Tutoring is a main feature in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

OverviewEdit

Tutoring allows the player to teach the students of their house in various subjects. These combine three different methods to teach the students. These provide useful experience in order to properly prepare the students to take Certification Exams, which gives units classes to Class Change into to increase their effectiveness in combat.

Private TutoringEdit

Byleth can choose to directly improve a unit's subject of study through one-on-one lessons. Byleth can only tutor three students per week, but can increase this as their Professor Rank increases.

They can give multiple sessions depending on the unit's motivation and a unit must have at least 25 Motivation to do personal tutoring and can have maximum of 100 at the start of a session. Students gain motivation through multiple methods:

  • Byleth is the MVP of a battle - All units in roster gains 25 Motivation
  • Other unit is the MVP of a battle - Unit gains 100 Motivation
  • Students are given their free day off to rest - All units gain 50 Motivation
  • Unit gains a Support rank with Byleth - Units gains 100 Motivation
  • Lost item returned to owner - Unit gains 50 Motivation
  • Gift is given to student - Unit gains 25 Motivation if they like the gift, 50 if they love it, 0 if they dislike it.
  • Dining Hall Meal - Student gains 100 Motivation if they love the meal, 25 if they like the meal, 0 if they dislike the meal.
  • Praise/Critique/Console - Byleth chooses to praise an ally after they receive perfect tutoring or critique/console an ally if they have a bad tutoring session.

For each personal Tutoring session, a unit can have a multitude of results for the session, affecting how much subject experience they gain. This is affected by their subject affinity, the monthly subject boost for certain subjects, and the current condition of some statues in the Monastery. The four results are:

  • Good - Unit gains 1x subject experience.
  • Great - Unit gains 1.5x subject experience.
  • Perfect - Unit gains 2x subject experience. Can Praise to gain 25 motivation.
  • Bad - Unit gains no subject experience. Can be Consoled or Critiqued in order to recover 25 motivation.

Results are determined by the character's subject affinity, the select subjects that are boosted each month, and the current restoration state of the Saint Statues.

CounselingEdit

Occasionally, a student may ask Byleth for some advice. Byleth can give them some counseling with their issue. Depending on their answer, the student will gain motivation and will award Professor Points.

GoalsEdit

Goal are automatic subject experience that occur each week. Every character has a preset starting goal tailored to two of their subject affinities. Byleth can choose to either stick to their default goals, allow the students to suggest their own future goals, or create a custom goal for the students. Goals can either be two subjects that equally gain experience or one subject that grows exponentially better. The subject experience is fixed and will occur automatically every Friday.

Suggested GoalsEdit

Tutoring/Goals

Students may occasionally suggest their own goals, usually tailored to their strengths, which Byleth may accept and immediately goes into effect, but can still be swapped in and out as the player pleases.

ProjectsEdit

Projects are another automatic lesson that improves Riding, Heavy Armor, and Flying subject experience. Byleth chooses two students to participate in one of the three special unit areas and will be completed on that Friday. The two students gain subject experience, gain support points with each other if possible, additional funds for the House, and extra items. The better the results of the Project, the better rewards are given.

Subject AffinityEdit

Every character has a unique set of subjects that they have affinity for. Characters may be strong in one subject, but weak in another. Byleth can choose to focus on tutoring the characters in certain subjects to play on their strengths. The more affinity they have towards a subject, the more likely they are to have better results. Likewise a character with a subject weakness are more likely to have poor results. Subject strengths are highlighted with blue, upward pointing chevrons while subject weaknesses are highlighted with red, downward pointing chevrons.

Most characters however, have a Budding Talent (才能開花 Sainō Kaika), a subject in which they have untapped potential in and when developed will turn that subject into a Strength. This stat is highlighted by three empty stars and Byleth must provide a specific number of Private Tutoring lessons in order to fill in the three stars, or in the case with Byleth and their Budding Talent in Faith, have Byleth undergo Faculty Training in Faith with a appropriate Monastery staff member. Once all three stars have been filled, their previously untapped potential talent in the subject is unleashed and it becomes a strength. A character who has unlocked their Budding Talent will also gain a special skill.

Most Budding Talents are initially neutral growths, however one student from each House (Dorothea, Felix, and Lysithea) have Budding Talents that are initially Subject Weaknesses. They will struggle in their initial tutoring, but like a neutral starting Budding Talent, this will reverse into a Strength when unlocked.
