Carfax, like Oxford itself, has a long history of providing highly personalized education. Just as the traditional tutorial system sustains the great universities, so too it underpins the one-to-one tuition offered here. Whilst innovations have been made in education and, especially, in technology, there is still no better way to meet a pupil’s specific needs and maximize their chances of success.
At Carfax, individual tuition enables pupils to progress through their course in the way that suits them best. With the undivided attention of their tutor, they can explore each subject in as much depth as they wish. If their abilities allow, they can move faster through a programme without having to wait for the rest of the class. Equally, if they encounter problems with any part of the course, their tutor is on hand to give them all the extra help they need.
This form of tuition permits extraordinary flexibility. While most pupils at Carfax follow the normal pattern of the academic year, course dates can be adjusted to meet pupils’ individual requirements: for example to accommodate commitments in sport or the performing arts. Pupils may begin courses mid-year, if need be, due to a family move from abroad, or an unexpected departure from their previous school. Those wishing to re-take exams after leaving school can also fit their preparation around plans they might have made for their Gap Year.
The following courses are available on the basis of individual tuition:
