Whether your child is a high-flier who needs extra stimulation and some support to get to a grammar school, a child who is struggling with schoolwork and a big class, or a teenager who needs a boost for GCSEs, many parents find a tutor can really enhance their child’s education.
I’ve made no secret of the fact that my younger son is highly intelligent. We live in an area with grammar schools and I believe he needs to go to one of those schools, but what if the paper throws him? What if he’s not used to that format of questioning? I thought long and hard about it, but the obvious solution was a tutor. He has been going to his tutor for a year now and really enjoys the extra stimulation. As she moves into year 4 next year, my daughter will start with the tutor too.
So how do you know that tutoring is right for your child? And how do you choose the RIGHT tutor? If you’re investing extra in their education, you want them to make good progress – and you want them to be happy. The right tutor should boost your child’s confidence and make them want to learn more.
Tutorfair is an online service, available in London and parts of the South East, which lets you search for tutors online. Unlike other agencies, parents contact and book tutors directly. You can choose a tutor who is an expert in a particular subject and see their qualifications – and even a video of them. The videos mean children can get involved in selecting their own tutor and choosing one they think they will get along with. There are no fees to pay to Tutorfair – just to the tutor themselves, who will work with your child at home.
But tutoring is just for the rich kids, right? What about all those disadvantaged children who are getting left behind at school – or who have the brains to get to grammar school, but no cash for extra support? Well, Tutorfair helps them too. For every child who pays for tuition, Tutorfair provides tuition for someone who can’t afford it.
