Just an idea to throw out there... Would anyone be interested in exchanging tuition services? Music lessons in exchange for private tuition? I am a qualified teacher (not in teaching at the moment). Due to a reduction in our household income I can't afford the lessons I would ideally like for my children. However, I could offer my services as a tutor for primary school age children for most subjects in exchange for music lessons for one or more of my children. If anyone in the Stoke on Trent / North Staffordshire area is interested, please let me know.
