New Courses for Aspiring University Students Launched by Private Tuition Agency, Combining Outdoor Activities and Academic Tuition

Tutors International, leading agency for live-in private tutors, has announced a range of new courses offering designed to give students the opportunity to demonstrate breadth of experience when applying to university

Oxford, United Kingdom, March 17, 2009 --( Tutors International is adding a new range of courses to its private tuition offering, designed to combine intensive outdoor pursuits with academic tuition. The new courses are flexible in length and can cover activities such as measuring the destruction of reefs in Thailand, or experiencing a working farm in South Africa, experienced alongside the tuition of academic subjects. The course has been developed to give students the chance to demonstrate the breadth of their interests when applying for university, as non-academic pursuits are being used as differentiators between students who have the very best academic grades.

"We're very excited about this new course," said Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International. "It's the perfect blend of the physical and intellectual. I think it might be the first of its kind, in that the tutors are able to provide very in-depth tuition in the chosen activities, whilst at the same time providing high level academic tuition. Most outdoor pursuits courses only offer the physical side, but as we have a remarkable network of academically excellent tutors who are not only qualified school teachers, but also highly qualified in outdoor activities, our courses can offer both."

Fees will include flights, food, accommodation and all equipment that will be purchased specifically for each student. "Having brand new equipment that is the right size is very important," said Adam. "If the student loves the activity so much that at the end of the course they want to keep it, the equipment will be available to them at cost price. But I have to say," Adam continued, "that it's not the quality of the equipment or the flexibility and diversity of the courses that excites me about this. It's the thought that when a student asks a question around the camp fire in the evening, the tutor will be able to answer in an accurate and thoughtful way. With their teaching experience, our private tutors can turn all aspects of the outdoor pursuits into lessons in physics, maths and other academic subjects, something you simply don't get on average student outdoor activity breaks."
