Private tuition expert and founder of Tutors International urges parents to act quickly should a private tutor for re-sitting A-levels be required

Now that families have recieved A-level and GCSE exam results, Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International, urges parents to act quickly if their child has not received the grades they need for university and are planning to re-sit their A-levels in January.

“This can be a very stressful time of year for families,” said Adam, “and that’s why I am reinforcing the point now that if parents want to help their child to perform as well as they possibly can in any A-level re-sits, they need to get in touch with us as soon as they can. It takes time to find a tutor of the calibre we require,” Adam explained. “Many excellent private tutors have positions in schools that require a term notice period.”

“With more competition than ever before for university places, I can’t emphasise enough the importance of early intervention when a bright student is underperforming” Adam continued. “For parents of children who have performed poorly at GCSE level with aspirations to attend one of the top universities, I would go a step further and advise them to consider switching fully to full-time private tuition either instead of or as well as school. A full-time tutor of the highest calibre, teaching up to four A-level subjects, will cost approximately £80,000 a year, and top results are much more likely.” Adam concluded.
