What is the best way to get a good tutor, and what will qualify a person to be called a good tutor?

Not sure whether a tutor is really worth it. The last one l had kept missing DS mistakes and rushing.

Any advice of how to idenitfy a good tutor?

Thanks

word of mouth is probably the best way.

meet the tutor and see how the 'gel' with your child. Will they provide homework, what do they do in their lessons etc.

I always go and see prospective pupils and their parents first so that I can explain what the Kent test entails and how I teach.Also ask a bit about school likes and dislikes, favourite and least liked subjects etc. I like to see if I get on with the pupil and vice versa.

Ditto Yoyo. The relationship is very important. I expect parents to mark the work I set. Then I can help with problems that arise. During a lesson it always seems a waste of my time and the parents' money if I mark papers.
