Thank you Subbu-ji.  

Does Sri.Jayendra Swamiji personally take classes to Sri.Vijayendra Swamiji like Sri.Bharati Tirtha Swamiji to Vidhusekhara Ji?  I am not aware of Kanchi mutt.

Yes. Br.Sri. VR Ramachandra Sastry who is the father of VR Gowrishankar, used to teach tarka to Abhinava Vidya Tirtha Swamiji. He was also Ph.D guide to my sanskrit teacher who evaluated the doctoral thesis work in sanskrit. The Ph.D thesis was 'Atma-darshanam'.

 Vidwat sabhā-s in Kanchi Mutt do
 take place even now. Many scholars who come to Sringeri for
 the Ganapati Vakyartha sadas go to Kanchi too. During
 Chaturmasya, MM Sri Krishnamurthi Sastrigal of Chennai goes
 to Kanchi every day to conduct shāstra pātham. 
 Even in Sringeri, there
 has been the case of MM Sri Ramachandra Sastry teaching
 Tarka, etc. to Jagadguru Sri Abhinava Vidytirtha Swamiji
 soon after his sannyasa. Jagadguru Sri Chandrashekhara
 Bharati Swamiji was taught by scholars such as Vidwan Sri
 Virupaksha Sastry.

 Just expressing a small doubt.  May be, off the topic !
 I am aware that in Sringeri, the mahasannidhanam takes
 personal care in prasthAna-traya adhyayana &
 to His successor as well as to deserved disciples.  His
 Holiness Bharati Tirtha Swamiji Himself is a great
 in tarka shAstra and takes delight in reading shAstras that
 are prescribed for highly advanced sadhakas.
 Swamiji mastered both purva & uttara mimAmsa in no
 time.  Now, His Holiness is nurturing the successor
 and taking personal care in terms of anushtana, mantra japa
 and shAstra adhyayana.
 Is the similar thing observed in Kanchi Mutt & other
 AmnAya mutts like Puri & Dwaraka? Rarely I see acharyas
 Kanchi & Dwaraka engaging in shAstra chintana and
 prasthAna-traya-bhAsya chintana.  I have never seen
 Sri.Jayendra Swamiji teaching personally the shAstrAs to
 Bala Swamiji (or is it done privately in serene
 My vedic & sanskrit teacher used to say that
 Mahaperiyaval used to take personal care to deserved
 and used to take classes on prasthAna-traya but somehow this
 sort of seriousness is lacking among the present ones.
 Kanchi (aka Kumbakonam) mutt used to conduct 'advaita
 sabha' when stalwarts of advaita siddhAnta used to
 Similarly, with Swarupananda Ji of Dwaraka.  They are
 tilted more towards pravrutti & laukika ways rather
 prasthAna-traya-bhAsya adhyayana & adhyApana.
 As far as I know, Sringeri is the crest-jewel among the
 among the mutts that is committed to adhyayana &
 of prasthAna-traya.  Other ashrams like Arsha Vidya Trust,
 Chinmaya Mission, Kailash Ashrama, Dakshinamurti Mutt
 are also teaching the Sankara literature to the sadhaks.
 Just thinking aloud !
