Email local schools they have a notice board for the LA so can advertise for you.

I'm a TA have worked in Y6 you don't need a qualified teacher for Y6 maths GCSE maybe -

"you don't need a qualified teacher for Y6 maths"

I agree with cody. I can help my ds with most of yr6 level maths, without teaching qualifications.( I was bad at maths in school, but self taught it since, with Khan.)

Thankyou for your replies I really need someone experienced we did have a tutor but my DD hasn't progressed atall & is still struggling .. I was thinking about a graduate or teacher wanting to earn a bit of money but I didn't realise how hard it is to find a tutor ..

She finds new concepts difficult to grasp her maths teacher felt that the tutor was confusing her with the different methods that are used at school ...I wasted so much money on going over the same topics I wouldn't have minded so much if my dd grasped it in the end she needs someone to boost her confidence & get her motivated b

If she find grasping new concept hard, you should try Khan academy.
It has really good tutorial video that you can watch again and again until you get it, and it is explained in very easy way.
Obviously it's better if you can find good tutor, but until then, you should let her try, since it's free and even maths teacher recommend it. It teaches from 1+1 to really high level maths, you can pick and choose what sort of level you want to learn.

Event tutors usually receive recommendations and referrals through word of mouth. Do you know anyone who is now about to start Y7 and whose child did well with the use of a tutor?

Ignore word 'event'. Bizarre

Make sure he/she doesn't teach your DD the Napier's Bones (aka Chinese) method for multiplication. Half the time it doesn't work because it is very easy to make mistakes and it's a pain in secondary to teach column multiplication.
