Hello, I'm new here. Can anyone tell me how to go about finding a good tutor with knowledge of HBS, Channing and SHHS? And do you think, coming from a state primary, that a year's tutoring is going to do the job? Thank you!



Genuine recommendations by PM only (private message) are acceptable - but beware of the possibility that someone who appears to be offering a recommendation may have a vested interest! 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 'report button' - the red exclamation mark.)

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!

Channing and SHHS are both in the North London Girls Consortium. Channing is in Group 2 with City and NLCS and others and SHHS is in Group 1 with St Albans and others. This means that neither of these two schools run their own exams so you do not need to find a tutor who knows about these two schools but just about any school in Group 1 and Group 2. HBS have changed their exams this year and have abandoned NVR. You need a tutor who is sound in preparing girls in comprehension skills and creative writing and has good knowledge of KS2 Maths. You can do your part by making sure you have your dd's current SATS levels in English and Maths which will give clues to areas she might need extra focus in. Both my dd's sat the Group 1 and Group 2 exams and HBS. We did exactly the same preparation for all three exams. I would go in the Herts section where you will find lots of posts from forum members who got places at HBS and then the indy section where you will find lots of posts from forum members who got places at Group 1 and 2 schools.

Thank you very much DG, that's really helpful. I'm quite relieved to hear that HBS have dropped NVR as my dd is very wordy. I'll go and dip into the Herts and independent sections.

If you have any names of tutors that you feel able to PM me, that would be fantastic.
