Oxford, United Kingdom, May 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Tutors International, specialists in the provision of private tuition and facilitating transitions between differing international education systems, reports that parents are underestimating the time required to place their child in the best UK independent schools after relocating to the UK. Lack of sufficient forward planning can damage a child's transition into the British education system. For more information, visit www.tutors-international.com or call +44 (0) 1865 435 135.
"We help a large number of families who are relocating to the UK, usually due to their work, and the majority are vastly underestimating the amount of time it takes to secure a place for their child in an excellent independent school," said Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International. "Some parents are calling us now, asking for help over the summer, expecting their child to start at the best independent school in London in September! When I explain that these schools usually have a waiting list of three years or longer, they have a terrible shock."
"In addition to underestimating the time it takes to secure a place in a private school, parents are also unaware of how long it can take to recruit a superlative private tutor to aid their child's transition into a new educational system," Adam added. "I would urge all parents to get in touch with us as soon as they can once the need for international relocation becomes apparent. Forward planning can make the transition for their child and the entire family much easier, efficient and more cost-effective than last minute arrangements."
