The Telegraph's 'A Very Private Tutor' Series

The Telegraph's 'A Very Private Tutor' Series

The experiences and opinions of an anonymous private tutor in the UK

Over recent months, The Telegraph have published a series of articles written by an anonymous and reluctant private tutor under the heading ‘A Very Private Tutor’.  The series which began in November 2012 highlights the experiences of the anonymous narrator, good and bad, of working as a tutor in the UK today.  Although the writer’s experiences may differ from the majority of private tutors, the series does cover some interesting subjects such as the current education system and dealing with the parents of tutees.  The latest article in the series, explains what parents should and shouldn’t expect from private tutors.

Judging by the comments from Telegraph readers, not everyone agrees with the writer’s opinions.  It would be interesting to hear what our readers make of the articles and the experiences that the writer shares.
