Hiring a tutor for your child to learn the wildflowers and trees in your neighbourhood

I am an MSc student studying at Reading University looking for volunteers to take a short survey. Please find link below. The purpose of my project is in part to see if there is any demand from parents to hire personal tutors for their children to learn how to identify their local wild plants as an extra-curricula activity. Learning the names of your local plants and wildflowers enable children to connect to place and home. Any help would be really appreciated.

Hiya, the link doesn't work.

(Tip, if SurveyMonkey's giving you gip, try using ServeyGizmo, you can get pretty much the full business account fro free if you have an academic email address to sign up with. It's much, much better than Survey Monkey.)

As an ecologist I'd be fascinated to know what your results are!

Great idea. However the survey did not work for me. Said it was closed.

I also think it's a great idea smile

its a good idea- survery said it was closed - I would probably most likely to do it as a holiday activity as opposed to a regular thing

We just buy books for things like this. Flowers and trees stay still long enough for you to look them up in a book. Birds are a problem. They don't bloody come near, and they don't stay still. grin

I wouldn't.Tutoring is for imparting a skill, not knowledge which you could easily find out for yourself
