Tutors International Reports Increase in Number of Families Hiring Private Tutors to Prepare Children for Boarding School Abroad

Leading private tuition provider Tutors International reports that more families are choosing to employ a private tutor for one to two years in order to prepare a child for boarding school abroad.

Oxford, United Kingdom, December 16, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Tutors International, a leading provider of private tutors to families all over the world, reports an increase in the number of private tutors being hired by affluent families to help their child prepare for boarding school abroad. Amongst the primary reasons for hiring the tutor is the desire to ensure a smooth cultural transition and also bring the child's educational standard to that required by the new school.

"We've seen a significant increase in demand for a tutor to help prepare a child for boarding school," said Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International, "and have an excellent relationship with some of the most exclusive private schools in England who recommend us to families whose children need help to meet entrance requirements. It may be that the education received thus far in their home country isn't of a similar standard, or that the school is concerned about the child's language skills. Either way, our full-time private tutors can always help to improve the child's academic level and command of English."

"Sometimes a family simply wants to prepare their child for the cultural differences they will encounter, and I have a great admiration for their thoughtfulness," Adam continued. "Whilst an adult can travel the world and make social mistakes, they are worldly and have enough self-assurance to be able to apologise and learn the local customs. However, for a child it's a very different experience. Without an understanding of the local culture, they can so easily make an error that will ostracise them from their peers on day one, and potentially damage their integration into the school. Over the long term it can have a detrimental effect on their education."

When asked if Tutors International always provides full-time private tuition to students preparing for English boarding schools, Adam replied; "Quite to the contrary; we are a global private tuition provider, so we can place tutors who will be able to help a child transition into a boarding school in any country in the world. Often parents will keep their child in their current school and ask our tutors to provide a supplementary education, providing a combination of cultural preparation and education, support with their current academic work and the development of any hobbies they may have such as playing an instrument. That's the beauty of our recruitment process," Adam concluded. "We take the time to tailor our service to the family's needs, finding superlative private tutors who can provide all of these benefits."
