I work as a tutor at GCSE and A-level, in maths and the sciences. The problem is what to do to pay the bills in the summer holidays.
I have thought about tutoring the ‘Kent Test’ (which is the 11+ here) through the summer. I have been given differing opinions on this: some say it is easy and I should go for it, others say that it is so unlike tutoring the 15-18 age group that a very different style is needed and parent’s expectations are much higher of the tutor relative to the student given the latter are only 10 years old.
I also wonder if I could be stretching myself too thin so to speak, given the amount of work in keeping up with all the syllabuses and courses for my main subjects. Does anyone have experience of doing the 11+ or has relevant advice to offer?
