I recommend books by Nelson Thornes, one of the leading publishers who have designed their resources to meet students' needs. I would also like to add that another way of stimulating your child to do well and gain extra help in curricular subjects is by playing educational games on the internet. The site that I would recommend is...
Would recommend Yasmeen to anyone who is preparing for QTS. I have learnt so much from these QTS classes. I looked everywhere for someone to tutor me to suit the QTS skills test in numeracy I have learnt so much and feel so much more confident in mental maths and on screen maths now. The materials that are used by Yasmeen helps understand the questions so much easier. I would recommend this tuition to anyone who requires help in sitting the QTS.
- Shabnum (QTS Student )
I would highly recommend Yasmeen for 11 plus preparation. Our daughter managed to secure a place at King Edward Handsworth for Girls. She was very happy, confident and motivated during the whole 11 plus process.
Yasmeen is a very organised and focused tutor who knows exactly how the whole process works. She has flexible classes running all week.
I would recommend this tutor to anyone. Homework was always marked swell as regular feedback.
- Mr and Mrs Shabir (11 Plus Birmingham)
Mrs Ahmed is a unique tutor who can work hard with any child to ensure they are fully prepared for the 11 plus exam. My son has huge gaps in Maths, but the way Mrs Ahmed had the classes structured and organised, it enabled my son to confidently pass and gain a place at King Edward Aston.
I would recommend her to anyone !
- Mrs Razaq (11 Plus Tuition, Birmingham)
We have been sending all our 3 daughters to Yasmeen Ahmed for the past 4 years, they are all in Secondary school, one of whom is studying GCSE Maths and English. Yasmeen has supported our girls so much that they are thriving at school. Without her help and support they would not be in the top set and confident.
Highly recommend this tutor !
- Mr and Mrs Hussain (Small Heath, Birmingham)
I found Yasmeen on tutor pages after a great struggle with QTS preparation. My Maths skills were zero and I had no confidence at all.
I was taught the whole of maths from scratch and not only was I felt comfortable but Yasmeen boost my confidence and motivation. Without her support I would not have passed FIRST time. I would not have gained a place on my PGCE course if it wasn't for Yasmeen.
I also have my son who attends her 11 plus classes who feels very well prepared towards his SATs.
- Shareen Azam (QTS Student)
My daughter attended Yasmeen's classes only 6 months before the 11 plus exam. The strategy and well organised classes enabled my daughter to achieve a very high score for the 11 plus.
We had to travel from far but it was well worth it for the price she offered and the quality of service. My daughter is very happy with Yasmeen and is still attending her classes.
- Ms Blake (Solihull )
My son in year 4 and daughter in year 3 have been attending Mrs Ahmed's classes for the past 5 months. They were below average at school and struggled immensely in Literacy and Numeracy. Both of my children have now moved up 3 sub levels at school and are making rapid progress.
Mrs Ahmed has a small class size and is very organised. She is committed to her job and dedicates everything to ensure a child achieves the best of there ability.
- Ayesha Begum (Birmingham )
Before attending the tuition sessions I was quite bad at maths. I didn't have much time to pass the QTS tests and so when I met Yasmeen she carefully planned the sessions which were convenient for me. She was really nice and friendly and the way the sessions were taught made maths seem simple and easy. She was available whenever I needed her. She was absolutely dedicated to ensure I passed and I did pass first time with ease. The value for money was worth it and I would recommend Yasmeen to everyone.
- Suzanne (QTS Student )
We have never met a tutor like Yasmeen before. We had many bad experiences with previous tutors but finally managed to find Yasmeen who is so passionate and enthusiastic about her teaching which led to our daughter to pass her 11 plus with a high score to obtain a place at King Edward Camp Hill.
She clearly has a strategy that works for children to succeed. Another aspect that helps is her well organised classes and excellent communication skills.
- David and Ruth (11 plus )
After failing twice on both Literacy and Numeracy Skills Test, I felt I had no where to turn. I felt all future prospects of becoming a teacher were over. She identified all my weaknesses with literacy and maths. She worked with me intensely, on a one-to-one basis, tailoring my lessons specific to my needs and gave me the passion and drive to not give up, she gave me the self-esteem I needed.Yasmeen an exceptional tutor, her help and support has made my dream of studying Initial Teacher Training come true.
