I never paid anyone for outside tuition, but you can bet your arse that I made the most of my teachers' expertise. When I had questions, I asked. I was going to get a tutor for biology because I wanted to study a different option (genetics) to my class (communication) but my teacher and the student teacher doing her prac at my school gave me one-on-one help for a part of each lesson.
So I dunno whether that counts or not, but it helped - 15th in state for bio and 99.65
tutor? private school? what the fuck are they?? man we kids from the sticks up the coast (yes, we do have electricity and running water too!) are left to fend for ourselves. and im damn proud to say that my state tutor-less public education got me 96.7... tutor shmutor.
have you never met anyone from a selective school? lol ...
majority of my school is/was tutored... funny thing is - i got high 90's without a tutor... others who should've done just as well spent thousands on tutroing and ended up with high 80's n low 90's..
tutoring isn't all its cracked up to be unless you're not doing well to start with - a lot went backwards after getting tutored... exceptio i guess is stuff like ext2 maths coz that stuff is real hard especially if you have a shit teacher
