Harriet Brewis cites the Sutton Trust’s Private Tuition Polling 2018 in an article for the Evening Standard.
Bewildered parents are hiring £40-an-hour tutors to help them understand their children’s homework.
More than two thirds of parents admitted to not grasping their children’s schoolwork in a survey of 2,500 parents conducted by London tutoring agency Tutor House.
Half of the parents surveyed worried they were hindering their children’s progress by trying to help.
In July 2018, a survey published by education charity The Sutton Trust revealed that 27 per cent of secondary students in England and Wales have had home or private tuition. This figure hit 41 per cent in London.
