    my dad went on a tutor website where you can find the contact details of tutors for free. so far 2 have contacted us back, 1 phoned and said he couldn't and the other emailed.

    the one who emailed said he can tutor me and he is a teacher at one of the schools in a neighbouring town. but i was just wondering whether its safe to contact people from a website like that they don't do referencing, background checks etc (sites like firsttutors do), they just provide details.

    he left his phone number for my dad to call him and i googled his name and it seems there does seem to be someone with his name who lives in that town (according to a website, dont know whether its true).

    also do teachers have crb checks?

    :erm: I wouldn't entrust my child with someone who hasn't been background checked or got any reliable references.
