Re: Meet Sophia: The future of tuition

I agree. The Uber model implies a dispensability that is at odds with the tutor-pupil relationship. Ideally tutorial agencies or introduction services function to enable a limited number of connections to be made, so that a pupil can find one tutor with whom to form an ongoing relationship.

Re: My 8 years old has been exposed to ****** by a friend - not sure what else to do

Re: In-laws voted leave. They've removed my children's freedom of movement and I can't cope with seeing them any longer.

I feel as passionately as you do about this issue, but would advise you not to create what you acknowledge would be major family discord by cutting ties with your in-laws.
