American education funding cuts increase demand for Tutors International full-time private tuition

Tutors International has reported a significant increase in demand for full-time private tuition from American families who are concerned about the impact of education funding cuts. State funded schools in California are merging classes to cope with the drop in funding caused by the long term effects of the credit crunch, lowering the standards of education and prompting affluent families to consider full-time private tuition in their homes as a preferable alternative.

"I have spoken to several families in California and Texas who have seen a marked decline in the quality of education provision in their local state schools," commented Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International. "It's an evitable consequence of merging classes and decreasing the ratio of teachers to students. In some affluent areas of California, such as Malibu, there are very few private schools, especially at elementary school level. The families who were previously satisfied by the local state provision are now turning to us as a solution as there are simply no spaces for their children in the local private elementary schools."

"It's a very worrying time for these families," Adam continued, "especially in the more affluent areas of California as not only is there a shortage of private school places, there is also the requirement of Californian State law to have children home schooled by individuals with state teaching credentials. The families I have spoken to have been greatly relieved to hear that all of our tutors in America have credentialed status, and did so before the ruling was made. Many parents of elementary school children are seeing this as a positive opportunity to change to an excellent home education, provided by superlative tutors, with a view to taking the ISEE and then putting their child in a good Middle School," Adam concluded.
