Hi,

My son recently took 4 entrance exams but only passed one. I didn't get him a tutor for the exams, but did work with him myself-because of his results,I now regret this!. I now find myself worrying that he might struggle when he goes to secondary/grammar school as the exam he passed he only scraped through. Does anybody have any good tutors they can recommend in the Urmston/Stretford area just to sure up his English/Maths and give him confidence?

Thanks for any help/advice

Josepea

I agree wholeheartedly with Yoyo. If a child gets through with minimal preparation then they are highly likely to thrive.

I'm not a tutor, but a Y7 and Y9 parent and I couldn't agree more with yoyo and moved. If your child has done it on ability then they will thrive!

The biggest help you can provide for your child at secondary school is showing an interest in their studies.

That would mean regularly checking their homework diaries or school books. Quizzing them on what they are learning, and mosty importantly having an open relationship such that if your child is struggling they know you will listen, be non judgemental and help them find the solution.

Thank you for that. My son is not very open and I do have to almost nag him to get any info. out of him. I suspect it will get more difficult as he gets older
