Tutors International founder
Adam Caller recommends successful strategies for educating young professional
OXFORD, UK: Tutors International founder Adam Caller has this
week advised parents to consider private tuition for children competing in
sports at elite levels. Tutors
International clients have found that private tuition is ideally suited to students
pursuing a sport or other extra-curricular interest professionally. The
flexibility offered by private tuition enables pupils to develop their academic
and sporting talents concurrently.
This advice follows a recent BBC Radio 4 broadcast in which a Tutors International pupil named Alex – who competes in karting at an international level – and his tutor named Paul were interviewed regarding the merits of private tuition for young athletes. Since the interview was recorded, Alex – aged 15 – has gone on to win a major karting competition in Asia.
Adam Caller commented, “I’m thrilled that
since Alex has had Paul as his private tutor and personal trainer, he has
achieved incredible success in his karting career, and he also continues to
excel in his studies. One-on-one private tuition can be a fast and effective
way of transforming children’s learning and sporting performance. For Alex, his
sporting commitments haven’t been restricted by his schooling, and similarly
his education hasn’t suffered despite extensive karting practice and races.”
interviewed by BBC Radio 4’s Caroline Bayley, Alex said: “Now that I have a
tutor I don’t have to be restricted by school hours. Usually I spend Monday to
Thursday doing schoolwork, and I learn the same things as other students but in
a shorter timeframe. My one-on-one tutor can condense the information more because
he knows me personally; he knows how I learn and the best way to feed me the information.“
Mr Caller added, “Since Alex’s sporting win,
we have received a number of enquiries from parents of karters and other
sportspeople who now recognise that traditional education systems cannot
effectively cater to the needs of many young athletes. Education whilst competing at a high level in
sport is so imperative that many families don’t make the most of the sporting opportunities
available to them for fear of disrupting their children’s school education.
It’s reassuring to see more families recognising the benefits of private
tuition for young athletes, and the high volume of related enquiries we have
received is testament to the commitment parents are making to both their
children’s education and their sporting careers.”
