The Learning Base provides an outstanding private tutoring service with a proven track record in helping students to achieve their full potential. We specialise in 11+ / Grammar School Entrance Tests and GCSE English, Maths and Science.

11+ Grammar School Entrance Test Preparation

I am a fully qualified teacher with many years of teaching experience. I consistently deliver an engaging learning experience for students determined to gain a place at one the prestigious grammar schools in the West Midlands.

I cover all required content for the 11+ CEM syllabus including Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Teaching is meticulous and students are rigorously prepared for the test. Feedback and advice is also provided to parents on a regular basis to help accelerate progress.

GCSE English, Maths and Science

Our tutors are fully qualified teachers with years of experience working in mainstream schools. We have specialist knowledge in delivering the AQA, Edexcel, iGCSE and OCR specifications. Students are prepared to sit the new 9-1 GCSE examinations. Our approach is to teach the topics students find challenging and to supplement this with past paper examination questions. Students are prepared to confidently recall all subject content and trained to answer exam questions with accuracy and efficiency.

We take a unique student centred approach to tutoring as we believe every individual has a unique learning style. Our students have enjoyed great success over the years and parents are happy with the value our tutoring methods have added to the educational outcomes their children.

Excellent tuition centre!
5
My nephew attended the learning base for over 6 months and this experience is exactly what he needed to help him reach his potential. He received his grades last week and while the family are extremely proud of his achievements, if it wasn't for Johirul and his dedicated team of teachers I know that my nephew would not achieved the grades he got.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Johirul and his team. You guys are doing amazing work. The dedication and support you gave to my nephew was excellent and now he is in position to take the next step into higher education and pursue his career in medicine. Thank you so much!

Excellent tuition centre

My son attended this centre after not making the required progress from a centre he was attending elsewhere. He wasn't on track to pass his 11+ exam but in the 4 months he was with this tutor he made good progress and managed to pass his test. I believe he would have scored even higher marks had he started with this tutor. Teaching is good and tailored to pupil needs, we were given feedback after every lesson and my son enjoyed his lessons.

11+ Success!

My daughter attended the 11+ preparation course with The Learning Base and as a result she managed to pass and exceed the entry requirements for both King Edwards VI and Queen Marys Grammar Schools.

She seemed to enjoy every lesson due to her eagerness to attend and was receptive with the daily homework set.

Feedback was given after lessons which provided me with an overview of progress whether it was good or bad.

With the multitude of tuition centres available it can be a daunting prospect in choosing the right one. I came across The Learning Base by chance however I would certainly not hesitate in recommending The Learning Base to anyone thinking of supporting their children. I've already started my son on it!

I would like to say that my son has passed his King Edward tests and the Queen Mary tests well above the qualifying score which means that he has the best chance of a place at any of the grammar schools we choose. Based on that, I would like to say a Big Thank You to Johirul. You worked so hard to motivate my son by giving him all the pep talks he needed as well the right tools to practice with. As always giving lots of feedback to parents. You always had confidence in my son that he will do well when at times I didn’t, and now he has done exceptionally well. We are so proud of him. I would definitely recommend parents to send their child to the Learning Base if they want their child to pass. Johirul really cares about what he does and has a personal passion for the kids that he teaches to do really well and I think this and the support he provides to the parents as we are a large part of it too, all this adds to the ingredients of being an excellent tutor. Thank you so much

Thank you for posting such a great review!!! Although I never doubted your son's ability to pass the 11 Plus test, the scores your son got in both tests were way higher than I expected!! Out of all the boys I have taught to date your son scored the highest. So a massive well done to him, I am very proud and happy for him. Thank you for your persistence and perseverance, it was a very challenging period but it was all worth it in the end. Please feel free to contact The Learning Base for anything education related in the future. We are always here to help.

Highly recommend the Learning Base
5
The Learning Base is an amazing tution. In my experience it's probably one the best I've come across. The teacher is fantastic. He tailors the lesson to the child's needs and gives homework which supports the child. I've seen massive improvement in my child's ability and now she is flying in her school. I would highly recommend The Learning Base whether it's for GCSE or 11+ ...

Hopefully, the tuition she received in her primary years set strong foundations for her to build on in secondary education and beyond. Please contact The Learning Base in the future should your children need help with anything education related. Many thanks
