my wife had this made available to her through her work. They found the tutor, set up a meeting time, and brought them to the house to work with my son. so you might want to check out and see if your work offers this.
you can use dubizzle and search for tutors, this is one I found with a quick search
Thanks for the leads. I've seen and emailed a few adverts but had no replies yet. I'll try the one from Dubizzle.
Recommendations from anyone experienced with a tutor certainly help; trusting part of my son's education to a 'stranger' makes me slightly nervous as we're using a 'distance' programme at the moment because entering the UAE education system is a nightmare (transfer documents that we just can't get!!!)
