Increasingly, the super-rich employ
private tutors
Home tutoring has become more popular than boarding school for
the super-rich, because it enables a family to stay together as they jet
between residences, and a tutor can be paid as much as e150,000.
Like ordinary teachers, they sometimes have to deal with knives and
guns in the classroom, but it can be all the more frightening as the
parents don’t always see this as unacceptable behaviour. One family
allowed its 13-year-old to parade around the house with a Kalashnikov rife , because his father was grooming him
to take charge of the family business. Some kids don’t even have such an incentive! “They have nothing to work for,”
said one tutor. “For example, they don’t understand the concept of turning up on time to catch a train or plane.
They’ve always had their own jets, their chauffeured cars.”
