Hey everyone. I have been offered a 14 week programme of online maths tuition for my Year 6 child at £199. It starts in January and ends in May.
It sounds good but the only thing is - I am unable to choose any of the lessons myself because the lessons are determined via a pre-test. What are thoughts on this? Is it not better if you can choose the lessons yourself?
Hello, this thread is a little old. You can find more up-to-date Mumsnetter recommendations in our round-up of the best online tutoring services (and other online learning resources). MNHQ.
How do they determine your dc's weakness? Is the pre-test done online, so silly/simple mistakes can end up in the programme finding that's your dc's weakness?
I think it's up to you to decide what you are looking for. £199 for 14 weeks seems cheaper than hiring private tutor, but does that worth it?
Also there are so many free teaching site available theses days, if you have time to supervise what your dc is doing.
