Case Studies

As well as conducting customised recruitment processes for each Client enquiry, our ability to innovate in the tutoring market has set us apart from other high-end tutoring companies. Tutors International supplies elite tutors onboard yachts and superyachts. We’ve recruited micro-school coordinators in the Puerto-Rican mountains, specialist SEN tutors, and academic-vocational hybrid tutors.

This highly specialist service, tailored approach, and exclusive client base earned Tutors International the epithet, ‘the Dom Perignon of tutoring companies’ (The Good Schools Guide). TI Tutors and Clients alike have shared why we are deserving of this title.

Here you can read through some case studies of exemplary private tuition that we have assigned all over the world:

The student is an adult woman who relocated from Italy to England. In Italy she worked as a fashion journalist and she decided to return to work, this time in England, writing in English. Unfortunately her level of fluency was nowhere near what was required to be successful and it was hoped that some intensive tuition from a superb Tutor would be able to develop her understanding of grammar, help her acquire a more extensive vocabulary, and improve her creative writing.
Outcome
A native English speaking Tutor with Received Pronunciation was found. They had impeccable grammar, both written and spoken, an English degree from a top flight University, an EFL qualification and appropriate experience with adult learners.

Outcome
A very experienced academic was found to work with the Client. He escorted him as he travelled for his business. The Tutor provided lessons in the time between meetings, in the evenings and whenever else the time could be found. This arrangement lasted for a full year, after which the Client’s Arabic was at the desired standard.
