My family is planning an international vacation for the summer. Our 4 children range in age from 9 to 17. They are all high performers in a private school setting. We are quite aware of how “learning degradation” happens over summer break. We are looking for that right person to travel with us. We want the personal touch as well as someone who can relate local history around the world to different subject matter and make this interesting for our children. Are you skilled and experienced in multiple age groups and multiple subjects to do this? How important is the “student connection” to what and how you educate? We have tried for two years and have been unsuccessful finding anyone with the breadth and depth and ability to engage students to do this at the level of expectations we require. Can you help?
Here is how I would proceed on something like this—an international tutoring experience, as part of an international learning experience, would be a once in a lifetime experience for your family. We both would need to be very comfortable with each other to commit to such an arrangement. We would need to have several discussions and meet even multiple times. We must know and agree to what our mutual expectations are. Having said that, I would definitely consider this given the right situation. You need to know if I have the skills. Equally important, you absolutely must see how my style, my personality, my creativity and values align with those of your family.
