We receive requests for residential tutoring where a private tutor lives with a family for anything from 2 days to a year (or more).
School holidays are popular times for short term residential tuition. Working with a private tutor for 2 to 28 days without the distraction of school will give a child a great boost. Tutors will cover gaps in their knowledge, consolidating school work, practising exam questions and working on extension material.
On short term residential placements, a tutor normally teaches four hours a day, two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon (plus extra breaks if need be). More than four hours a day can be done, but this will depend on the age and concentration of the student as four hours of one-to-one tuition is intensive. Many students will need time on their own to absorb what they’ve learnt.
If a family lives outside of London, whether in the UK or abroad, or is embarking on a period of extended travel, they may request residential tutoring on a long term basis. This can be for a period of anything from 1 month to a year – or even longer.
The private tutor normally works Monday to Friday and tuition is either worked around school hours or arranged according to the family’s schedule if the child is not attending school. The curriculum followed can either mirror what the child is doing at school or be tailor-made to the student (whether following a traditional curriculum or allowing greater freedom in what is taught such as project-based learning).
Residential tuition allows a tutor to get to know a student very well. Discussions over mealtimes and sharing free time together allow the tutor to continue challenging, supporting and building confidence outside of lesson times.
