    Hothousing is not something which most tutors provide, nor to which they would be capable.

    But you didn't complete teacher training.

    Anyone can call themselves a tutor I suppose. I have my teaching qualification and 24 years of experience teaching so I prefer to call myself a teacher doing private tuition. That way, it is clear, and people know what they're paying for.

    Exactly. Smoke and mirrors comes to mind.

    Oh dear, you've been found out. There is no requirement to be a qualified teacher to tutor, so why pretend otherwise. Failure to complete PGCE is failure to complete teacher training.

    Troll? I simply wanted to clarify whether you were a qualified teacher. I see no trolling.
