Judith is currently Owl Tutors' lead 7 and 8 plus tutor. Judith has taken on the role of managing resource creation for our 7 and 8 plus tutors and writes blog posts and other material for the Owl Tutors website. Judith has also successfully completed the Owl Tutors' School Entrance training program. She understands the requirements for independent school's entrance exams and has been trained in how to prepare students for these exams.
Judith graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 2012 with a first class degree in Primary Education. She has vast experience of planning within the National curriculum and has had her teaching rated as “Outstanding” class teacher. With three years of academic study into how to teach Primary-aged children and a number of year's teaching experience in both the state and private sectors (she has taught in a prestigious London Pre-Prep), Judith makes the ideal 7 and 11 Plus tutor. She has also taken phonics courses specifically geared towards preparing students for the 7 plus. Her passion for education is apparent as she provides handmade resources and games that are tailored to her individual learners. She believes that for young children to succeed, they should be motivated and engaged in their learning, which is why she adopts an active approach to tutoring in which the children’s interests are tied into their academic work.
Judith has previously worked in Italy teaching English, and feels confident teaching those who have English as an additional language. Her experience includes planning for and assessing children aged 3 – 12 years old. She is now employed by Owl Tutors as a full time 7 and 11 Plus Tutor. She has an enviable record in supporting students with school entrance exams, having recently helped students prepare for Westminster Under, Colet Court, Latymer Prep, Westminster Cathedral, Haberdasher's, Highgate, Wetherby, South Hampstead, City of London School for Girls, North London Collegiate, University College School, Caldicott and Badminton.
Judith is a committed individual who aims to allow her pupils to reach their fullest academic potential by carefully creating a programme of work alongside the child and the parents, focusing on specific and achievable goals each month. Her enthusiastic teaching style has proven to motivate children and by learning through a combination of written work, oral work, games and activities, she is able to increase children’s confidence and engagement in learning as well as their academic progress.
Judith qualified to teach Primary education in 2012, and holds a B.Ed (Hons) Primary Education from University of Strathclyde.

"Judith was a fantastic tutor for our 8 year old son. At short notice we found out he was to sit some entrance exams for a new school. We wanted to find a tutor who could help him with some exam technique and check he understood the key elements expected for his age. Judith did just that and our son was successful in securing a place at the school. Judith has a lovely manner and was perfect for our son. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her."

"All went well with Judith. Thank you! I would certainly be happy to use her again. Our daughter actually enjoyed the sessions and did not complain at all about doing them – which was a great sign Judith was doing well and was a good choice."

"Judith is an incredible tutor. She really engaged with our 7 year old, who wasn't particularly keen to begin with. She worked on his handwriting, creative writing and comprehension skills and he improved immeasurably. He really looked forward to the sessions and was very sad when she moved abroad."

Sitting the 7+ and 8+ exam can be a daunting prospect, so it is important that children become familiar with working under strict time constraints before the exam. There is significant competition for entry into schools at both 7+ and 8+. For example, for every one place at Westminster Under or Colet Court, 8 or more boys sit the entrance exam.
