Since opening in 2012, Carfax Private Tutors has provided tuition to many families and individuals in Baku looking to improve their language skills, or to increase their understanding of specific academic subjects.
Tuition can take place in a client’s home, place of business, or at the Carfax office, located on Mikayil Mushfig Street, Baku. Services are provided throughout Azerbaijan, and the wider Caspian region.
School pupils may receive after-school academic support in all subjects - English, Maths, French, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, History, Geography, and many more, all from experienced tutors.
Exam preparation services are very popular with pupils of all ages and cover a wide range: (I)GCSE, A level, IB, TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, GMAT, GRE. Intensive revision sessions can be organized for pupils during their holiday break.
Working professionals who would like language tuition are also provided for. Tuition can be organised during the working day, to fit around existing commitments. With Carfax’s flexible approach to timetabling, the minimum amount of disruption is caused, and companies benefit from the new skills their employees gain. Should any professionals be looking to enter MBA programmes, Carfax can offer expert tuition for GMAT exams.
Carfax Private Tutors operates open all year long. During the holidays, specialist revision or preparatory courses can be organised. Should families wish to travel overseas, tutors can be organised to help provide continuity of study and ensure the minimum of disruption.
Individual tuition has a number of advantages. Firstly, it allows each pupil to progress through a course at the pace and in the manner which best suits them. Each course is bespoke to the pupil, and tutors are encouraged to allow for a pupils’ learning style when devising their schemes of work. If their abilities allow, pupils can move faster through a programme without the need to wait for others, and with the undivided attention of their tutor can explore each subject in as much depth as their interest dictates. Pupils who are having difficulty with any part of their course find that their tutor is able to give them as much support and time as is necessary to overcome any difficulties.
In addition, individual tuition allows for infinite flexibility in terms of the intensity and duration of courses. Each course at Carfax is designed specifically for each pupil. The term dates and duration of vacations are also set individually. Some pupils follow the normal pattern of the academic year. Others, whether because of family travel plans or involvement in sports or the performing arts, have their periods of study adjusted to fit their requirements. It is fairly common for pupils to begin their studies at Carfax in the middle of the academic year either because of a move from abroad or because of an unexpected departure from school. Some pupils come to re-take examinations after leaving school in order to strengthen their position when applying to universities.
Finally, individual tuition allows school and university pupils to supplement current work in a targeted fashion. It has become an increasingly popular method of intensive preparation and revision for various examinations during holidays and for additional instruction outside normal school hours and on weekends.
