Now is a good time to start contacting prospective tutors as their availability soon fills up. Many tutors like myself have several pupils who continue lessons for a couple of years – to cover their GCSE or A level courses, for example. So some slots are already taken before the beginning of the school year. This means that matching up diaries can be tricky and it’s first come, first served! English and Maths tutors tend to be particularly in demand and many have waiting lists later in the year.
So don’t risk a last minute panic – start phoning/emailing around now!
