Hi, apologies if I'm asking in the wrong place ( I assumed that you guys would be best placed to help me with this)
I am looking for any "real" recommendations for tutors to help my daughter to start preparing for the English and maths tests in May 2014.
We are based in the Tring/Berko/Aylesbury area

I think most people will tell you there is no need for a tutor for SATs. They are for the school league tables.

Ok Thanks so are you saying that the tests are completed anonymously?

I would still like to find a tutor though so if anyone can recommend a good one for English and Maths I would be very grateful?

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: Image

Sats are not anonymous, but you really do not need a tutor.

yoyo123 - you could need a tutor if you want to ensure those levels 5s to sit 12+.

Also, Secondary school targets and GCSE pass rates for the cohort are set from KS2 tests. You could argue that good KS2 results will ensure more chance of GCSE A* to C!
