The new service allows you to revise and learn maths, English, languages or any other subject of your choice whilst you are fast asleep. The tutoring sessions will involve tutors explain the learning material to students while they are awake, then repeat the information to the individual as they sleep, so they can reactivate memories and revise the information they have just learnt.

You can have sleep tutor sessions at any time of the day or night, depending on your needs, either remotely through online channels or in person. In-person sleep tuition is expected to cost £100 an hour due to the anti-social hours associated with the service, and remote sleep tuition £50 an hour.

We decided to launch this unusual service after recent research revealed that people retain more information when asleep and that ‘memories are reactivated in the brain during sleep’

The research involved participants being taught a series of associations between words and pictures. After learning the basic associations, some participants took a 90-minute nap whilst the words were replayed to them during their sleep, whereas others stayed awake with no reactivation. Following the testing, researchers discovered that the participants who were presented with the words in their sleep recalled the information better than those who didn’t sleep.

After learning about this, we decided to create a service to expand on these finding and use it help students increase their memory retention during exam season.

Alex Dyer, founder of Tutor House said,

“With the amount of studying students juggle these days, it’s hard to imagine how they find time to work on every subject. So, once we heard about these new findings, we thought it would be a great service to launch onsite. We will be trialling the service for the next six months and dependent on its popularity we hope to make it a permanent category on Tutor House.

“This is something that has come up in discussion with both tutors and students in the past on Tutor House and we’re hoping that by offering ‘sleep’ tuition as a new service, it will help more individuals learn in a time-sensitive and effective way. If you are interested please sign up, we are very excited to see how this can help!”
