The marine environment can prove to be a highly unique and exciting learning experience for children.

Taking a private sea tutor along on extended family yachting breaks enables families to enjoy more quality time together at sea as they head for winter destinations such as the Canaries and the Caribbean, without compromising children’s education.
Sea Tutors, providers of exceptional private tutors to UHNW families with a love of travel, worldwide, are well-versed in placing tutors on one-off, fixed term projects with families seeking to get away for longer over the winter period and enjoy their hobby as a family, while also ensuring that children’s academic requirements continue to be met.
Adam Caller, founder of Sea Tutors, commented, “There are no severe penalties for taking children out of school, contrary to widely held beliefs on the subject. Private schools are generally amenable if they know that the content is being covered and state schools have to consider overall attendance records — even so, if they do fine, the charge is minimal in comparison to the cost of an extended break.
“Our tutors are extensively interviewed and matched with our clients to ensure that they have the expertise required for life on board, to tailor learning experiences to the student’s individual needs and the current curriculum.”
The marine environment can prove to be a highly unique and exciting learning experience for children. Activities such as snorkelling and exploring deserted beaches provide tutors with the opportunity to use this environment to their advantage and really capture the child’s imagination. This is as much an adventure for tutors as it is for their students.
Mr Caller adds: “We have seen time and again how taking learning out of the classroom provides children with the opportunity to explore new environments and experiences and develop individual skills on a one-to-one basis, which often can reignite their love of learning upon their return. Several members of our core team have first-hand experience of life at sea and recognise what an exciting and inspirational learning environment it can be for children and tutors alike.”
