    Cambridge BA 2022UCL MSc 2024Offer from CambridgeOffer from ImperialOffer from DurhamOffer from UCLA*A*A*A* at A-Level11 A*s at GCSE

    Hi, I’m Fran! I am a postgraduate student at UCL, studying for MSc Science Technology and Society, which I hope to finish in 2024. In 2022, I graduated with a BA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, where I specialised in Materials Science in my final year. I’m super passionate about science, and love science communication and policy-making. In my spare time, I enjoy rock-climbing, reading, board games, and music.
    I have been tutoring privately for around 4 years now, and I love it! I enjoy spreading my passion for science and love discussing new and interesting topics and issues in science with my students. I think it’s really important to engage children and young people with science, to encourage the next generation of medics, mathematicians, scientists, and engineers.

    Hi there, I’m Caleb! I recently graduated with a First Class in Biology from the University of Oxford, and I have five years of experience in both tutoring and mentoring in various subjects. I’ve tutored both independently and for international agencies, so I’ve worked with students from a wide variety of nationalities, age groups, and educational backgrounds.

    As a results-driven tutor, I work with my students to identify their specific goals and create a personalised teaching plan to achieve them. I ensure that my lessons are both interactive and engaging for the student by tailoring my teaching style to best suit their specific needs. In all lessons, I place a strong focus on encouraging lateral thinking and guiding students to improve their analytical capabilities through problem-based learning.

    My approach produces excellent results, with most of my students improving by at least one grade boundary (GCSE, A-Level), and I’ve helped many to achieve university offers for Medicine and Oxbridge universities. Alongside tutoring, I provide mentoring for competitive university applications, including support with writing personal statements and studying for entrance tests.

          Frequently Asked Questions

          If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for in the FAQs, feel free to contact us!

          What are the Common Entrance Exams?

          Common Entrance is a series of exams often taken by students in Year 6 (age 11) or Year 8 (age 13) in order to obtain admission to selective grammar or independent schools.

          How do I register my child for the Common Entrance?

          For pupils applying to grammar schools, the 11-plus exam is normally free. All private schools require you to fill out a registration form and may charge you a non-refundable registration fee (between £100 and £300). Once you accept the position, they may want a deposit, which will be repaid at the end of your child's first term.

          Registration can begin up to 18 months before your child is scheduled to take the examinations, so it's important to apply early to ensure that registration spots are available.

          How often should you tutor a child?

          We recommend scheduling at least two tutoring sessions per week, with each session lasting between one to two hours, to ensure your child receives the support they need. Our experienced common entrance exams tutors can function as teachers and can work with your child to teach their curriculum and reinforce learning.

          💻Where do the sessions take place?

          You will be able to access all the material, including the live lessons, from the comfort of your own home as the lessons are held virtually.

          💰Do I have to pay for all of the lessons upfront?

          We strive to make our courses as accessible as possible. During your FREE one-off consultation with our experienced common entrance exam tutors, you can discuss individual payment plans with our team.
