Can a one hour tuition session be split into two half hour sessions, for two different children?
Absolutely. This is no problem whatsoever. The charge for each session is based on the key stage that the child is in at school, so for half hour, it will be half of the hourly charge. However, one thing to bear in mind is that the total tuition time must be a minimum of one hour in total, e.g. a one hour session and then a half hour session afterwards or two half hour sessions, one after the other.
Can my two children be in the same one hour tutoring session?
Two children can definitely share the same tutoring session but they must be no more than a year apart in age, e.g. one child in year seven and one in year eight, and in the same key stage at school. The reason for this is that pupils can then complete similar work, which can be made easier or more difficult depending on their ability, to ensure personalised learning can still take place. The cost of a one hour joint session is £35 (KS1 to KS3).
Where do tuition sessions take place?
Most parents prefer tuition sessions to take place in their own houses. Chloe, Elle and Jan all offer tuition based in the tutee's home. However, Emma works solely from her home in Thornborough (near Buckingham). She is more than happy for parents to sit in on the session, or many parents choose to go into Buckingham - which is just two miles away - while they wait for their child.
I can see that you're currently fully booked but I'd really like you to tutor my child. Is this possible?
Of course! When a session becomes available, it generally gets booked up quite quickly and doesn't then become available again for quite some time. As people message most days with their tuition requests, a waiting list is operated.
