There is a number of educational consultancies doing what we do. The difference is that our approach is more personal. We work with each client individually, assess each child according to their academic abilities and individual proclivities. Once the child is placed into a school, our job is not over. We continue providing support in whichever form it is needed. Some children just need somebody to talk to, others want to do extra sports during exeat weekends, or require additional one-to-one tutoring to keep up with their school work. We do what is needed in each individual case.

We maintain continuous contact with our children and their parents, providing them regular reports about their child's progress. We organise birthday parties for the children, drivers to pick up parents at the airport, book theatre shows, restaurants and can offer many more services, including finding accommodation to buy or rent.
