Experiences of tutoring wealthy families abroad

    I am considering applying for a Tutors International job for after school and weekend tutoring to 2 children. It is a live out job, with a very high salary, and accommodation is provided. Does anyone have any experience of this kind of work? I know that I will miss the social aspect of classroom teaching. Anyone's personal experience of this would be great to hear.

    Hi there. Feel free to message me as I worked for TI teaching children of a well known Royal family.

    Can you share your responses with the forum? My first thought was that this sounds like a scam.

    Hi wanderman22

    No I want go into personal details about the high profile family who I worked for and also the agency TI.

    Happy to respond to private messages as I have for 'Cara' and run through the highs and lows of my whole experience. Definitely not a scam and one glance at their website would tell you that. On the contrary they are very professional and working for them could change your life; it opened my mind to new adventures.

    I personally couldn't think of anything worse. I like my freedom at the end of the day and it sounds a lot like a 24 hour job (especially if you're out on their yacht for weeks on end) but I absolutely see why people do it with the money offered.

    Sure! Let's go PM. I guess my questions would all involve how to apply for jobs like this.

    I spent a few years making pretty good money in Saudi Arabia using just my BA in English. Now I am in the US and I just finished my teaching cert and closing in on my Master's in Teaching, but I've been bitterly disappointed to find the high paying jobs seem to be gone.

    I want to find the high-paid foreign work again and tutoring for the rich sounds like it might be a way to do that. How did you break into that field?

    Search online for opportunities, though there are a few agencies that do this type of thing and the guardian link is a good one. The spec just matched me perfectly. It was a one off job though and you don't 'work' for the agency once the term of the post is over.
