    Private Tutor for 9months - 2 years old

    Any recommendation on private tutor? Due to swine flu, my 9 months old daughter has not been going to playgroup for a while. she is getting bored at home. Wonder if there is any private tutor i could try. My niece (2 yrs old) will join the session too if a good private tutor is available.

    i tutored privately for many, many years... however, now i run a playgroup centre.

    i'm just curious what you want the tutor to "teach" your 9 month old?

    the whole idea of going to a playgroup with a baby is the social interaction. having a private tutor kind of defeats the purpose. if you take your baby out, talk to your baby, sing to your baby, play with your baby you can do all of what a private tutor can do and save yourself $400-600/hour (this is the going rate for a native english speaking private tutor for 2 children for one hour).

    Yes, I tutored privately in NYC and in London mostly for age 5 and older, but like carang, am interested in what your expectations are for your 9 month year old. At that age, it's all about working on motor skills and like carang said - social interaction.

    Me too. i have been in teaching kids for 20 years and now having my own, i am so curious why hire a tutor for 9 months old? I guess most of the time we mom notices our babies getting bore is mainly we are so bore staying at home. Ya, call for a playdate or two every week to play with friends' babies for an hour or 2, this is enough for a 9 months old.

    I am a first time mother, working and have a 5 months old baby girl. Can anyone suggest what I or the helper can do with her at home? We read her stories, watch baby TV with her, dance, sing and talk. Any new ideas? Thanks

    other than taking her out, you pretty much have it covered.

    My suggestion is to take the baby shopping.
    This is Hong Kong - after all!
