and efficient system to meet the high academic levels and demands of the 11 plus examinations. Indeed, our excellent success rate of over 92% has been maintained (and even excelled!) when we compare our online students against those in our physical groups pre-Covid.

Tutoring System FAQs

All our online courses are planned and taught by Mrs jones and include everything you need. The lesson videos and tutorials are fully guided and structured so your child knows exactly what they are doing each week.

Pre-recorded lesson videos and tutorials are uploaded to the portal each week. The lesson videos are separated into sections by subject or topic so children can easily digest them in smaller chunks.

Our course is highly structured enabling students to learn more effectively and efficiently. Work is set immediately following each lesson topic taught, so that students are able to check and reinforce their understanding of the topic directly following the lesson.

Guidance, starting points and step by step explanations are provided to help your child tackle the more difficult questions within the tutorials and timed tests. Children can build their knowledge whilst improving their timing and technique.

All our course tutorials are provided in separate subject videos, enabling the children to learn in small chunks over the course of each week instead of having to digest all the subjects in a single, lengthy lesson in class or via zoom.

This allows your child to work at their own learning pace and ability level – particularly helpful if your child is starting their 11+ preparation late in Year 4 or Year 5 and needs to catch up. Our system ensures your child is able to build a solid foundation prior to the Year 5 course or even before their actual 11+ exams in Year 6.

The course is highly structured enabling students to learn more effectively and efficiently. Work is set immediately following each lesson topic taught, so that students are able to check and reinforce their understanding of the topic directly following the lesson.

One of the advantages of recorded lessons is that they are shorter than physical lessons as there are no students to interact and interrupt your child’s concentration and focus. This means that learning can be done in a faster time.

Being able to watch pre-recorded videos on demand also facilitates revision as pre-recorded videos are more likely to be re-watched if the student does not fully understand, or can be watched again later for revision.

The key features of our tuition courses are our structured tutorials and resources, which when used alongside our timed and assessed monthly mock exam course, provide invaluable data to help identify and target each pupils’ weak areas.

Our courses are highly structured and fully guided with topic-based lesson tutorials and weekly timed tests for homework. This method of learning leads to greater efficiency in learning and enables students to build their knowledge whilst improving their timing and technique.

Research has shown zoom lessons not to be suitable or effective for primary school children. It was found that a system like ours, of shorter, pre-recorded video lessons proved best for optimal learning and to meet the 11+ demands and the high standard of intense academic learning, in a more efficient time-frame.

11+ preparation requires commitment and hard work, regardless of whether it is online or face-to-face. We have found that children who are keen learners can make better progress with our online system than in face-to-face lessons, as it is less time consuming in terms of lesson length, there are no distractions from other students and no travelling time.

Our courses are designed for children who are academically able and enjoy being challenged. Students who are focused and diligent in their studies can make excellent progress on our online course and be better placed to compete with their peers due to the time-advantage they have.

Our system also allows students who are behind in their studies for any reason to work and learn at their own pace, allowing them to fill in gaps in their understanding and then accelerating their learning. They can go back into a lesson themselves to revise a particular topic or re-watch a video with parental guidance and assistance if needed.

Our flagship online education platform provides the perfect home-based 11+ preparation program with our fully structured and guided weekly lessons, tutorials, worksheets and regular mock exam paper practice. A winning formula that works!

We hope these findings will provide positive assurance of the advantages and effectiveness of our unique online tuition system.

Thank you for all of your help, advice and guidance in the months leading up to Toby’s 11+ Entrance exams in Dec/Jan. We’re very happy to inform you that Toby received offers from all the schools he sat for. These are some of the leading schools around. Incredibly, he also received 2 academic scholarship offers! Believe me, we were in shock – excited, overwhelmed and proud all at the same time, but what a wonderful position to be in?!

No doubt some of this might not have been without the 2 years of tuition from you. He thoroughly enjoyed his weekly lessons, which he thought were fun, but always stimulating. I personally believe your years of experience and knowledge, coupled with your calm disposition greatly helped inspire confidence in the children. We have been singing your praises to all and sundry and I have no hesitation in recommending Mrs. Jones 11+ Education to those who may need/benefit from your services.

We look forward to replicating the same success (or even more!) with my younger son currently in his second year with Gwenda.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line regarding Omar’s results, which are all in. At your advice (thank you), we added Reed’s to his list of schools, and it is a great school. We decided in the end also to submit applications to Tiffin, Kingston Grammar and Hampton, even though you suggested that they might be a struggle for him to get in to. With Reed’s and Ibstock as a backup, we felt there was little to lose in trying for the stronger schools as well.

I’m delighted to say that he was offered a place by every school he applied to. Indeed, Reed’s offered him a scholarship, which we would have taken had he not had offers from Hampton and Tiffin. We all preferred Hampton as a school, especially in terms of the extra-curricular variety on offer as well as its academic strength. However, with our current financial situation, we decided on Tiffin as it is an excellent school, albeit not as rounded in our view as Hampton. I wanted to thank you for your tuition, which I’m sure made a difference in terms of his results, and to wish you all the best going forward.

We wanted a thorough and informed preparation for our daughter particularly for the VR & NVR for Tiffin Girls and an idea of the speed she would need to work at to get through the papers. We also wanted her to have the best chance of securing a place at one of two local independent girls’ schools. We liked the idea of her working in a small group rather than feeling pressured in a one-to-one tutoring situation, as we did not want her to be “over-tutored”, just wanted to make sure we had “filled in the gaps” as we saw them.

Gwenda made an initial assessment of her abilities, gave us honest feedback, and was always calm, reassuring and positive. Our daughter really enjoyed her weekly lessons over the four terms, and was encouraged and challenged. We were able to keep her in a steady routine with the homework, following Gwenda’s advice as to increasing amounts and difficulty in the lead up to the Tiffin exam. We are delighted that at the date of writing, she has been offered a part scholarship at one of the independents, and has an academic scholarship interview at the other, with an offer of a place already secured.

Thank you so much for teaching Arushi this year in your class. As we are planning to move back to Seattle (U.S.A) by end of this year that’s the reason we didn’t enroll her for the next year. Throughout last 6 months she learned a lot from your class not only math, English, verbal and non-verbal but also gain confidence, love, passion to go to class every day to learn new things. That makes us happy to see our child is building her self-esteem and concentration through your learning process. Sorry for the late note. We already told our friend about your class and most of them are going to your class next year.
Teaching is not an easy job and from bottom of our heart we appreciate your hard work. Thank you again for recommending all those books to us to encourage our daughter, to gain her confidence. They are very helpful.
