Primary & 11 +

UPwards Tuition provides coaching and teaching in English, Mathematics and 11+, and support in children’s learning across the primary school phase. We coach children for 11+ and develop their strategies in solving verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests. We provide a safe and calm environment for all our students. At the end of each session, parents can ask for feedback or make an appointment for a longer session to discuss their child’s progress.

We follow the National curriculum guidelines in literacy (handwriting, phonics, spelling, reading, grammar, comprehension and developing skills in knowing, appreciating and understanding the purpose of different genres.

Mathematics is taught according to the level of understanding of individual children. Children are taught using a variety of methods and Mathematical games and equipment. Previous SAT’s papers are used to improve understanding and confidence in tackling mathematical problems.

Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning
Children are taught and coached to develop a greater understanding and speed in tackling verbal and non-verbal reasoning. There has been research confirming that children who are given the opportunity in developing strategies in solving non-verbal reasoning problems show a marked increase in their test scores. However, it is recommended that children are introduced to non-verbal reasoning at the beginning of year 3.
