What do i do
Hi

Please tell me what to do, this lady (tuitor) made me an offer that she wants to sleep with me.I go to her for private maths lessons.
I did not want to go to her for maths tuition, but my parents forced me to go as the matric pre-lims and final exams are very close.

I told my parents thati'll go to another tuitor but they refuse to send me there becuse my friend goes there,they say that if i go there, i won't learn.The reason why they send me to this private tuitor is as they keep telling me,you get "Individual attention"

What do i do?Do i telll my parents?Do i just keep quiet about the situation and tell this lady im not interested.What makes it worse is that she's married. She also touches me, puts her hands around me. and tells me all sorts of things.

Please tell me what do i do,im also scared to tell my parents this,they may not believe me.

Hi there,

this is a very serious incident, and you must tell your parents so that you no longer have to have contact with this tutor. Depending on your age this either sexual harrassment or in fact sexual abuse. If in that kind of situation make it clear that you are not interested. If this tutor is also a teacher at your school you need to speak to a teacher there that you trust, or the school counsellor if you have one.

In order to protect yourself refuse to go back to this tutor and tell your parents why. If they do not believe you, you can always go to the police. You can also report it to Childline who can also offer you good advice. You can contact them free on 08000 55555.

Noone has the right to touch you if you do not give your consent. Get out of the situation asap!

Post another question if you need to.

Take care
