The reasons for residential tuition are varied. Sometimes extra support is needed when important exams are imminent, or traditional schooling may not suit a family’s lifestyle.
Residential tuition allows a tutor and student to take advantage of family holidays, long weekends or breaks within the school year to develop additional knowledge outside the curriculum.
Our tutors have worked with children for several years and have extensive experience in residential tutoring. The UK office offers admin support so tutors can focus on your child and their specialised programme. The Education Hotel tutors don’t just act as a teacher to your child – whilst with you, they serve as mentors, role models and guidance counsellors.
Our tutors support students and families for an intensive short-term period by studying during holidays or term time. Typically, this may range roughly from as little as a week, sometimes even a long weekend, or for as long as a month. During their stay with a family, tutors normally live in the family’s home or nearby accommodation.
During residential tuition, tutors aim to build a meaningful relationship and academic connection with your child. By providing the time and environment needed, school work can be taught in depth, allowing student and tutor to practice and revisit topics without the same pressure of time constraints sometimes felt in traditional hourly tuition.
We understand that long-term residential tutors need to be chosen carefully to meet the needs of any given family. The Education Hotel is experienced in working with families living all around the world, many of whom frequently travel as part of their lifestyles.
We have a selection of experienced tutors who are willing to travel and work around the world. These tutors understand the need for flexibility, often working around the activities that are part of your family’s schedule.
There are many advantages to Residential or World Schooling tutoring, including:
- No long gaps between lessons
- Each session can build seamlessly upon the previous one to accelerate progress
- Mentorship between tutor and student
- Time and space to respond to specialist academic needs
- Children gain a wider worldview than they would in school whilst also studying
- Easy re-integration into the school system afterwards, if that is an eventual goal
