Our daughter also struggles with maths and has really benefitted from some extra tuition. Just an hour on a Saturday has really made a difference.
Totally agree with this. One hour a week has changed the attitude of our middle son. His tutor is a well-known local pillar of the community, quite posh, which he found a bit intimidating to start with, but now he even dresses-up smartly when going to see her, and always does his homework. The difference in his attitude is very noticeable, and pleasantly surprising to be honest!
We can't afford it either really, but at £25 a week its worth the sacrifice.
I guess you'd think I'm sacrificing my daughters education by not spending £25 a week on her but we struggle to pay for groceries each week, Dom has a money piece of software and we have to stick religiously to it just to make sure we can pay our rent.
