Do you need to be isolated for evocation?

I live in a two bedroom apartment w/ my boyfriend. I want to start practicing magic, such as evocation, some basic spells, etc…However, my boyfriend just lost his job and is home all the time.
If I went in another room and shut the door could I still practice rituals while he is here?

You can astrally seal a room off from the rest of the house, and that will definitely help, but Ive also found it very beneficial to wait until others go to sleep as well. Less mental transmissions floating around the area, leaving you with a “cleaner slate” to work with, so to speak
