  • Flexibility and convenience – tutors and students have greater availability with no need to travel.
  • Explore creative and effective ways of learning with online whiteboards, videos and games.

  • Help and support at boarding school.

In-Person Tuition

Research and experience has shown the value of one-to-one tuition. This approach focuses on a student’s individual needs, inspiring and motivating them to learn. In-person tuition allows a tutor and student to work together: building confidence, tailoring support and offering new ways to study.

Face to face tutors engage students with science experiments, board games and physical activity. We can present knowledge in a different way than in the classroom. Face to face tutoring often allows whole families to have access to our tutors. This enables, for example, one student preparing for upcoming GCSE’s to be followed by a sibling who needs help with reading practice. Our students love seeing their tutor each week and often ask to see them more than once.

Residential Tuition

The reasons for residential tuition are varied. Sometimes extra support is needed when important exams are imminent. Or perhaps traditional schooling may not be suited to a family’s lifestyle.

Residential tuition allows for a tutor and student to take advantage of family holidays, long weekends or breaks within the school year to develop additional knowledge outside of the curriculum.

Our tutors have worked with children for several years and have extensive experience in residential tutoring. The U.K. office offer admin support so that tutors can focus on your child and their specialised programme. Education Hotel tutors don’t just act as a teacher to your child – whilst with you they act as mentors, role models and guidance counsellors.

Mentors work closely with students to ensure they are fully supported in every aspect of their life. Our programme helps young people grow in their confidence, achieve higher academic standards and teaches them how to make decisions independently.

We choose mentors who are strong role models instilling motivation in young people and offering guidance for students to achieve their ambitions.

Mentors are nurturing and positive individuals. They can support students in the following areas:

  • Creating personal and educational goals.
  • Balancing studies with extracurricular activities.
  • Homework support.
  • Developing skills to be an independent learner.
  • Assisting with contact between their school and families.
  • Guiding the student towards the next step of their journey.
