I'm asking for a friend.

She lives in Walsall and her 11yr old is looking for some private tuition. How do I advise her?

Apologies if this is going against the forum's rules.

Maybe you can recommend to start her on here.

I am aware of some tutors in the area but only one who I would personally recommend from my own personal experience.Unfortunately he would only take them on two years prior to the 11 plus test after doing some basic testing of the child to ensure parents are not wasting their money over two years and to ensure the child has the capacity to get to the appropriate level.

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

Thank you for your warning. I never thought of that. It is food for thought.
