Elite residential private tutoring company, Tutors International, say that their tailored searches for a full-time private tutor are the key to a high-quality personalised education.
OXFORD, UK: Tutors International are a prestigious tutoring company founded on a commitment to finding the perfect tutor for each individual child, even if that entails a global search. This is because using a full-time private tutor enables a flexible and personalised approach to education. Private tuition can address individual requirements far more effectively than a traditional classroom setting, where the range of abilities, individual aptitudes, and circumstantial differences are broad.
Tutors International is different from other tutoring companies. They do not source tutors from a stock pool or database. A customised global search is conducted for each and every client enquiry. They meet with the Client to gain a thorough understanding of their child’s needs. They also note the kinds of attitudes, values and ideas that the family wish to instil in their child, deeming this as important as any curricular factors. Then a detailed job specification is written and the job is posted. Each job receives hundreds of applicants. Only the best candidates who meet every requirement get shortlisted. These are then interviewed and the final decision is made by the Client. After a tutor is placed, Tutors International provide aftercare services, available for support throughout the contract period.
This kind of individualised search for a full-time private tutor allows the most personalised education possible. The case study of a placement in Atlanta speaks for itself. The focus of the placement was two teenagers – a 16-year-old girl and a 17-year-old-boy. The family wanted to homeschool their children because they believed that a high-quality full-time private tutor was able to provide a better education than traditional schooling. For the first three years the children shared the tutor. Then, as their interests and strengths became more divergent, the Client opted for two tutors to allow for a more personalised education for each child.
Families want to nurture their children’s talents outside of the classroom too, with some integrating curriculum learning and their personal interests or talents. For example, one job required the tutor to instruct horse riding so the child could develop their equestrian skills too. Another job requested that the tutor was able to instruct sailing in addition to their academic and teaching credentials.
Tutors International has a select clientele of ultra high-net-worth (UHNW) individuals. This often means moving between multiple homes or travelling for work. A full-time private tutor allows stable high-quality education for these families, personalised to their lifestyle.
Specialist Private Tutoring
Founder of Tutors International, Adam Caller, observed that many UHNW families take up residency on yachts. These particular set of circumstances require an extremely personalised education. In response, Caller founded Sea Tutors to fill this specialist niche in the full-time private tutoring market.
Mr Caller is an advocate for personalised education. He believes it's the key to responding to each individual student’s difficulties, environment and talents:
“Some children have very specific learning issues and difficulties that are easier to identify, but then there are other children whose grades just seem to slip without warning, and it can be hard to pinpoint the cause. Often, the underlying reasons for poor academic performance or bad study habits can be effectively addressed by the individualised, one-to-one attention and guidance that can be provided by a quality private tutor. Whether full-time or in addition to a student's current mode of study, private tutoring provides children with flexible and focused learning that addresses their own individual needs, while also accommodating the family's circumstances and interests. Tutors International has observed children, with a variety of needs and circumstances, thriving under the supervision of our tutors.”
A Call-Out for Clients
In light of the pandemic, where many parents were forced to home school and were exposed to the shortcomings of the curriculum, the demand for a full-time private tutor who can provide a personalised education is set to rise.
Tutors International’s in-depth recruitment process takes time. For this reason, any families considering a full-time private tutor to provide a personalised education for their child should make their preliminary enquiry now if they hope to have a placement by September.
