I began “BarrySmithTuition” in 1998 on retirement from 27 years school teaching in Kent, Kirklees and Bradford.


Since then I have worked with countless families and have now seen over 100 of my pupils achieve success in the 11 plus entrance exam to secure admission  to the Halifax Grammar Schools and also Heckmondwike Grammar School.


Time and time again families where an elder child has gained a place have come back to me to tutor one or more younger siblings.


I have also been recruited by a local fostering agency - TLC Brighouse - to tutor client families.


Usually I travel to the home of the pupil to do the work  but people can come to my home if preferred.


One-to-one is my preferred mode of operation but I am happy to work with 2 or 3 pupils simultaneously.


I do initial assessment sessions before beginning 11+ tuition and then give regular feedback on the pupils progress.


  • I also offer catch up programmes in Maths and Literacy for pupils 8-13.

  • I have full CRB disclosure.
