The leading international private tutoring firm has expanded its operations to Hong Kong, providing greater service and peace of mind for Asian clients and tutors amidst a ‘super-tutor’ culture.
The UK-based private tutoring firm, which already has offices in London and the USA, has announced its expansion into China and Hong Kong with the opening of their new office.
The tutoring market in Hong Kong is particularly buoyant, with ‘super-tutors’ achieving celebrity-like status in the country.
Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International, commented: “With many super-tutors in Hong Kong enjoying celebrity status, their faces plastered on billboards and families clamouring to retain their services, we found many of the most influential families continue to seek us out. Despite – perhaps because of – the abundance of tutors, they were finding it hard to distinguish between the excellent and the mediocre candidates. We’ve already seen a spike in demand for their services in Hong Kong because of our excellent reputation for due diligence.”
Tutoring is a highly attractive career option in China, attracting potential tutors from the UK and USA to seek out opportunities there, but this can make it difficult for families to sort through applications, and leaves them vulnerable.
In a culture where pop-star looks are just as desirable as credentials and expertise, when it comes to tutors, the services provided by companies such as Tutors International are needed in Hong Kong to prevent families from being taken advantage of. Since it was founded in 1999, the firm has built a solid international reputation on its thorough approach to recruitment and due diligence, and its ability to secure the perfect tutor match for each client. Mr Caller is also a vocal advocate for increased regulation and protections, to ensure the ongoing safety and wellbeing of both clients and tutors.
Mr Caller added: “We have placed tutors with families all over the world, with families in a variety of different situations and circumstances, including those with special educational needs. Thanks to our rigorous approach and thorough matching process we have seen children really thrive under the care and attention of our tutors. It is very important to us that our Hong Kong clients are able to look past the glamour and celebrity and have the full picture before deciding on the perfect tutor for their child.”
