Case Studies: England, Full Time

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:

This boy had been attending a local prep school, but his preferred choice of secondary school could not take him until a year had passed. A private tutor was needed to provide a home education during this transitional year.
Outcome
The Tutor needed to liaise closely with the new school to make sure that the boy would be able to integrate seamlessly when he joined the following year. We learned recently that the young man did well in his GCSEs in 2009.

Boy (15)
Problems
Home Schooling, Instead of School, Unhappy at School
Background
This young man attended a very well known private boarding school in England but was not doing well, and was off school for a term in the middle of his GCSE course.

Girl (18), Girl (13), Boy (15)
Problems
Home Schooling, Instead of School
Background
The eldest girl had failed to gain the grades she needed in her AS levels and was therefore at risk of not achieving the overall grades she needed for her first choice University. Her brother was preparing for GCSEs at the same time, and the younger girl had some mild dyslexia that merited occasional support.
Outcome
By far the greatest emphasis of the Tutor's work was with the eldest girl, who was to be homeschooled instead of attending a private sixth form college in London. By the end of the first term, the courses taken so far had been reviewed and the girl scored 3 As in her modules. At the end of the year the girl's final grades were AAB and she was accepted to her first choice University. The younger brother and the sister also thrived with the Tutor's support.

Outcome
Under the guidance of excellent Tutors the boy is planning on taking 14 GCSEs. He is ambitious and highly motivated, keen to make this year something in which he can look back on with immense pride in his achievements.
