Widely regarded as offering the ‘best education in the world’ the British Independent School has a long tradition of producing world leaders, confident young adults and academic achievers. With such a bewildering array of choices to navigate, knowledge of the unique character of each school and the opportunities they offer is invaluable. Front Row Education have that knowledge.
You will work closely with our experts to plan for, prepare and access this world – class education for your children.
We identify and recruit high quality residential and part time Tutors for your family. Tutors will be matched specifically to your educational needs, family circumstances and pattern of life.
Whilst all placements are different, here are a few brief examples of the types of positions that we select for:
Full time home schooling
The Client is resident in Hong Kong on business for a year long placement and would like to maintain the curriculum continuity for his two children by using a home Tutor rather than registering in an International school.
The Client is concerned that her daughter is struggling with her schoolwork, particularly in Mathematics and Sciences. She is looking for a Tutor to provide support for her after school, 3 evenings a week. The Tutor will also spend some time 2 evenings a week working with her younger brother, who is beginning to show an interest in the Classics and needs additional extending. This placement will be for 12.5 hrs a week.
Full time home schooling
The Clients do not want the formal educational approach that schools tend to offer and is seeking a full time tutor who will broaden their children’s experiences through a series of visits and project work rather than limiting their education to classroom learning. Although unorthodox, the Client feel that this approach will engender a lifelong love of learning.
We are always happy to talk about your individual requirements. We run an adaptable, consultative service that specifically meets your needs whatever your lifestyle, wherever you are in the world.
For non-UK residents, under British law (the children’s acts 1980 & 1989) each child receiving a full time education (more than 12 weeks) must have a legally appointed Guardian present in the UK. The Guardian duties, connected with the child’s stay at school, include:
- Representing the child with the school authorities in case of academic or pastoral issues
- At the start of the academic year, purchasing items for the child i.e. school uniform, books and equipment, name tags for clothing, bedding, telephone cards etc
- Assisting with travel arrangements for the child at the start / end of term, for ‘Exeat’ weekends and for half term holidays
- Updating and renewing legal documents such as visas
