Affluent parents are turning to full-time private tuition to help children with A-level re-sits

Tutors International has reported that an increased number of affluent parents are engaging the services of a full time private tutor to help their children prepare for A-level re-sits after receiving disappointing results in the first round of A-level exam results. This continues the trend reported by Tutors International over recent years of more families choosing to educate their children with one-to-one private tuition, rather than keeping them in an elite private school.

"We've had astounding success with students who received very disappointing results in the first part of their A-level course, and have turned their performance around completely," said Adam Caller, founder and senior partner of Tutors International. "I know that several of our clients have come to us via referrals, so I'm not surprised by this trend at all; parents are hearing about how we can help children to achieve after disastrous early results, and naturally want that for their own children."

When asked whether there is a particular type of student that responds well, Adam said; "We see the best results when a bright student has been let down by their school. They are told by their teachers that their work is of a high standard throughout the first year of A-levels, then they receive a shockingly bad result. This discrepancy is simply down to teachers not knowing the standard the student needs to attain, so they are unable to prepare adequately for the exams," Adam explained. "It's a horrible shock for all of the family, and dreams of entering a top university are suddenly under threat."

"We see this pattern again and again," Adam continued. "But thankfully, if the family can afford to pull their child out of the school immediately and provide dedicated full time private tuition, the situation can be remedied very quickly. That focused attention really is the best way to help a child to achieve their full potential," Adam said, "and if the student has aspirations to study at the top universities in this tough climate, this is the best way to get there."
