Full-time private tutors
There are many benefits to having a full time Tutor whether you are planning to home school your children or to supplement to their current education. We’ve placed full-time tutors with:
- families who wanted to spend considerable time travelling
- families who want a different educational style or curriculum than that found at school
- students who are struggling to keep up academically
- students who need to improve their grades
- students who were being bullied or felt uncomfortable at school
- students with special educational needs, such as dyslexia or AD/HD
- students who have other commitments, such as acting or sports
Part-time private tutors
Though it is not our specialty, if the number of required hours is significant but not full time, or if a Tutor is required for only a few months, we can usually help. We have also been able to help with some hourly or online requests.
Full-time private tutors for short contracts
We are sometimes asked if we can supply tutors for shorter contracts then the normal twelve-month minimum term. Please contact us to discuss your plans.
We have successfully filled a number of short-term positions:
- A family wanting a holiday tutor in Sardinia
- A 6-week crash-course in A-level Latin
- Tutoring a sixth-former on a polo course in Buenos Aires
- Intensive revision for a student doing resits in Paris
- Help with an undergraduate dissertation

Many of our clients have multiple homes or travel extensively. This should not have to mean a disturbed and inconsistent education for children. A full-time travel tutor provides consistency for students and families accustomed to this lifestyle. It also means a flexible and imaginative approach to education, with Tutors able to integrate the changing surroundings and their teaching.
One family on an around-the-world yacht trip share their experience:
Every other Friday they have a Regional Module, where they work with the tutors on the geography, history and culture of the country we are in. They had decided last week that they would put on a Greek play, using their knowledge from Pompeii combined with research into Greek life and mythology. They wrote the play, made props, costumes, programmes and music, and practised and practised and practised some more. Amazing!
Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD and other specific educational needs
Founder, Adam Caller, has received specialist training in dyslexia and Attention Deficit Disorder and is very sensitive to children’s educational needs, offering many avenues of help. We can ensure a tutor has the appropriate experience and specialist training for any specialist educational need a student may have.
Special Projects and Specific Interests
Special projects is a programme of structured learning tutor placements or tutorials which will follow an agreed set of educational parameters. Tutors might work with the Client towards an educational qualification but equally, the programme may well be for personal enrichment. When a potential project has been identified along with a suitable tutor, Tutors International will prepare a project specification for the Client’s approval.
If you want a tutor that can also nurture and improve a specific interest or talent, we will find that tutor. We have placed tutors who have doubled as sailing instructors and equestrian coaches. Our tailored tuition expertise means we can source a tutor that is so much more than a school teacher.
