Wednesday November 26, 2014 - Email this article to a friend

A London tutoring company is offering its services in Val d'Isere this Easter. While a UK family tour operator has won an award for offering the service in Les Gets this season.

The private tutoring agency, Tutor House, is offering A-Level and GCSE revision courses in the heart of the French Alps.

Private tutors from Tutor House, based in South West London, will offer the help in lecture hall in the centre of Val d'Isere.

"As Easter is a crucial time for many students to revise and ensure that they are ready for their upcoming exams, many will want to spend some quality time studying during this period," said a statement from Tutor House.

The courses will be held in the mornings with children then able to ski in the afternoon. 

They can be booked on a day-by-day basis.

The courses will focus on past exam papers and exam technique ahead of summer exams.

The revision courses will take place over 3 separate weeks; 23rd - 27th March 2015, 30th - 3rd April 2015 or 6th - 10th April 2015.

Tutor House is also offering its services to the ski company, Ski Famille.

The company has already won an award from ATOUT France for the service.

The service is available in Les Gets during January though other dates may be possible.

Price, including flights and accommodation for the tutor, is £649 for 5x 2hr sessions.

Additional children can be added for £450 per child.

It does though require parents to take their children out of school during term-time, something that is currently illegal and parents can be fined for doing so.

Ski Famille says it is not encouraging any parents to break the law but offering the service as there is potential interest.

The company has spoken out in the past against the new law and urged a re-think; see here for that story.
