Elevate Eleven is run by Anita and Tim. Anita is a former state school teacher and head of department and, having built his career in IT consultancy and project management, Tim is now Associate Professor at a London University Business School.
Anita carefully plans the education programme for each year group, ensuring she keeps a close eye on school requirements and adapts the programme as necessary to the changes that take place each year. Anita is also our specialist when it comes to specific questions about school entrance exams and school requirement and will be happy to answer any questions or help wherever she can if you would like advice from her.
Tim is responsible for the financial and strategic side of the business and will be your first point of contact for any queries regarding invoices and payments throughout the course.
Each of our tutoring centres has a centre manager, and they will be your first point of contact during your time at Elevate Eleven. As well as tutoring a small group, they ensure that resources are distributed, everything runs to time and will keep in contact with you each week to ensure you are kept updated with what your child is learning and what their homework is. They will also let you know when reports are being sent home and when parents’ evenings are organised, as well as letting you know of any extra support available e.g. mock tests, timed paper practice, interview practice etc.
Our tutors follow a carefully planned programme each term that is written by Anita, with the support of the centre managers. The programme differs for each year group but eventually runs about 6-9 months ahead of the school curriculum to ensure they are fully prepared for the 11+ examinations when they start to come around in the Autumn of Year 6. Each tutor looks after a small tutoring group (maximum of 7 pupils in year 5) and will keep track of their progress, support their learning and report any concerns to parents. Tutors will write reports, give feedback and take part in parents’ evenings at regular intervals throughout the programme. Our tutors are all experienced with class teaching and have an Enhanced DBS. Tutors have all received safeguarding training and one tutor in each centre is our First Aid lead
