Taking Private Tutors on Holiday

London-based private tutoring agency, Tutor House is offering a new service to tour operators, cruise lines and travel organizers. Tutor House will provide private tutors to accompany families on holiday in the UK or overseas and tutor children aged 11 – 18 in any GCSE and A Level subject, as well as provide Common Entrance preparation.

Available on a flexible basis, bookable by the day, Tutor House’s tutors provide up to five hours of tuition each day, combined with childcare, and tutors will travel with the family, or can fly in for a specific period, to provide the extra academic input.

Director of Tutor House and professional tutor, Alex Dyer said, “By offering this new service, families can now go on holiday out of season, or during term time, without having to worry that their children will fall behind at school.”

The service works equally well for families taking a villa holiday, a ski holiday or staying in a hotel, and it gives families the potential to travel any time of the year, reducing the stress of taking children out of school during term time.

Alex goes on to say, “Families can also optimize key revision periods, such as Easter and Christmas holidays, as well as offering tuition outside of congested exam and school periods, like summer, where children can really benefit from additional support before they begin the next school year.”

Tutor House employs the services of over 180 specialist tutors, offering a variety of disciplines, from PE to physics, tennis to IT, with specific tuition offered to international and UK students for Common Entrance and senior school examinations, GCSE and A levels.

How to revise for Classical Civilisation, a tutors perspective.

April 17, 2013

How to revise for Classical Civilisation, a tutors perspective

Here’re some ideas about how to do a revision for A-Levels.

Based on what I learnt doing Classical Civilisation (10 years now), the examination is designed to test three things:

1)Factual

Knowledege (35% of the marks): they should have a good range of

knowledge, particularly the keys facts associated with the areas they

have studied. Questions will usually ask to select relevant facts not just give a shopping list of everything they know about a subject.

Ex. What’s the responsibility and the symbol of the God Neptune? Answer: Sea and Trident.

2)

Understanding (30% of the marks): They should understand how different

aspects of each option relate to each other and also the various terms

that you find in each options. They should know why the people

behave the way they did in the context of their own society. Ex. Explain

how comfortable a Roman audience was when watching a play.

3)

Interpretation/Evaluation (analysis) (35% of the marks): They should

make observations about what the sources tell us and make judgements.

Ex. Do you think an Athenian boy’s education prepared him for later life?

The idea is that if you know your facts (Factual knowledge), and if you

understand their significance (Understanding), then you are in a

position to interpret it and evaluate (Evaluation).

I think that the foundation of a student’s success lies in his factual knowledge and

revision. When the student is revising, the trick is to be active. That

means not simply reading his books/ notes and hoping that it

will sink in, but actually doing something with the information. For

instance, one way could be ‘prioritising your knowledge’. For every

topics and sub topic, they should consider four key facts that

they think they should know. In other words, it’s one of the many ways

to organize knowledge. Ex. The site of Pompeii> Vesuvius nearby>

Bulding stone and Fertile soil.

In conclusion, I think there are many ways of organising knowledge so that it is not just in note form.

The more the student do, the most he will remember and the more he can

remember, the more she or he will have to discuss. The examination will not be asking for obscure pieces of knowledge. They will be asking for key facts.
