Contact Blue Kite founder Madelaine Berlin who can guide you on this decision from both a personal and professional point of view having been a residential tutor herself.
In some cases it is more suitable for families to request the services of a full-time tutor for one or more of their children. If you are thinking of the best way to avoid gaps in your child’s education, support and extend them measurably from home, are planning on or have recently returned from travels and would like to consider a tutor for school holiday learning or home schooling/tutoring, then a residential tutor is just what you are looking for.
Pupils and families relocating from abroad, or other areas of the UK, will often seek advice on how to best integrate and prepare their children for Sussex’s fantastic independent schools…a residential tutor is a lifeline in helping parents and children set themselves up for a great start, whatever time of the year. We know the area very well and we know how to use the people, places and facilities of our locality to enhance pupil learning and integration.
A great residential tutor will have vast subject knowledge, be highly organised, wonderfully creative, empathetic, good humoured and excellent at building relationships that last. Residential tuition produces remarkable results; children are able to make excellent progress and their confidence soars. Parents and pupils will often talk of the transformative effect of residential tuition as pupils can be immersed in a supportive learning environment that plays to their learning styles and strengths.
