Tutors, working as individuals (not as members of a tutorial college), can provide one-to-one teaching. Most often, this is to help children overcome learning difficulties, to help with a particular subject (eg languages or maths), or to prepare for an examination (including entrance exams to secondary schools). Make sure you select one that is in touch with the exams for which your child is being prepared. And beware of any possible conflict between the approach taken by the tutor and the child’s school.
