Case Studies: Full Time, Travel

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:

Background
We have done some amazing activities - a lot of which the adults decide to come on too! - horse riding along a beach; visiting an active volcano; hiking through jungles; climbing up waterfalls and visiting traditional villages to witness spirit dances and land-jumping etc. We were also really lucky to be on a deserted beach in New Caledonia when several sea snakes slithered ashore to lay their eggs! Pretty unique and the children loved it! J - The Tutor

This was just one of the many accounts of the wonderful experiential and hands-on learning that travel and education can offer.
