Endorsed Tutors and Career Tutors.
Each year we have a number of students who need to be ‘hosted’ as well as tutored. This means that a tutor provides accommodation for short periods of time usually during the holidays (from a weekend to up to a few weeks) to foreign students who are at boarding school but want to remain in the UK to study while their parents are abroad.
The hosting fee of £135 with an Endorsed Tutor and £175 with a Career Tutor covers bed and board and the presence of the adult; tuition fee are then additional. Some parents also request students to go on ‘Outings’ which sees the tutor take pupils to museums, the cinema and theatre, or simply go and play football in the park!
Endorsed Tutors: whilst most of them have been with us for some years now, others have been recruited recently. What unites them is that their passion for tutoring on the side of other activities such as writing, studying, acting or working because they have a talent for their subject and find tutoring a rewarding experience. We will have interviewed each of them face to face and one-to-one, followed up two references for them, ensured they have a current DBS and met them again at our induction session. Nearly every tutor we take on now has some tutoring experience already so we are very comfortable recommending them to you.
Career Tutors: a concept we introduced in 2012; we now have 50 of them on our books. These are tutors who have been with OC for more than three years (though half of them have been with us for much longer than this, some since 2000!), receive constant outstanding feedback and most importantly have decided to commit to tutoring for the foreseeable future. Some of them tutor full time while others tutor alongside studying or working, but what unites them is their experience and excellent reputation combined with their dedication to teaching and supporting students in the long term.
