Field Study Tutors

Your geographical expert in the field

Our geography school trips are designed to work successfully as independently-led tours, but if you’re after an extra member of your team who has expert, local geographical know-how, then our specialist Field Study Tutors (FSTs) are just the people.

Who opted for a Field Study Tutor on their 2022 Geography Tour rated them 5 out of 5.

Every one of our Field Study Tutors has a background in geography teaching and touring and is on-hand to support you in delivering geographical input in-the-field. Your Field Study Tutor will be allocated to your group due to their in-depth knowledge of your chosen destination, allowing them to not only cover the geographical teaching element, but also introduce your group to the local cultures and customs along the way. And it doesn’t end there… a Field Study Tutor is part of the Rayburn team so they will have your itinerary to hand and will be able to assist with logistics on tour to ensure everything runs smoothly and you have a great tour.

“Val was wonderful, and I cannot praise her highly enough or thank her enough. She was so knowledgeable about Iceland and the geographical/geological theory and fascinating to learn from. She had lots of tips and hints about where to go and what to do on all our visits and whilst some staff members had been before, we now have some of the best group photos because Val guided us. We were all constantly learning and absorbing her enthusiasm.”
