[quote]......I spoke to a tutor today who was of the opinion that it was 'very risky' to attempt to 'DIY' in preparation for the Tiffin exam (too steep a learning curve for parents apparently!).
What a whole load of rubbish.....comments, like this from tutors, make me so MAD. I am sure you know that I am a tutor from Bucks, but I would never say YOU MUST EMPLOY A TUTOR......we do have a place in society, there are some parents who just do not want to DIY and thats fine. Parents are perfectly capable of DIY as long as they use the correct publications, start early enough and keep the momentum going......rant over.
I think RC has given some sound advice, as a norm Bond do not go with NFER VR, but as RC states they can be good as an introduction, making the whole affair more quizzy. As soon as you get into the swing of coaching....ditch them [ for VR]
Good Luck Jess...you CAN do it.......even though the tutor thinks otherwise......can feel the blood boiling again!
Ps....my post in the Bucks section....year 5...still stands for thr VR part of your test.
PS 2.....someone needs to teach me how to use quotes so they appear in those little white boxes!
