Hello. My son has just started year 5 and would like to sit the tests next year for entry to the Sutton grammars. We did have a tutor, but we're not happy with her approach so need to find someone new…which is easier said than done! Can anyone please PM me with recommendations, or give any tips about searching for someone? I have the usual problem that everyone I know is being secretive about who they use - after all, the boys are all competing against each other. I'm hoping that someone whose son is in Year 6 and is reaching the end of the race will be willing to pass on tutor details - thanks in advance.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:
