hmm tutor as in home tutor or a tuition centre teacher?
If she already has a home tutor, then why not ask the tutor to recommend one? After all, only the tutor knows her standard and which book will best suits her.

Casco - Mathematics Tutor 2A and 2B by Lee Ann- Goh. It is a good assessment book for students who are weak in Maths and need drills and practice. You may want to check it out.

Longman published quite a number of Sec 2 Maths assessment books. Not too sure which one u refer to. A few Longman book classify the questions according to its difficulties, Level 1, 2, 3. In Casco, Mathematics tutor, the questions in each chapter are grouped to its types; Questions that uses the same Mathematical approach are grouped together. So it is book to consider if the child needs drill and practice. Personally, I also prefer the assessment book to have the working space in it.

The above is just my opionion.
