Hi all ( mainly just complaining) I have experience of 3 different students who have asked for fortnightly tuition to which I agreed and all three times I have regreted it. First time I was very new to tuition and agreed to teach a girl from a private school on a Sunday once a fortnight in their term-time sometimes and 10 am and sometimes at 7pm depending on when her sports matches took place! Nightmare, I ended up teaching her around 15 times a year not worth the time. Second time was another girl from the same private school and the parents kept complaining that her results weren't improving so I explained that anything she learnt on the 10 school days between our lessons I wouldn't be able to go over before the tests so they started coming weekly and I have had no problems since! Third time I don't know why I agreed to this but a year 6 student finished her SATs and did very well (taught her weekly no problems). I asked if they wanted to continue tuition and her dad said we were thinking of bringing her fortnightly. I should have said no on the spot, since then they have caused me nothing but trouble. I have since turned down a fortnightly job so apparently 3 times bitten fourth time shy. At least I have learnt. Genuinely I would love to hear if any other tutors have successfully taught a student fortnightly ? Maybe I am just cursed!
