He's had some tuition over the last few weeks at a local Kip McGrath centre. But, I'm not sure of the standard of tuition he's receiving? As he s just told me that they just plonk him in front of the pc and leave him to his own devices.
We found that this was the case with my DS as well and felt that he wasn't receiving the necessary tuition needed. I also felt it wasn't ideal him being in the same room with a wide range of ages (some very young) and different levels of tuition (DS was one of only two/three children being tutored for 11+). We did speak with the senior tutor about our concerns and he did make sure, after that, that DS wasn't just put in front of a computer all the time and that he actually went through work with DS instead. We did lose a bit of confidence with this though and went through some Bond books of our own and some past papers from the CSSE. The literacy, in particular, was not that beneficial for us. DS had no practise in the tuition sessions for the type of literacy that he faced on the exam day (a Dickens novel) and didn't do very well in this part of the exam. Fortunately though VR and maths was better and he is now at CRGS and really happy there. I would say to keep an eye on how the tutuoring is going and, if you have any worries, let them know now. Good luck.
