Introduction

Welcome to the Birmingham & Solihull Literacy Club.

Here, education and enjoyment go hand in hand. 

The Literacy Club focuses on ensuring that children are ready to take their 11-plus examinations with a rich vocabulary, genuine comprehension skills, and confidence in key aspects of literacy and verbal reasoning. Tuition is undertaken as a joint enterprise with involved parents - children's primary educators. We offer two separate streams of tuition in Year 5; one for children aiming for Independent School admission, and one for children aiming for Grammar School admission.

I do not tutor for Mathematics or Non-Verbal Reasoning. I offer specialist Literacy 11 Plus tuition.

Philosophy

I believe that effective tuition is built on having a motivational relationship with each child. It gives me great pride to see children improve exponentially when they come to one of my clubs!

While we are aiming for success in the 11-plus, it is important to understand that the Birmingham examinations are designed so that only children with a genuinely strong level of literacy ability can achieve the standard required. It is not an exam that can be fooled with any 'quick-fix' tuition! 

Through a holistic and wide approach, I ensure children have a genuinely strong ability to understand and work with the English language at a good level.
