We try to keep the forum as safe as possible - we don't allow tutors or tutoring organisations (other than school/PTA and non-commercial organisations) 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' negative 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

Please PM me if you recommend an excellent tutor from Bromley area who is willing to travel to Chislehurst. DD will sit Bexley/Newstead Woods in 2 years. Thank you.

Personally we found tutors a waste of time and money. We tried for a few sessions but they weren't effective and we did most of it ourselves (I work full time) and DD passed Kent, Bexley and Newstead. More effective for us was familiarisation and a couple of formal mock tests to identify weaknesses that we could work on. Summer holidays before test was two ten minute tests plus 10 mins of an area we were working on each day, for four or five days each week. Of course every DC and family are different but our impression was the tutors didn't heve the same drive as we did on wanting to help DD do her best.

If you have time and patience and you like teaching you could DIY. But it is far safer to go for a tutor who has gone through the journey a number of times. Not only do they know what to teach- but also assess what level you child should be achieving.
