Meet the tutors

Founder and head tutor of 11 Plus Tutoring Academy - Gloucestershire and Buckinghamshire

Philip attended Dr Challoner's Grammar School, Amersham. He experienced the techniques used to succeed, and the hard work which is needed to pass this challenging exam. 

Philip then went on to study at one of the UK's leading universities, the London School of Economics. He is a qualified Chartered Accountant and he was a Financial Controller of a large, leading UK Law firm based in London. 

Since then, Philip has been creating and writing a new online resource to support his tuition, as well as researching and collating all information regarding the new 11 plus exam. He is a highly experienced tutor and specialises in all of the core areas of the 11 plus exam: english and verbal reasoning, mathematics, and the non verbal reasoning.

He has designed and produced a programme of online tests which assist children with the new CEM exam. These practice tests encapsulate the wide scope, timings and techniques to support children who will be taking this extremely challenging exam. The children he teaches, very much enjoy using the online resources.

Most recently, Philip has written 4 books for Letts (Harper Collins) including Durham 11 + CEM Style Exam Papers and a Booster Book. These are available for purchase in WHSmiths, Waterstones and Amazon. These are very popular books and children find them very useful in the final stages of preparation for the exam. Parents feel confident and assured that their children are being taught by a published author, who has a fantastic record of helping hundreds of children achieve their potential in gaining a place at the most highly regarded schools in the country.
