Tutors International Clarifies Controversy Surrounding High-Salary Private Tutor Role

Tutors International, leading provider of private tutoring to UHNW clients, responds to recent discussions about their high-profile job ad for a tutor to support an ambitious architecture student. The £288,000-salary role was temporarily removed from the RIBA jobs board for further review and clarification.

London, 03 July 2024 – Tutors International, a leading provider of bespoke private tutoring services, addresses recent discussions regarding the high-profile job advertisement for a private tutor to support an ambitious architecture student. The advertisement, which offered a salary of £288,000, was temporarily removed from the RIBA jobs board pending further review and clarification due to its unexpected terms and significant salary.

Background and clarification

The job, which seeks an "excellent" architect to provide comprehensive academic mentorship, has garnered attention due to its substantial salary and specific candidate requirements. Reactions from architects and RIBA members expressed surprise at the high salary, with some doubting the job's authenticity. However, Tutors International confirms that this is a standard rate for a specialist, high-end private tutoring role.

Finding the perfect tutor for each student

Adam Caller, CEO and co-founder of Tutors International, emphasises that the goal of the recruitment process is to ensure the perfect fit for the student's unique needs. "In a capitalist society, people are allowed to choose how they spend their money," Caller stated. "Our business model is centred around matching the right tutor with each student, ensuring a harmonious and supportive educational experience."

Addressing concerns

Caller elaborated on the language used in the original advertisement, explaining that terms such as "socially appropriate background" and "fit and healthy" are intended to align with the student's lifestyle and ensure the tutor can integrate seamlessly into her world. "This is not about classism; it is about compatibility and ensuring that the tutor can share and support the values and ethos of the family," said Caller. "For instance, this particular student enjoys skiing, so a tutor who shares this interest can provide a more enriching and relatable mentorship experience."

The comparison to other high-society roles such as butlers and nannies, who are often selected based on similar criteria to ensure they fit into the family's lifestyle, further illustrates this point. "The objective is to provide a safe, supportive environment for the student, especially as she navigates living away from home for the first time," Caller added.

Tutors International remains dedicated to providing exceptional educational support tailored to the individual needs of each student. The company values the importance of finding the right fit for both students and tutors to foster a positive and productive learning environment.
