All About Me
Delivering Exceptional Service to Students
I'm Hema and the founder of Stanmore Tutor.
By profession I am a qualified accountant with years of experience in this field; training staff, preparing financial reports, meeting interesting clients from different walks of life as well as tutoring in accountancy.
My 11+ journey began years back with my children as I was struggling to get more information about the exams and find tutors who were motivated and made learning fun. As studies have always been an important aspect of my life, I felt that there was clearly a gap and felt compelled to transfer my tutoring skills to 11+ exam preparation and this was the start of my journey.
This has been one of the best decisions I've made as it is very rewarding to impart knowledge to the little minds and make a difference.
I am an avid believer of holistic therapies and practise meditation on a daily basis especially, after having experienced a lot of anxiety and stress keeping up with deadlines.
I was drawn towards mindfulness training after having researched the neuroscientific evidence on its benefits in helping to alleviate stress and anxiety felt by children these days and went on to qualify as a mindfulness teacher for primary schools.
I am grateful to be surrounded with amazing people in my life who have supported me in all aspects and it has been a fruitful 11+ journey.
Last year I felt it was time to implement changes and give my business a separate identity and Stanmore Tutor was born.
I believe my personal style of tutoring in an interesting and practical manner equips children approach the 11+ exams with ease and confidence. I love what I do! Mindful tutoring!
At Stanmore Tutor we hold parent workshops, walk through mocks as well as group and 1-2-1 tutoring. Please call to discuss your tutoring requirements on 07470 035563.

Some 11+ Preparation Top Tips for success
1. As with any examinations, it's always important to follow certain discipline with study.
2. Early preparation leaves time for tackling difficulties and building a strong foundation.
3. Use different 11+ materials to practice from e.g. Bond, CGP, Schofield & Simms, Letts and past papers from both grammar and independent schools.
4. Read lot of different books to enhance vocabulary. Learn at least 10 new words a week.
5. Master the times tables at least up to the 12 times table.
6. Practice, practice, practice! The importance of allocating some quality time cannot be ignored.
7. CHECK your answers. Careless mistakes means lost marks.
8. Do not hesitate to ask for help if something is not clear.
