Private Tutoring in the news

It’s been a busy month in the world of private tutoring with coverage across the media on whether tutoring is a good or a bad thing.

A Guardian investigation said that modest income and ethnic minority families are behind the boom in tutoring.

At 121 Home Tutors our students come from a wide variety of economic and ethnic backgrounds with very differing needs – some want more intensive coaching to the pass the 11+, while some just need an hour a week to help with a tricky topic or subject area.

Radio 4 discussed tutoring on You and Yours and The Guardian ran a letter from a university lecturer about what she perceived as the downsides of tutoring.  There has also been plenty of coverage of Ben Thomas’s (headmaster of Thomas’s prep school in Battersea) tirade against private tutoring. His main concern was that childhood is being swallowed up by the emphasis on tutoring to get into certain schools.
