How do you find a tutor? Can you contact a school?

I want to find a tutor/teacher for ds in a subject they don't do at his school.

There is one 'tutor agency' in the locality, but they do not offer this subject

There is a top public school down the road, and I wondered if it would be possible to enquire if there was a teacher (master?!) there who does tutoring as a sideline.

Does anyone have any idea how I might approach the school? I have no idea whether this sort of thing is 'not done' and if I need to employ a more roundabout route.

Any advice welcome!

Contact the public school and ask for head of department in area the subject lies. Alternatively put an advrt in local paper or see if there is one there already.

Alternatively put an advert on gumtree. Or if there's a university near you, advertise there, as you may well get students who are knowledgable on the subject, and would be willing to tutor.

Ta, all.

And thanks for the info, bloss. Now I know any contact I make with a school isn't going to be regarded with complete disdain!
