Shhh – don’t talk about your tutor!

Do you use a private tutor for your children? Have you been tutored yourself? Do you talk to other parents about it or do you keep it private?

This month Harry Wallop discussed tutoring  – and how tutors now outnumber those who work in the NHS, solicitors or teachers. His view was that tutoring is almost underground, something rarely discussed and a bit of a secret.

In our experience that’s not the case. We have many parents who share the details of their tutor with other parents. We know lots of parents who chat about their child’s difficulties with other parents, often leaning on them for support and advice. In Harry’s article he focuses on the race to get children into ‘good’ or selective schools and it’s this competitive element that seems to lead to more secrecy – parents don’t want other parents to know their kids are getting an extra boost!

But for some parents the opposite is true and they want everyone to know they can afford a private tutor and boast about how well their child is doing.

There are no rules when it comes to having a tutor – you don’t have to tell anyone or you can tell the world. But what you might find is that the key to finding a really good tutor is word of mouth recommendation.
