Oxford, United Kingdom, June 09, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Tutors International, a leading provider of private tuition and specialised tutoring services around the world, has added a new offering to its repertoire. The company's founder, education consultant Adam Caller, is providing specialist education consultancy for UK parents considering sending their troubled teen to America for enrolment at a wilderness centre. For more information, visit www.tutors-international.com or call +44 (0) 1865 435 135.
Wilderness centres offer families the opportunity to get specialist help for troubled children who are struggling with issues including anti-social behaviour, drug abuse and academic failure. The residential camps offer challenging scenarios designed to build self-esteem and teach positive values, alongside intensive counselling and therapy away from their home, school and peers who may be a detrimental influence.
"We've added this specialist educational consultancy to our services after speaking to parents who have run into difficulties after sending their children to American wilderness centres," said Adam. "The problem isn't with the centres themselves, as the best ones in America do fantastic things to help troubled children turn their lives around. The issue lies with the fact that removing a UK teenager from British education and then placing them within the American educational system can make it difficult for them to be re-integrated into British education afterwards."
When asked how Tutors International can help parents considering sending their child to an American wilderness centre, Adam replied; "Parents who are considering this type of extreme intervention are usually at the end of their tether, and need guidance through difficult questions which need to be asked before they have made their decisions. For example, whether a wilderness centre is the best option for their child, what are the consequences of missing schooling in the UK and who deals with their re-integration on return," Adam explained, "particularly if the child will be returning to the same environment. There are also important possibilities to be considered such as what can be done about exams and curriculum transition if the child wants to stay in the US," he added. "Sending a child to a wilderness centre can be hugely beneficial," Adam concluded, "but parents need to understand all of the issues involved before making such a big decision and financial commitment."
