I'm a fairly new participant here, but have been reading for a while.
Can anyone recommend a tutor (by PM) for my DC, primarily leading up to 11+, and preferably towards the West of the city? I say "leading" because although targeting of the right topics in prep for the test is a big part of the tuition no doubt, I think it can be revision/ development and discovery of the child in its own right, and therefore can be a worthwhile pursuit in itself.
I am also considering an online tuition scheme, but I expect that face-to-face will suit.
I'd be interested to hear what schemes you may have tried too.
Thanks.We try to keep the forum as safe as possible - we don't allow tutors to be openly recommended, because it attracts posts with fake recommendations ('dodgy' advertising solely designed to solicit business on the internet).
It is also not unknown for unscrupulous competitors to 'plant' posts seeking to denigrate the opposition!
Genuine recommendations from forum members by PM only (private message) are permitted - but be aware of the possibility that someone who appears to be a 'helpful parent' offering advice may not be all they seem! There could be an ulterior motive.
Always treat recommendations from unknown persons with great caution.
However, we have many long standing members (check carefully the date of joining and number of posts) who make a very valuable contribution to the forum. If you receive a private recommendation from one of them, it could be worth considering.
Please let us know if you think anyone is abusing the system by soliciting for business or 'spamming'.
It's easy to report a possible problem - just click on the red exclamation mark that appears with every post and PM:
