Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately I've tried this but it seems to be a bit of a closed shop atmosphere. He is in a tiny school where lots of the families know each other ( except me!) and they tend to help out who they know. Thanks anyway!
We are not in your area and never having had the slightest desire to find a tutor even in our own I can be of no help there, I'm afraid, but I would just like to say a: how sad and b: having already had this response, I would be very wary indeed if one of them did now 'recommend' someone. Do you know anyone with a child already at any of your target schools - with whom you would not therefore be in competition
- whom you could approach for advice?
