Has anyone used apps for private school tutoring? I know there are lots out there for tutoring for 11 plus but are they the same? Thanks.

@Lara53 thanks. When do you suggest beginning tutoring please? Year 4 or 5?

In the school where I teach - non selective independent to 11, feeding a huge variety of selective Senior schools - we start teaching VR and non VR at the beginning of Year 4 and stream by ability for Comprehension. from February of Year 5. If your child is on a state school I’d start ASAP - Beginning of Yr4 if possible.
