How many hours of study should my child be doing whilst their school is closed?
Each individual is different and also will have an optimal learning capacity and routine. Generally, it is recommended that the following be observed;
2-3 hours for the early years
3-4 hours for mid-school
5-8 hours for advanced education
The above is a guide only – it is wise to familiarise yourself with the signs of stress and tiredness to devise calendars and mini work-breaks or activities to monitor this. Fleet Tutors have experienced private tutors who are able to plan and work with you to maximise your child’s learning potential whilst ensuring they continue to enjoy and progress through the key stages.
The Fleet Tutors Online Classroom is delivered by a carefully selected and dedicated Fleet Tutor, this is a much more focussed and individualised learning solution than that typically afforded via eLearning platforms.
