From the eighteenth through the early twentieth centuries, home education (home schooling) by tutors and governesses in Russia was a customary form of schooling for an overwhelming majority of members of the nobility. Social and political transformations of the twentieth century led to substantial changes as the state got actively involved with the aim of restricting or prohibiting home education, but now home education is reemerging as part of a search for new forms of educational experience in Russia.
