When you choose private instruction with us, you’re not just securing the expertise of a highly qualified tutor to enhance your child’s test results; you’re also laying a strong foundation for their future success.
Our tutors deliver personalized, individualized, and focused lessons in various areas, including:
11+ Preparation: We provide specialized tutoring to help students excel in the 11+ exams.
SATs Preparation: Our tutors offer targeted preparation to ensure students are well-prepared for their SATs.

Whether you require test preparation services for standardized exams, school-specific assessments, or higher education qualifications, we’re here to support your academic journey.
Standardised tests are comprehensive, time-consuming, competitive, and call for hours of focused study across verbal, maths, analytical and writing skills. Your child’s results will be a determining factor in which educational institutions they can attend, as well as their career and professional options post education. It is no wonder that these exams require rigorous test preparation.
Students who receive private test prep tutoring tend to show higher results than they would with self-study alone. With one-to-one sessions, our tutors can:
Create a tailored and personalised study schedule based on a student’s aptitude
Provide more in-depth instruction where needed
Give frequent and high-quality feedback
Regularly monitor progress
Put together comprehensive study material and resources
This is the difference a private tutor makes. With at-home courses or group classes, students just do not get the positive feedback and encouragement they need to strive toward success.
What are the common standardised tests and entrance exams?
School is Easy tutors provide personalised, individualised, and focused lessons in:
11+ Test Preparation: The 11+ is an entrance examination for secondary school. It is used to identify academically enriched students, by both state-funded grammar schools and several private schools. The exam is taken towards the end of Year 5 or beginning of Year 6 of primary school. This requires tutoring for about 9-12 months prior to the tests because of its competitive nature. English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning are the areas covered.
SAT Test Preparation: SAT (or Standard Assessment Test) are national tests. In primary school, it is taken at the end of Year 2 (Key Stage 1) and at the end of Year 6 (Key Stage 2), in English Reading, Maths, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. Separate SATs are also taken in Writing and Science. In secondary school, SATs are taken at the end of Year 9 (Key Stage 3), in English Reading, Writing, Maths, Science and Shakespeare.
GCSE Test Preparation: GCSE or General Certificate of Secondary Education examinations are taken at the end of compulsory school education in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Studies for these examinations usually take place over 2-3 years, with examinations taken at the end of Year 11. Maths, English Language, English Literature, Welsh (if you live in Wales) and Sciences like Biology, Physics and Chemistry are the core subjects covered in GCSE. You also must do foundation subjects like Physical Education, Computing and Citizenship. Optional GCSE subjects vary from school to school.
A & AS Level Test Preparation: AS (Advanced Subsidiary) and A (Advanced) level qualifications are usually taken in Years 12 and 13, after completing GCSEs. AS levels involve 180 guided learning hours while A-levels involve 360 guided learning hours because of their more advanced nature. Typical A-level subjects include History, Music, Chemistry, English Literature, English Language, Maths, Law, Philosophy and Psychology. Again, options vary from College to College.
