You want doctor to cure your specific medical problem, you see specialist right? Find specialist la. Tutors that can teach 'everything' seem dubious. Lawyers can't do everything. Doctors can't do everything. Engineers can't do everything. How can tutors?!

this is a wonderful point. that is why i always tell my friends that look for a specialist that can do the job... i have been recently surprised that there are teachers treat education as a commercial enterprise... that is why i am cautious when i find centres that are suddenly open with more than one location.

Teaching is now a commercial enterprise, even if it is a government funded school. Everything is based on 'performance' and 'improvement'. Our schools are grossly bereft of knowledge and skill. Students hence force themselves to memorise content and regurgitate everything. Tutors and tuition agencies try to fill the gap, and work with students who have trouble in various skill sets.

What really riles me is the need for some parents to have a tutor who is a current teacher. Many think the status of a current teacher will bring relevance in the subject and the much needed improvement in grade for the student. This is a fallacy that needs to be broken. Imagine if Student A has a tough time with his Math/Science/English teacher, and that same teacher is sought as a private tutor.

This is one of those conundrums which will only be rectified with time and experience of the students and parents.
