ENTRANCE EXAMS: 4+/7+/10+/11+/12+/13+/16+
Strive Tutors understands both the importance and challenge of entrance exams. Our team of tutors has a comprehensive knowledge of schools' demands and paper requirements to work with your children to ensure that their confidence, exam technique and subject knowledge are exam ready. We help children in the UK and abroad prepare for schools' computerised pre-tests, all the way through to the interview stage, to ensure they secure places at the schools of their choice.
We have a detailed understanding of London's most popular junior and senior schools and are well placed to offer advice to parents and children who are uncertain about the next steps in their education. We can meet you for a consultation to evaluate the best school to fit your child's needs and we can also advise on the best route to securing a place when the time is right.
If and when students wish to study with their peers who are studying the same course as them, we are able to offer group workshop lessons. These lessons are held in our classroom facility in North London and will often be more cost effective. In these lessons, tutors will create a small classroom environment to both support their studies at school and address key curricular concerns. In turn, this will boost confidence and grades.
EXAM PREPRATION: GCSE, A LEVEL, IB, PRE U
Strive is at the forefront of educational changes and we are able to help your child achieve the grades they need and want. We have full knowledge of all exam boards, including the new specifications, as well as specialist subject knowledge to ensure that our teaching is carefully targeted and totally beneficial. We foster real passion for subjects taught and can stretch and challenge students beyond the demands of a syllabus to enrich and inspire at all levels.
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS SUPPORT
Strive Tutors is proud to say that our tutors are special needs trained and able to to support students with a range of Special Educational Needs (SEN). We teach using a careful selection of strategies and pedagogy to ensure that all our students make excellent progress. We build confidence and resilience to ensure that all students succeed, regardless of their starting points.
At Strive Tutors we have seen that in an age of technology and travel, online lessons are increasingly popular. Using accessible, simple software we are able to teach students anywhere in the world, provided they have access to a computer screen and internet connection. These lessons operate in a very similar way to traditional face to face lessons - times and lesson themes will be decided in advance and students will be able to share and develop work with tutors in real time to yield real and positive results.
UK AND US UNIVERSITY APPLICATIONS
We can assist your child with filling out their UCAS forms, writing their personal statements and help with interview technique and practice. We also have extensive experience advising students seeking places at American universities (including Ivy League schools) and can assist with the writing of the Common Application and supplementary essays. We have a great track record of securing students places at top schools including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Columbia, Yale and Stanford.
OXBRIDGE AND OTHER INTERVIEW PREP
Our tutors can assist with interview technique and mock interview practice, giving detailed and targeted feedback to students to ensure that they are able to perfect their interview style. We can also create realistic pre tests and interview tests to give students an authentic interview experience before the "real thing"- in our experience, preparation is key!
We have the range of academic subjects from Mathematics, English Language and Literature, Sciences, Humanities, Languages and the Arts covered by our team of expert teachers. Our stellar team also features some outstanding primary school teachers who can give subject specific support to children between the ages of 4-11 years old. We also have tutors for specialised lessons in Music, Ballet, Gym and Art/Photography from experts in their fields.
