I think you are from the same area as me. Tutors tend to be £20-25 a hour. However down south and in areas where there is fierce competition it can be £30/50/100 pounds a hour and they are fully booked up at those prices. There was an article in the mail about it a few months ago, there will prob be a link somewhere on the site. It was quite unbelievable.
Did you get any recommendations by the way?
Yes think we are, wow so a little more than I thought ( that'll be no tea for a month, hair unwashed, children with holes in their shoes and no wine!!
) All for the sake of a grammar education....No recomendations ( though again possibly being naive, if you had the best tutor and knew were up against others would you be prone to keep that information to yourself...) I am all sharing but I can understand maybe why. Pah!! Just getting ( perhaps too much) bogged down with this tutoring lark, certainly couldn't afford to chop and change different ones as I know some do if find some just aren't right for their child. So many children in my DD's school have been tutored from yrs 2/3/4 sometimes not just for Grammar but just to keep up there, and I have never wanted to go down this route...And am so very proud of how my DD has this real passion for learning and is working pretty much at a yr 6 level at yr 5 in many of her subjects. Though those VR/NVR tests have really
me as I just don't think I would be a good DIY er, we have done a little together and she is like 'DUR mum don't you get it!!' and actually I don't. I just feel I am jumping on the bandwagon of everyone else and bringing in the good olde tutor....I know DD would cope well which ever school, and wonder why I am getting so hot and bothered about this grammar thing, almost tearful infact, cricky she wouldn't even take the exam till next year. Is it normal to get very emotional about this stuff....Already am thinking ah she is bright * sod it* can't be mithered with all this stress, she can go to the local ( and good ) comp.
