Tutors International reveals how treatment of private tutors can influence the success of home schoo
Tutors International, leading providers of full-time private tutors for prestigious home schooling families reveals how the treatment of the tutor by the family can have a huge impact on the success of home schooling
[UKPRwire, Wed Sep 23 2009] Following a review of tutor feedback, Tutors International reports that the way a family treats a full-time private tutor has a significant impact upon the success of the tutor's placement. Efforts to make a tutor feel at home within the family and help tutors orient themselves in a new cultural environment when teaching abroad have been particularly appreciated. The review has revealed that small gestures and thoughtfulness lead to increased emotional commitment from the tutor, resulting in extra effort and an improvement in the relationship with the pupil, facilitating better results from one-on-one tuition.

"The review of tutor feedback revealed a common pattern amongst our tutors," commented Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International. "Our tutors educate the children of some of the most affluent families in the world, and we keep in close contact with them to ensure that their work is progressing well and that they are happy. Contrary to what most people would think, our tutors are made most comfortable by subtle gestures on the part of the families they work for, rather than any large 'perks' or gifts."
When asked for an example, Adam replied; "One of our tutors is moving out to Southern Italy to tutor the child of a family that live there. When he mentioned that he has a boat, the family took the time and effort to secure his accommodation close to the marina, and help him source paint to prepare the boat's hull for the sailing season. Considering that he doesn't speak the native tongue, these actions saved the tutor no small amount of inconvenience. Both cost the family very little in financial terms, but the emotional benefits of making our tutor feel so welcomed are immeasurably large. It invites greater emotional investment on his part in return, which of course results in considerable extra effort. As with many dedicated, highly qualified professionals in education, monetary benefits are secondary to being treated with thoughtfulness and respect," Adam concluded. "The tutor feedback certainly reflects this."
