In a recent development, the elite private tutoring company invested in an Ultra-VIP advertising package with The Celebrity Personal Assistant Network, an American firm which provides staffing for ultra-high-net-worth individuals and their families. The Celebrity Personal Assistant Network was founded in 2007 by veteran celebrity assistant Brian Daniel, who has worked with Hollywood A-list, American aristocracy, billionaires, and royalty. He is now a staffing consultant, career coach, and executive coach. Mr Daniel's firm specialises in providing celebrities and high-net-worth families with world-class staff throughout North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East, which explains why he was keen to form a relationship with Tutors International. Mr Daniel elaborates: "For a while, I've been wanting to get more mileage out of my website by having some more branding with a vendor that compliments my website." So, what is it that distinguishes Tutors International from other tutor placement companies? Elite Residential Tuition: Academic Excellence and Personalised Curricula Adam Caller, CEO and Founder of Tutors International, sheds some light on why Tutors International is considered to be a world-leader in private tuition. "We are not merely a placement agency; we offer guidance and support in the achievement of academic goals, working with both Clients and their Tutors to ensure a world-class private education of the highest professional and academic standards.
