“Private tutors for September 2015 need to be headhunted now”, Tutors International warns parents

Leading provider of full-time home tuition, Tutors International, today warned parents of the need to act quickly if they hope to secure the best private tutors for the September term.

The world’s leading provider of full-time private tuition, Tutors International, today warned parents that are considering engaging a full-time private tutor to start in September 2015 that they need to act now.

Adam Caller, who founded Tutors International in 1999, explained that recruiting a private tutor of the calibre that the agency is globally renowned for is a lengthy and rigorous one: “We take time to understand the dynamics of each family, the student’s educational needs and personal interests, and thoroughly interview candidates over a period of several months to ensure that the tutor, student and family are a perfect fit.”

Mr Caller explains that many parents who engage a full-time private tutor are relocating for work, and therefore it’s crucial that a tutor is hired and ready to start when they are. September is the busiest time for tutors and teachers alike, Mr Caller stated. Taking an older child out of school to begin full-time home schooling is least disruptive in the summer and the beginning of the autumn term, so tutors are often recruited for a September start date. Likewise, teachers who are looking for a new job will usually do so in preparation for a September start at a new school or in a new post.

Mr Caller said, “Discovering that the most talented educators have already been engaged can be very frustrating for parents. While it is possibly to find excellent tutors at short notice, starting the process early usually means that costs are lower, that you get exactly the right tutor for your needs, and that they can start when you need them to.”

“We demand exceptional personal and academic standards from our tutors on behalf of our clients. To fulfil their needs we need to unearth extremely high calibre tutors”, explained Mr Caller. “The right tutor is often employed elsewhere – as top professionals usually are – so we need to start discussions with them six months (at the very least) ahead of the expected start date.”

Therefore, if parents are considering employing a private tutor for the autumn term, they should be careful about leaving it any longer before starting the recruitment process.
