    Residential

    Whether your family has a home overseas, enjoys short term trips abroad, or plans on sailing around the globe, Bespoke Tuition can supply you with a carefully matched one to one professional home tutor wherever and whenever you require. Intensive daily tuition affords the opportunity to really drill down on specific areas and bridge gaps. Weakness areas are soon addressed, targets put in place and learning reinforced; results are frequently swift. We find half terms are increasingly popular times to take one of our tutors away with a family. Tutoring can take place in the morning followed by skiing/snorkelling/holiday activities in the afternoon.

    Key advantages:

    • Academic continuity whilst abroad
    • Intensive, fast track tutoring solution
    • Full time use of a focused tutor
    • Rapid and effective progress
    • Daily reinforcement means information is retained!
    • Study skills can be developed and refined
    • Optional extension beyond the school syllabus
    • Opportunity for non desk-based learning
    • Take the Tutor on that Christmas/Easter holiday!
    • Time affords creative, innovative teaching methods
    • Scope for mentorship
    • Potential warm-up for homeschooling

    Locations

    Since 2010, our residential tutors have accompanied families to a range of locations from cottages in Devon to safari lodges in Kenya, lakeside cabins in Canada and yachts around the world. Our carefully chosen “travelling tutors” work anytime, anywhere, to ensure academic continuity whilst a student is abroad.

    Accommodation

    Tutors can either live-in with families or be accommodated in a nearby apartment, hotel or bed & breakfast. Tutors must have a private room with wifi. Meals can be taken with families or independently, according to the family's preference.

    Duration

    Asssignments can last anything between 1 week-1 year. The tuition schedule is set by the family but the tutor usually spends anywhere between 10-30 hours per week tutoring. Having an exclusive tutor means that plans can change and the schedule can be adjusted, since the tutor will always be on hand to conduct tutorials when required.
