There are clearly families worlwide who ... can afford the privilege of an exceptional educator to teach their children from home
(PRWEB) July 18, 2012
Peter Baker, the Senior Consultant at Sage Tutors, is proud of his company’s global reputation for placing multi-talented tutors with families all around the world.
"We provide families anywhere in the world with a truly superb educational experience that combines the best traditions of independent education in the UK with innovative, modern approaches," says Baker.
"Our clients are people who value a broad intellectual and cultural learning experience for their children, or who need a portable and flexible educator to provide educational continuity without compromising on quality. Our tutors are talented teaching professionals. Many of them have been educated at Oxford or Cambridge, and many families all around the world really value this."
While the company continues to supply tutors to a growing clientele in the UK, Europe and USA, almost forty per cent of their enquiries this year have come from families in Africa, Asia or the Caribbean.
"In Africa and the Caribbean especially, parents who are disappointed with their schools are turning to us for solutions. They are often astonished by what we can offer and delighted that their children have alternatives to what is offered even in local private or international schools."
According to Baker, who has international teaching experience, people all over the world have always been attracted by the reputation for excellence in teaching rightly associated with British educators. "People trust the calibre of British education and regard British teachers as some of the best in the world. At Sage, our tutors are the best of the best."
Baker also believes that the increase in demand for private tutors to work with families in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean is indicative of changing lifestyles and a growing awareness of the benefits of home-schooling in these regions.
"There are clearly many families worldwide who appreciate the benefits of a truly liberal education. Many of these are expatriates who are looking for continuity and quality in education. But what we are seeing now is that there is a definite demand for this sort of education from families in the developing world, and that there are people who can now afford the privilege of an exceptional educator to teach their children from home."
Baker is excited to bring the advantages of prestigious tutor services to clients in countries where home-schooling and residential tutoring is still a new concept.
"We are very pleased to be working with families in countries as diverse as Malawi, Nigeria, Japan and The Bahamas. Sage will ensure they get a first-class education for their children."
