Can a 60-minute lesson be split into two 30-minute lessons, for two different children?
Absolutely. The charge for each session is based on the key stage of the child. So for 30 minutes, it will be half of the hourly charge, for each child. The only thing I would say about this, is to be realistic about what can be achieved in 30 minutes - it really does whizz by!
Can my two children be in the same tutoring session?
Two children can definitely share the same tutoring session but they must be in the same key stage at school, and must allow each other to work independently.
Where do tuition sessions take place?
Tuition can take place over email, online, or in face-to-face sessions from Emma’s tuition room, based at her home in Water Stratford, Buckinghamshire. Should you wish to have online sessions, your child will need access to a fully-charged smartphone and tablet for their lessons, as well as the use of a stylus. There is no need to download any apps or install any programmes for online tuition.
Should I reserve a space early for 11+ tuition?
I would strongly advise this. I already have children on my waiting list for 11+ tuition in 2023! I offer a bespoke tutoring package for the 11+, which is popular amongst my clients. Please contact me to find out more.
How has COVID-19 changed your tuition offering?
COVID-19 meant that I transitioned to an online-only way of working, and have been working in this way for the past year. I anticipate working online-only until October 2022, which is when I hope to return to face-to-face, for those clients that prefer this way of working; online will still remain an option. Both options have their benefits - online tuition saves parents dropping off/collecting/waiting for their children, and also requires parents to purchase less tuition resources, whereas face-to-face can be more beneficial for those children who struggle, or who have short attention spans. There really is no ‘better’ option; it is entirely dependent on your child and the way in which they will learn best.
