Credit crunch forces home schooling families to consider most cost effective private tutoring option
Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International, explains why full time live-in private tutors are becoming more popular during the time of the credit crunch
[UKPRwire, Thu Dec 04 2008] Tutors International, a leading provider of full time live-in tutors, reports that the credit crunch has affected the way that wealthy families are sourcing private tuition for their children. Instead of cutting back on private tutoring, families are seeking more cost-effective provision, turning to full-time tutors to provide a more comprehensive service for better value, rather than using tutors on an hourly rate.

Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International said “This is an interesting time in the private tuition industry. Whilst the media is reporting that private schools are beginning to feel the bite of the credit crunch, we are seeing a different pattern in our sector of private education. Families re-evaluating their finances are realizing that it’s economically advantageous to hire a full time live-in tutor, rather than pay an hourly fee for a few hours of limited tuition per week from the most expensive non-contracted tutors.”
When asked about the kinds of clients this concerns, Adam replied; “Across the spectrum of our clients, some families choose to have private tuition in addition to schooling, especially in the United States, whilst others recruit our tutors to provide the total education for full homeschooling. It’s the former that are really seeing the value of going for full time contracted tutors that we provide, as the tutor can support all aspects of homework as well as college SAT preparation which is a big concern for American families. I think what the credit crunch is demonstrating for us,” Adam concluded, “Is that in all of this financial doom and gloom, our clients are prioritizing their child’s education, as that is a necessity, rather than a luxury.”
