Exam revision normally takes place during school holidays, when there is need for intensive revision and practice with past papers in exam conditions.
Support tuition takes place regularly over the year. It is intended for students who need to consolidate what it is covered in their schools or need help with homework or school projects.
The UK Department for Education recognizes that “individual tuition has always been the preferred method of additional support for pupils not achieving their potential”.
One-to-one tuition is based on the Oxbridge tutorial system, which is more rigorous than standard school lessons. During each session students receive personalised attention and can participate actively, concentrating on their work.
