Entrance Exam Consultations

Elite Tutors Sussex

Entering your child for independent or grammar school needs careful consideration and planning.

Our consultations offer key information and a strategic process on how you can best support and prepare your child for entrance exams at 7+ or 11+.

Understanding the process

The competitive nature of entrance exams can feel highly pressurised, and you will want to know exactly what is required and how to help your child to get the best possible outcome. Our consultations will walk you through the process at 7+ and 11+ and how best to prepare your child on your own or with the help of a private entrance exams tutor.

Thank goodness for Elite Tutors! We have been using them since September 2019, for a range of subjects, and the service has been brilliant: Karen has matched us with tutors that suit my kids’ needs and temperaments, and has helped me coordinate a complicated set of timetables, with flawless professionalism. Highly recommend.

Karen has been very supportive in helping us home educate our 12 year old daughter, taking time to understand what we were looking for and selecting an appropriate tutor. The tutor Allison is excellent – organised, punctual, flexible – and is highly responsive to my daughter’s strengths and weaknesses. Highly recommended.
