Private 11 plus tutors in Brentwood, Shenfield and surrounding areasThe 11 Plus maths and non-verbal reasoning course covers KS2 maths curriculum to an advanced level and introduces all the non-verbal reasoning topics needed to succeed.

The course is for year 4 or 5 students preparing for Essex grammar school exams.

We focus on the entire KS2 maths syllabus making sure there are no gaps in your child’s learning.

For non-verbal reasoning, we focus on every known topic that has featured in the CSSE and CEM 11 plus exams over the past years.

Non-verbal reasoning isn’t taught at school and may feel like a maze to some children who have never come across it before. We teach students to use their maths skills to solve visual problems and spot similarities in patterns, shapes and codes.

What do we combine maths with non-verbal reasoning for 11 plus students?

Non-verbal reasoning is basically solving problems without using words. Your child needs good maths knowledge to solve non-verbal reasoning questions so it makes sense to combine both.

Non-verbal reasoning involves questions that are based around pictures or diagrams and your child’s skills in maths topics like symmetry, direction or rotation will help your child to tackle these types of questions.

11 plus maths and non-verbal reasoning topics

Math topics include numbers and place value, addition and subtraction, fractions, decimals, measurement, data handling, shapes and space, problem-solving, percentages, units and measures, equations and algebra, function machines and ratio and proportion.
