Ilana was pivotal in unlocking the potential of our daughter at a critical juncture of the 7+ entrance exams and successfully enabled her admission into top London schools such as Highgate and South Hampstead.


Ilana is truly an exceptional specialist.  She has prepared our daughter for 11+ for several top tier schools. We got offers for every school. Her dedication, kindness, unparalleled wealth of experience and expertise, and winning personality have made the process feel easy.  We cannot recommend her enough!


Interview Preparation

Preparing for second stage interview days is not about memorising answers to questions.
It is about showing your best side to the school through your responses.

In my interview preparation session, I help your child:

✔️ understand what the purpose of the interview
✔️ learn the “rule of three” to make sure they answer with just the right amount of information
✔️become more relaxed by understanding what will happen on the day


Are you unsure if you need an assessment for your child?
✔️ I want to understand whether a school is suitable my child.
✔️ I want to know what areas need the most development and how to achieve this.
✔️ I want to know how my child compares to their peers who will also be taking the entrance exams.

If these statements describe how you are feeling, an assessment is right for you.

We were quickly won over by Ilana’s deep knowledge of what would be required to pass the 7+ exam and her ability to quickly identify the areas we needed to work on.

We found the assessment report incisive, well-observed and full of practical suggestions. And most importantly, our daughter had fun.
