You can tutor your child at home in several ways to help them prepare for one of the Grammar Schools in the UK. Below are some tips on how you can go about doing this:

 1. Use practice papers: Doing practice papers is an excellent way for your child to get used to the questions they will find in the exam. You can find practice papers online or at your local bookstore.

 2. Create a study schedule: Help your child create a study schedule and make sure they stick to it. This will ensure that they are studying regularly and not leaving everything to the last minute.

 3. Go over exam technique: Make sure your child knows how to approach the different types of questions in the exam. This includes knowing when to take a guess and when to skip a question.

4. Help them to relax: Your child must stay calm and relaxed during the exam. Help them do this by doing some relaxation exercises or taking them for a walk before the exam.
