From tutors hired to work on film sets to tutors that double as professional kart-racing coaches, Tutors International has consistently succeeded in recruiting highly specialist home tutors. Their latest vacancies are for a placement in Herefordshire, England (HER 0821), and a Travel Tutor based between Austria, Switzerland and Italy (MUC 0821).
Tutoring Job in Herefordshire
Vacancy HER 0821 is a placement with the family of a lovely young man, aged 11; they seek a highly resourceful and sporty Tutor to inspire and reignite his enjoyment of learning. The full-time homeschooling role will commence as soon as possible and will be based in Hereford, England.
To date, the student has yet to enjoy an inspirational or positive school environment. Instead, he has been subjected to a succession of teachers who have failed to appreciate the wealth of wonderful attributes he has to offer. What is more, he has also suffered at the hands of cruel bullies and has felt unprotected by teaching staff on this matter. Exceedingly tall for his age and currently not at his desired level of fitness, he naturally stands out amongst his peers. He even comes across as being older than his years in some respects. However, despite his physical appearance, he stands out as an exceptionally mature young man in several ways, while yet to balance this maturity with other elements of his childlike outlook.
Understandably, he doesn’t want to return to his school in September. He has clearly lost his confidence and will shy away from peer interaction, unless this is mindfully arranged by the Tutor, perhaps during sports activities. He lost trust in his schoolteachers and will greatly benefit from an approachable role model and mentor, who can guide him on his new learning journey during his first year at secondary school level.
He appreciates teachers who are fair and promote a safe learning environment and is aware that he learns better when expectations are high but when he is free to work at his own pace without false time pressures.
The young man generally does well academically, although he could undoubtedly accomplish much more under the right direction. He is excellent at English and is interested in technology, especially computing. He is currently studying French, Latin and Spanish and is keen to pick up Japanese in the future. Despite his fondness of some subjects, he often questions the importance of others. He has not been able, for example, to get a proper answer to the question “what is the point of geography?” His notable academic potential shows great promise. He is intelligent, capable of working at an advanced level and boasts a superb memory.
The student is not the sportiest individual at present, but he is keen to adopt a more active lifestyle. He is interested in a range of sports, for example, rowing, archery, shooting, swimming, tennis, rugby and cricket. He is also fascinated by marine biology and would possibly like to study at Oxford University in the future.
Travelling Tutor Job: Austria, Switzerland, Italy
Vacancy MUC 0821 is a position requiring an inspirational tutor and role model who can establish a full-time home-school environment for a delightful young man, aged 11. Experience with the UK syllabus is a must, along with a project-based approach in keeping with the IB philosophy. The role will last at least one academic year, predominately based in Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
The young man will be 12 in October after starting the 6th Grade a month earlier. He is accustomed to a broad educational system following his long-term attendance of the Bavarian International School in Munich. A lovely boy who prefers to learn through project-based activities and working alongside peers as part of a team, he has enjoyed the fun and interactive project work provided by the IB Primary Years Programme and favours ongoing assessment over formal examinations.
The student is a budding linguist, already fully bilingual in English and German. He has recently started and is interested in French and Mandarin and Italian at some future point. He does not consider himself to be particularly artistic, nor does he currently play a musical instrument, however, he is fond of classical music. His greatest passion is being outside with nature and especially everything to do with water. From his pet sturgeon to achieving fishing certificates, his love for marine biology and oceanic life is of huge interest. Despite not being a strong swimmer, he has accomplished his PADI diving certificate and is working towards the advanced level, hoping to qualify next year.
This young man’s learning journey may be navigated via the home-school path for several years, or he may pursue a keen interest to attend either a UK or Swiss boarding school.
Specialist Home Tutors from the Best
The two latest vacancies from Tutors International exemplify the specificity of the tutoring roles that the company recruit for. Tutors International has extensive experience finding specialist home tutors who can accommodate requests such as Project-Based Learning (PBL), extensive travelling, emotional support for students dealing with bullies, as well as tutors who align with and encourage specific interests and hobbies.
It is this commitment to delivering the perfect fit for their clients that has earned Tutors International a place as finalists in the ‘Customer Experience and Loyalty‘ category of the Growing Business Awards this year.
