The proof is always in the pudding.
If you look through her second essay, you will notice that she took on the feedback and made the necessary changes. This was all without any additional help from her parents. She watched the videos, followed the instructions, applied the points in the feedback, and it made a significant impact on her writing.
The Geek School Tutoring 11 Plus Creative Writing Course is tried and tested – and it delivers results time and time again! Having helped numerous children successfully secure a place at some of the UK’s most sought-after grammar and independent schools with traditional tuition, the system has now been rolled out to reach children across the UK and internationally to help them attain the same level of success... from the comfort of their own homes.
Ten years ago, online creative writing courses were not available. The 11 Plus exams and their content was not as accessible and parents were at the mercy of tutors when preparing their children for the 11 Plus exams. Thank God for the internet - it brought you here.
