Parents planning to secure full-time private tuition for their child leave arrangements too late, wa
Tutors International, a leading provider of full-time private tutors, warns parents that arrangements for one-on-one private tuition need to begin at least nine months before the tutor is required to start
[UKPRwire, Fri Sep 25 2009] Tutors International is urging parents considering the hiring of a full-time private tutor to make contact as soon as possible, even if the tutor is not required until autumn 2010. Many parents neglect to begin the process of recruitment until the term before the private tuition needs to begin, resulting in increased expense and sometimes a reduction in choice.

"It may seem odd to be pressing parents to get in touch many months in advance of actually needing the tutor, but in our experience it makes the entire recruitment process so much smoother, and results in a wider choice of candidates," explained Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International. "Ideally parents who need a tutor for the end of summer 2010 should get in touch by the end of this year. This enables us to meet the family, evaluate the needs of the child and put together a detailed recruitment brief to advertise for the position in January. Then we would have a shortlist of candidates by the end of the spring term, giving the chosen tutor the opportunity to provide a full term of notice if necessary, ready to start at the end of the summer holidays."
When asked why so many parents don't plan far enough in advance, Adam replied; "I think many parents simply aren't aware of the fact that academic recruitment has a seasonal cycle, and that many of the best tutors already hold teaching positions in schools that require a term's notice period. I know several enquiries have come in late as parents have been uncertain about whether a full-time tutor will be required. They may be considering a year long trip around the world, but have been reluctant to start tutor recruitment until their plans are finalised. I would recommend to any parents who think there might be a change in circumstances that would require home schooling by a full-time private tutor to get in touch and begin the process as soon as possible. If later they realise that need isn't there, they can easily withdraw," Adam reassured. "But if they leave it late and then decide they really do a need a tutor, it makes everything much harder."
