Not your girl here! I am not a native speaker and my son is billingual as he both reads and writes in Greek as well. Hence English is his weak area (although he is an avid reader). Given the reasons just mentioned we started with a tutor for one and a half hour per week, and she performed miracles within 3 months!
Unless you are both a native speaker and very confident in English, do get a tutor. Although the exams have passed our son still continues with her. Now all aspects of his English are from very good to excellent, but still late in the evening he is incoherent when he talks! (but do remember, we do not speak English at home, only he does!)

Regards,

Hi Zed

Following up on your posts here and on Birmingham. Take a look at this website - it has some very nice free resources to help children create stories and structure their writing.

http://www.teachingideas.co.uk/english/contents05writingfiction.htm

It will need input from you, but you are your child's best tutor!
