Hampstead & Frognal Tutors news
Hampstead & Frognal Scholarships have launched. They are offering parents who cannot afford private tuition the opportunity to apply for 10 lessons to support their child's maths and English. The scholarships are offered to children in year 5 and below in the borough of Camden who would benefit signifcantly from the one-to-one coaching and who wish to prepare for selective, grammar and independent school places in year 7. Contact your child's headteacher to express your interest in this unique opportunity.
Each year Hampstead & Frognal Tutors makes a donation to worthy causes and charities throughout the world. This April one of our very own tutors Oliver, is running the Virgin London Marathon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. In between teaching students for the 11+, GCSEs and A-levels Oliver is training for the 26 mile run around the capital. Oliver says that he "ran the Paris Half-Marathon in 2009, and I have been looking for new and exciting ways to challenge myself, as I believe that life is much more fun and fulfilling when you’re pushing yourself to do something that you never thought possible." A great inspiration for his students.
Oliver chose to raise money for Macmillan because his mother is one of the two million people living with or beyond cancer in the UK. Her experience changed her life to the extent that she now spends an incredible amount of time and effort working for Macmillan so that they can provide support for the millions of others like her. As a result, Oliver's family have developed a rather special bond with the charity and so do everything they can to help out.

Tuition with a Hampstead & Frognal tutor would ensure children know their times tables by the age of 9 at the latest. In some cases our students know their tables by as young as 6 or 7. Hampstead & Frognal tutors would certainly endorse this raising of standards in primary schools since the entrance exams and 11+ common entrance tests require more knowledge than merely knowing the times tables.
