Case Studies: Europe, 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:
