However, compare this to missing out on the holiday completely due to school being in session or upcoming tests and exams then it might begin to look a bit more attractive.
Well it does in Europe where traveling with or ‘flying in’ a private tutor is having a grande renaissance if the offerings of private tutoring companies in London are anything to go by. Whilst the family tutor will probably never again reach the heady ‘family member’ status of Jane Austen or Agatha Christie novels; spending one’s days lazily tutoring down the deathly River Nile in affable companionship, probably this is due more to the financially independent nature of today’s tutor rather than any lack of need on behalf of the family.
London-based private tutoring agency, Tutor House is offering a new service to provide private tutors to accompany families on holiday in the UK or overseas and tutor children aged 11-18 in any GCSE and A Level subject, as well as provide Common Entrance Exam preparation. Available on a flexible basis, bookable by the day, Tutor House tutors offer up to 5 hours of tuition each day, combined with childcare, and tutors will travel with the family, or can fly in for a specific period, to provide the extra academic input.
Is your tutoring company offering and marketing this type of flexible service to jet setting families? If you are not you could be missing out on a very lucrative revenue stream.
However, as the Daily Telegraphs’s private tutor will tell you in the well penned article ‘Private Tutoring on a Luxury Yacht’, make sure the ground rules and accommodations are worked out well in advance to prevent the dream posting becoming the trip from hell.
