Whether you’re a parent looking for an alternative to face-to-face tuition, or a teacher interesting in tutoring online, our report is full of insight. You can download it here for free:

Based on a survey of almost 400 independent tutors, the report covers multiple aspects such as affordability, demand, technology, benefits and challenges.

11+ Conference on 1st April 2015

March 12th, 2015, 1 Comment

The National Tutoring Conference is hosting a conference on the 11plus on 1st April this year.

The various speakers are addressing different aspects of the 11 plus, including whether the examination is too narrow-based, and the topical issue of whether some kind of ‘tutor-proofing’ for the exam is possible.

Tutor-proofing was an issue raised by Andrew Baines of the successful 11plus website BOFA11plus.com when I interviewed him at the end of last year. You can read the interview here.

    I, and many other tutors I know, missed this conference due to other commitments and as it sold out. I heard there was another in April. Would anyone know the details of this?

    Tom, we don’t have any information on an April conference. It would be best to contact Tutorcruncher or BYT about this.
