Can anyone recommend a good maths tutor for my dd?

I feel really glad that she has acknowledged and approached me asking if I can source a private tutor who can help her fill in some learning gaps.  She has always disliked maths and I could see back in middle primary school that she could do with some help.  She had resisted it all these while though because despite it being her weakest subject she was still getting results well above average.  So, now that she is in Yr9 and 2 terms in a row she ended up with B+, she finally realised she cannot so easily fluke her way through the learning.

I was honestly surprised even though she did quickly clarify that didn't mean she wants to do Maths Methods / Specialist Maths later on but she does want the option available if she does decide to do so.  With us battling the difficult teenage stage, I had to actually asked her if she was serious.

So, please pm if you know of someone who can help.  I've tried FaceBook, gumtree and university postings but it is really hard to know if they are any good in terms of being able to teach well and not make it seem like a chore, and her regretting asking for help!  I would love for her to find enjoyment and challenge in maths.

It'd help if you told us which state/town/city you're in :) Unless you're thinking of something online.

What part of SA are you in?  I have a friend who is very smart and did Maths at Uni. She might be interested?

Oh, I'm in Adelaide (specifically Glenunga), hence the posting in the SA forum.

Lees, that would be great.  As we are not forcing this on dd, I know she would do her best to engage in the learning.  I hope the person is also able to independently assess what and where dd is deficient.

Anyone else, please?

Apologies, I didn't even notice the forum, I'm so used to reading from the "We are discussing" links! All the best for your daughter :)
