New research published by Sutton Trust revealed that two out of five secondary school students in London have received help from private tutors. Across the country, the number of students in England and Wales that use tutoring services has grown from 18% to 27% compared to 2005. While the demand for tutoring services continues to grow, we would like to remind parents to make sure that the tutor has a teaching qualification or substantial tutoring experience in a specialist subject.
