We understand how difficult it can be to find tutors with relevant knowledge and teaching experience to come to your home. We will help overcome this hurdle by sourcing exceptional online teachers to tutor students in Switzerland. All of our online tutors are certified to teach in the UK, have years of experience teaching qualifications like the IB and are experts in using cutting-edge platforms to provide outstanding online tuition.
For our clients looking for specialised, short-term help we can arrange for tutors to go to Switzerland on short and long-term residential placements. We can fly a tutor to Switzerland from the UK to provide intensive face-to-face tuition, usually for a week or more during school holidays. This type of tuition is best suited for meeting a difficult goal such as school admissions exams in a short space of time.
Getting the most from one to one tuition is as much about the relationship between the student and the tutor and the teaching abilities of the tutor. In order to match students with the right Owl Tutor we take the time to understand your needs, expectations and goals for tuition.
After listening to your specific requirements, we will be in a position to make recommendations of which of our tutors to use. Our UK-qualified teachers will be expected to have relevant experience of the specific qualifications that our clients are looking for help with such as the International Baccalaureate or A-Levels.
Once we have collated the tutors that we recommend to provide you with tuition, we will send you details of each of the tutors so that you can make the final decision. Once you have chosen who you would like to meet, we will swap details between the two of you so that tuition can begin.
