No-one cares about your child’s transfer test as much as you do
The content of the transfer test isn’t rocket science so we strongly recommend that it is a parent or a grandparent who takes control of the test preparation. This child-centered approach means that you can grab opportunities for talking through questions or doing a quick test when your child is ready to learn – after football and before Scooby-Doo – or whenever. You know when is best for your child.
That way, you can fit transfer preparation in to your busy family life.
Is ploughing through a bunch of one hour past papers, months before you’re ready, really the best way?
Transfer Ready’s unique system of stepped practice papers work alongside your child’s primary school to reinforce what is being taught in class, and help your child to recognise the style and structure of transfer test questions. Each Transfer Ready stepped test is the equivalent of one hours tutoring.
But Maths was never my thing – I’m not sure how to best teach my child!
Don’t worry – we understand and whenever there is a tricky topic, we have hand hints in the answers to help you work through the question with your child. And maybe even try to let your child teach you – by doing this they will become more confident about their grasp of a topic.
But – we don’t believe that you should be teaching your child – leave that to the primary schools who do for six hours a day, five days a week. You will just be getting them ready for the transfer test. This is where many tutors waste many hours – by re-teaching material which your child already knows.
Instead, your child needs to consolidate this knowledge with practice – and exam-style targeted practice at that.
