About

MAIN TUTOR

About 11 Plus TutorLynnette Dunster is a University graduate with a degree in Bachelor Science, Bachelor of Architecture and is TESOL trained. She has experience in tutoring children and adults and she has had DBS clearance. As a parent who has been through the 11 plus examination with two children (a boy and a girl), she appreciates the need to try and make the preparation for the exam as pleasant and purposeful a process as possible, for both the child and the parent.

AIM

Lynnette believes that every lesson should be enjoyable and to a certain extent memorable. She aims to put students at ease and build on their natural ability. During the tuition, she engages with each student and build a rapport of trust that will improve their motivation. It is important for the student to gain confidence not only in their own ability but as an individual. She tailors each lesson to suit for the individual student’s needs and works enthusiastically with each student to enable him/her to achieve their full potential. Getting students ‘onside’ is a very important factor ensuring the success of tutoring. The strategies and exam techniques gained through tutoring are skills that will ensure success throughout their academic life.

SETTING

The lessons are conducted in an environment that is warm, calm, energised and conducive to student learning. There are no distractions, and individualised attention ensures that the student remains engaged. The lessons are set in an informal room with a large white board. All learning materials are provided following each lesson.

COMMUNICATION

Lynnette believes in open communication between the student’s parents and guardians and the tutor in order to monitor the student’s ability and progress. It is important that all homework set by the tutor is done by the student ready for the next lesson. In order for the tutoring to be effective, parents and guardians need to ‘work’ alongside the tutor to support the student providing a conducive environment at home to do the homework. A regular ‘report’ will be given to the student’s parents either in the form of a chat on the phone or by e-mail. She is honest about all discussions and try to keep all discussions discreet with parents and guardians. This is as much to manage expectations as to alert parents and guardians to rate of progress that is being achieved.
