The primary responsibility of a Tutor is to educate children. A Tutor may fill the role of both a teacher and mentor in a private household as well as organize and keep the children’s daily schedule. In addition, a Tutor is charged with providing a stimulating and friendly learning environment that will help encourage and motivate the child to excel. Often the Tutor will control the process of both schoolwork and after school studying, as well as escorting the children on field trips, trips with the parents or by themselves to various cultural activities.
We are able to aid in the placement of Tutors that have certifications that include, but are not limited to, NTA (National Tutoring Association), ITTPC (International Tutor Training Program Certification), ATA (American Tutoring Association), CPR and First-Aid certification.
