I was wondering what you meant by "tutoring". Does it mean
that the child wants to learn something the teachers in the school
cannot teach? Then I see no problem with it. On the other hand,
why would parents send their kids to a school where something
is NOT taught?

If it is the parents' wish to have their child learn some subject he
*does not* want to learn, however, then I agree; but in that case
too, I don't see why they would send their child to Fairhaven.
