Adam Caller, founder of leading private tuition company Tutors International, comments on the Dunbar number and advises prospective tutors to register for private tuition job alerts at tutors-international.net
OXFORD, UK: Following a surge in direct approaches from prospective private tutors, Tutors International founder Adam Caller has issued advice to educators recommending they register for private tuition job alerts at tutors-international.net. Due to the large volume of correspondence Tutors International receives, Mr Caller advises that this is the most reliable method of notification regarding new private tuition vacancies, and dissuades applicants from asking him to ‘bear them in mind’.
Citing Robin Dunbar’s famous ‘Dunbar Number’ – 150 being the suggested cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships – Caller explained, “I regularly receive speculative direct approaches from would-be tutors via email or telephone, enquiring if I can bear them in mind for suitable vacancies. I understand that prospective applicants are seeking to set themselves apart from their competition, but given the vast number of private tutor applications I have processed over the past twenty years since Tutors International was founded, it’s impossible for me to store and recollect details of educators I haven’t yet met – and even to some extent, those who I have.”
“This is why it is crucial that applicants instead register on the Tutors International database at tutors-international.net and sign up to our private tutor vacancy alert emails. Those registered on our site will be the first to receive notification of new vacancies, all of which are posted on tutors-international.net. A swift, well-thought-out application demonstrating a thorough match with the job specification will be the best way of putting yourself forward for consideration.”
Tutors International has been in business since 1999 and has built up expertise in the international recruitment of top-class educators. Every application is assessed by a senior member of the Tutors International team, and all shortlisted applicants are interviewed in person. All current jobs are listed on tutors-international.net – there are no others. If a position is listed, Tutors International is still accepting applications.