As both vacancies demonstrate, private home tuition from Tutors International aims to help students excel in their personal growth as well as their educational performance. The tailored recruitment process for each vacancy means that tutors can help each individual student with their specific needs and preferences. This results in a holistic education that prepares them not just for exams, but for life after formal education. The ability for tailored private tuition to deliver this transferrable education is just one of the things that tuition expert and CEO of Tutors International, Adam Caller, will be speaking on at the prestigious Prestel & Partner Family Office Forum.
The Recruitment Process
Tutors International’s tailored service requires a thorough recruitment method for specialist home tutors. The application process is rigorous and highly customised for every tutoring job. Of the hundreds of CVs and résumés from private tutor applicants, they only shortlist the candidates that meet every single criterion on the job specification and consider only the very best and most qualified of those shortlisted tutors. They then check references for every tutor being considered. The remaining handful of tutors that pass every quality check are then interviewed in person. The two best candidates are then put forward to the Client. The final decision is made by the Client.

Tackling what is notoriously known as the hardest year of high school, senior year, may seem overwhelming. The flawless transcript, a high ACT/SAT score, extracurricular activities, a job and college applications — with this seemingly long list of priorities, it may be unclear where to even begin.
That’s why it’s important to take advantage of all the resources provided and available to you in order to set yourself up for success. As a sophomore in high school, but with many senior friends, I’m learning you can’t be overly prepared for college planning, so take note!
Be prepared for the ACT/SAT
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, universities were beginning to make the ACT/SAT optional. Students can choose to take both, one or none, and each is distinctly different. The ACT consists of four sections: English, Math, Reading and Science. The SAT is composed of math, evidence-based reading and writing.
If your university of choice requires standardized tests (or even if they don’t), you’ll want to be sure you’re prepared if you are opting to take them. One way to prepare for these tests is through private or group prep classes. Prep books that contain practice tests, specific skills and other exercises can also be a great help. Popular prep books include The Princeton Review, Kaplan, Barrons, McGraw Hill and the official ACT or SAT prep guide. YouTube is also a big help with many prep channels that go over tips, skills, timing strategies and anything related to preparing for these standardized tests. Two that I recommend are SuperTutor TV and The Princeton Review. An easy resource is simply making a dedicated effort to read and write more. Whether it’s a school book or read-for-pleasure book, the more you read and write increases your reading comprehension and speed on tests.
Local universities such as Washington University in St. Louis, Fontbonne University and Saint Louis University are test optional for applicants of 2022. None of these schools use test scores for scholarships, however there are merit scholarships, depending on the school, that are offered to a very small number of individuals who have achieved outstanding academic achievement as well as performing high on a standardized test. Whether a student chooses to take these tests or not, it is only a small part of the application process.
Seek out your college counselor
Although the application process is similar for most colleges, it’s important to use your high school counselor for guidance well before you begin. Karen Etlisky, founder of Find Your Voice college counseling, says that she sees students apply from anywhere from three to 30 schools, so having professional assistance is invaluable.
It is important to first have a counselor and get to know them. Etlisky says, “A counselor can help you plan ahead to know what is coming so you can be proactive in the process and not have ‘I wish I knew…’ moments. There is so much misinformation floating around, it is very good to be able to have someone tell you what you need to know.”
A counselor’s job is to find universities that fit the student, create a list of safety/target/reach schools, complete a student’s FAFSA, craft unique application essays, and help regulate any stress or anxiety regarding the daunting process.
Etlisky also adds, “While I don’t think it’s necessary to begin the college process in earnest before spring of sophomore year, many parents like to know they have someone to ask questions and go to for help beginning in ninth grade. Most commonly, my clients begin with their students in 10th grade.”
Apply early and often
A college application can consist of many different components including an application form, essay (main essay and supplementals), transcript, test scores, school profile, recommendation letters and a list of activities. A great way for students to begin is to create a high school resume that consists of all of your activities, extracurriculars, AP courses taken, work experience and internships.
Teachers prefer letter of recommendation requests early on so that they are able to hit the important deadlines. I know that essays can be the most difficult requirement to start, but if you brainstorm all ideas, even if they are not pretty, it will get the process flowing! Students can choose to submit their applications through early decisions, early action or through the regular deadline.
Admissions committees look at applications holistically, so make sure equal effort is given to all areas of the application to give yourself the best chance at admission. Nothing is guaranteed, so give yourself a break in knowing that you did all that you could. And remember, that no matter where you go, if you put forth the effort, you will receive a great education — no matter where you land.
