A unique approach

Valdo Academics is a bespoke

 international tutoring agency, committed to making academic tutoring

more effective, fun, and ethical.


We headhunt outstanding academic tutors who inspire their students and bring a subject to life. 

We help students across a range of channels:

What lessons do we offer?

We connect the best tutors with students from all around the world who wish to attend the best universities or improve in the International Baccalaureate diploma.

Our tutors are typically "cum-laude" graduates from the most prestigious American and British institutions. They have an extraordinary academic background, unique professional experiences and a passion for the world of art, business, and research.

How does it work?

Our lessons take place according to a calendar agreed with the student. We use cutting edge technologies to carry out online lessons:

Shared interactive whiteboard 

Skype Calls

Google Docs / Google Sheets

If you live in London, the lesson can also happen in person, as many of our tutors are based here.

Meet extraordinary academics:

Mentors more than tutors

Valdo Academics does a job that goes beyond study preparation: our tutors assist students on the IB path from a human as well as an academic point of view.


Thanks to their young age and the confidence they gain in children, in fact, they become points of reference from which students can draw inspiration.


They are therefore positioned halfway between a professor and a friend, occupying the crucial  position of mentors.
