State school + private tutor?

by Sara

We are looking to create case studies regarding families who have decided to move their children from the private school sector to the state school sector and have decided to use the service of a private tutor to boost their child's academic performance in general or to help with certain subjects.

There maybe many different reasons for choosing this option. Perhaps you prefer the more mixed social atmosphere of a state school? Did you feel the local state school was just as good? Or have you been hit by the recession and decided you need to find a more affordable way to educate your family?

We believe there are more and more families selecting the state school plus private tutor route, so we would be interested to hear your reasons for taking this decision. If you have a secret desire to be famous and would also like to be featured in the newspapers, please let us know as we often receive enquiries from journalists.
