We are delighted that you have chosen to visit the Tutors Worldwide website. Tutoring overseas is rightly popular among school leavers (and also recent graduates), as it offers the opportunity to experience life in another culture, to travel extensively, to make new friends and to gain genuine life experience: all positive factors in the maturing process, along with an invaluable break before embarking on further studies. It is a move at least smiled upon, if not positively encouraged, by the majority of tertiary institutions.
Tutors Worldwide was established from personal experience in the education profession of the time-consuming and expensive frustrations encountered by students seeking positions at suitable schools and by schools seeking to recruit suitable tutors. Tutors Worldwide combines personal contact with and knowledge of each school with the results of an extensive interview with each applicant to maximise the rate of successful appointments from the perspective of both student and school. Founded fifteen years ago we have sought to retain recruitment and support at a truly personal level. Between them our staff of Robin Finney and Mike Hodgson bring many years of experience as schoolmasters, housemasters and headmaster to the organisation. All candidates are interviewed by this small team, who also visit all tutors during their gap year. This personal and genuinely interested approach enables Tutors Worldwide to offer the highest level of service while keeping costs to a minimum.
We invite you to explore the website further, to read the reflections of previous TWW gap tutors and to access the application information and forms as appropriate. Please be sure to access the paperwork according to your country of residence. Once again welcome to the world of the gap tutor.
