Geography Field Study Tutors

Bring that ‘wow factor’ to your Geography Trip with a Field Study Tutor

Our Geography Trips are designed to work successfully as independently-led tours, but we highly recommend that you opt for one of our specialist Field Study Tutors (FSTs) for some on-hand support.

Field Study Tutors are our unique geography experts who know everything there is to know about your destination. Not only can they offer a reassuring ‘arm around your shoulder’ from the moment you arrive, but they can provide strong support and have the geographical expertise to really bring the landscape to life.

Our Field Study Tutors are available in all of our geography tour destinations. Speak to a member of our team about integrating the services of a Field Study Tutor on your next tour.

The role of a Field Study Tutor
  • Support you in delivering geographical input whilst in the field
  • Take the pressure off you as the party leader
  • Help your students see the world through the eyes of a geographer

It’s simple really. They’re here to impart their specialist knowledge and geographical insight to inspire your students and take the pressure off you as the party leader. They’ve got all the know-how on your chosen destination and the visits you’ll embark on, so you can concentrate on working with smaller groups of students while they bring the surroundings to life.

Ultimately, our FSTs help to bring the landscape to life and add that 'wow factor' to your geography trip. 

The benefits of a Field Study Tutor
  • They are experts in your chosen destination
  • All FSTs have a background in teaching geography and touring
  • They will teach your students more about the culture and customs, as well as the geography of the area

They know the area and the sites like the backs of their hands, so you can feel confident that they’ll support you in delivering the geographical input in a way that will engage and excite your students.

Even better, all of our FSTs have a background in geography teaching and touring. They are just as passionate as you about enthusing young minds about geography in the field and with their expert knowledge they do just that.

Our FSTs will also introduce your group to the culture and customs of your destination, as well as help you with all things logistic to ensure your tour runs smoothly.

How an FST enhances the learning experience
  • They tailor their delivery for your students
  • They help to bring geography to life

They work with you to find out exactly what you want to achieve as a group and tailor your itinerary to your curricular needs.

All of our Geography Trips allow students to get up close and personal with the landscape, but an FST can help students see what lies beyond it. Students will be able to visualise and feel the experience first-hand, and we think there’s no better learning experience than that.



With us, there’s no one size fits all. Our FSTs can tailor their delivery in terms of vocabulary and explanations to cater for students of all ages and levels.
