This years’ 11+ masterclass events! Bookings OPEN 😬 Engenius Tuition


To answer a few queries coming in, I’m currently fully booked, and can no longer accept any more tutees with a September 2022 start date. My list for a September 2023 start date is now open, so please send me a message if you wish to enrol your child. Thank you!


Updated terms and conditions, with effect from 07/01/22 onwards: Failure to pay an invoice within the week-long timeframe, and after one further reminder, will result in an additional 50% being added to the invoice. Failure to pay this within a further two days will result in the tuition space being released. Additionally, four lesson cancellations within a six-month period - with no particular reason - will result in the tuition space being released.


As of 17:00 today, I will be on annual leave until 02/01/22. Emails and messages already received will be responded to by 17:00 today, and any others sent will be replied to in January. To answer a few common enquiries: I am fully booked until Sept 2022, and yes you can add your child’s name to my waiting list - just message me with their full name, the year group they’re in at school currently, and any specific days/times you’d like their tuition for. I’ll look at my September availability upon my return, and get back to you then. I wish all my clients a great Christmas, and I’ll see you in the New Year 🎄


Yummy, christmassy treats, ready and waiting for my superstar tutees 💜 Thank you, Elora Baking Co. 😘


Never too early to start teaching language devices! My three-year-old and I have been working on them this week, and he now confidently knows personification 😍


I opened my emails tonight to find so many tuition requests! After working through them, I now have children on my waiting list for as far in the future as Christmas 2025!

Back in 2017, when I decided to leave my pretty well-paid job in a school, I was taking a huge gamble. I knew I needed to make a success of this business, but I never dreamt I’d make it what it is today.

After four years of working hard to establish Engenius Tuition, in order to get it recognised in Buckingham and the surrounding areas, I now have over 30 children on my books, and many, many more on my waiting list… all from word of mouth 🙏🏼

I absolutely love what I do - there’s no better feeling than giving a child the confidence to believe they can achieve anything they set their mind to ⭐️

Thank you to everyone who recommends me to others on Facebook, shares my details in the school playground, and writes me a review. Not only does it help my business more than you’ll ever know, but it puts a huge smile on my face, too ☺️


Someone’s joined me in my tuition room, to get a few jobs done 🌸


71% success rate for this year’s 11+ cohort (so far) 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼


Someone is eagerly awaiting 11+ results! 🥰


Good luck to everyone receiving their 11+ results tomorrow! 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼


Last few remaining slots: Sunday’s 10:00-11:00, Sunday’s 12:00-13:00, and Thursday’s 15:30-16:30. Sessions are weekly, and can either be online, face-to-face, or a mix of both 💚


Outside tuition is the best ☀️ I was perched here for this evening’s tuition (ignore the weeds in the background 😬)


I’m taking a short break, and will respond to messages from Friday 3rd Sept onwards. Thank you ☺️


WOW! That was a busy morning 😁 Break time now 👍🏼


I’m hoping this morning’s tutees have a longer attention span than my little boy has! 😁


A little insight into today’s 11+ Masterclass - English language devices 💜


… and just like that, the first 11+ Masterclass of this year is complete 👏🏻 A huge well done to the children who attended - you all worked your socks off, and I can’t wait to hear how you do in your exams. Thank you, parents, for sending your children, and a huge thank you to my ‘team’ who make these events possible - my sister, for always being there to mark the exams and to keep the mocks in order; Steph, for coming along, getting stuck in, and assisting Lucy; and my childcare angels - my mum and mother-in-law - for having not only one but two grandkids to keep in check this time round 😁. You’re all amazing 🌟 Round two next week 💜💚


Day two of the 11+ Masterclass! A quick recap on yesterday’s VR and English learning, and then onto NVR and Maths 💚 Let’s do this 👍🏼


I have one 11+ space left, for 2023 grammar school entry. Message me if you’d like it! 😁


Huge congratulations to my Y10 tutee, James… he sat his English Literature GCSE a year early, and has just been awarded a grade 6 👏🏻

I’m so proud of you, James. You’ve worked so hard in tuition over the last four years, and you thoroughly deserve this result!

I can’t wait to hear how everyone else has done 😁


Due to self-isolation because of COVID, I have two spaces in next week’s 11+ Masterclass. It runs from 16-18 August (Mon-Weds), from 10:00 until 13:00, at Thornborough Village Hall (MK18 2DF). The cost is £275 per tutee, payable in advance, with this price inclusive of the mock exam. Monday is VR and English, Tuesday is NVR and Maths, and Wednesday is the mock exam. Message ASAP if you or someone you know would like a place. The Masterclass running from 23-25 August remains fully booked. Thanks!


… and getting organised for my next 11+ cohort starting 📚 All of my 11+ tutees follow a set schedule that I’ve put together for them, to ensure there’s enough time for all exam skills and techniques to be taught and understood. This rucksack equips them with everything they need to bring to their lessons with me, whilst also supporting their independent work at home 💜


While big brother sleeps, Saffy and Mama are starting to make folders for the 11+ Masterclass 🥰


Another day working on the 11+ Masterclass… thankfully my littlest sidekick is sleepy, and my biggest sidekick is with his grandparents 😁


Last few 11+ Masterclass spaces available! Taking place 16-18 August, or 23-25 August, 10:00-13:00, at Thornborough Village Hall. We will cover VR and English on day one, NVR/Spatial and Maths on day two, and a full mock exam on day three. Perfect for current Y4 or Y5 children, with or without previous 11+ knowledge. Please message for more info!


As life goes back to some kind of ‘normal’, I’ve had lots of clients asking about whether I’ll be tutoring online or face-to-face, upon my return. Well, the choice is yours. Please rest assured that your child’s tuition can be online or face-to-face (or a mix of the two), with complete flexibility on this. It makes absolutely no difference to me or my teaching - or to your child’s learning - whether your child is physically in the same room as me or not, and prices are no different. With this in mind, if one week you can’t get to me on time and need the lesson to be online, it’s no issue - just let me know as soon as you know. Please note that your child will need access to FaceTime/Whatsapp video, an iPad (or similar), and a stylus, in order for their lesson to be able to take place online. Many thanks!
