I’d like to enter my DS for QEB 11+ exam in Sep 2014. I’m not keen on using agencies or eleven-plus factories. There’s no shortage of freelance tutors, but so far, the ones I’ve found are a bit on the average side. I’m not worried about rates for someone who fits the following bill:
1. Has a PGCE or educational degree
2. Has a degree (with a 2.1) in a subject which calls for good Maths and English. After a bad experience with another DC, I’m avoid tutors with “soft” degrees, or those with no more than a 2.2 in the better-rated degrees.
3. It would also be a plus if they had strong A levels and went to a Grammar school themselves.
Having wasted a lot of time in the past, I’m going after good paper qualifications first, then I will interview any candidates for the other skills and attributes.
Please PM me if anyone comes to mind in S. Herts/N.

It's easy to report a possible problem: just click on the red exclamation mark that appears with every post and PM:
Always treat recommendations from unknown persons with caution. However, there are many long standing members (check the date of joining and number of posts) who make a valuable contribution to the forum. If you receive a recommendation from one of them, it could be worth considering seriously (while still exercising a degree of caution).
If you receive a recommendation from anyone else, please exercise extreme caution!
