Kumon is a great resource to begin with. Have you tried using supplemental websites on your own so far? It takes time to find a suitable tutor so in the meantime I would utilize some worksheets you can find online. A few websites I use the most are IXL, Beestar and Khan Academy. My favorite so far is Beestar (it is based out of US) but they have an abundance of worksheets for both reading and math.

Hi Jodi, thank for the reply. Will ask the school thanks for the idea... Have checked into kimono but do not like there set up...
My son has special needs so need to find the right tutor to help him. He had a great tutor but she got offered a full time position at a primary school and could not scedule in a time that suited my son and her. :-(

It really depends on what you are wanting tutoring for. Check with your child's school - they usually have contacts, and some teachers do tutoring after hours, so they may be able to help you out.

I know Kumon is another place a number of people go to get tutoring, but communicate with your child's teachers about it. I haven't personally ever checked it out, but as a teacher, I have seen people who have sent their kids to Kumon tutoring and it hasn't aligned with their school curriculum, so make sure you have the communication between them and the teachers. There is likely to be a Kumon nearby somewhere.
