What is homeschool tutoring?
Homeschooling and employing homeschool tutors is an alternative to a mainstream school education, in which students are taught outside the traditional classroom environment.
Our highly experienced homeschool tutors work with parents to devise a bespoke learning plan, designed to maximise children’s potential – both academically and beyond. We can also answer practical questions about the national curriculum, public assessments and educational regulations.
Tuition can take place at home or online – or a combination of the two – and is suitable for children of all ages, from primary school to Sixth Form. For some families children attend school part time and supplement learning through part time homeschooling.
Our approach to homeschool tutoring
Parents choose homeschooling for a variety of reasons and it doesn’t have to come in one form. Whether you would like a homeschool tutor on a full-time basis – or you simply need to fill a gap in your child’s schooling— we are here to help.
Our tutors will adapt to the needs of your family and, depending on your requirements, we can provide:
- live-in homeschooling tutors
- full time homeschooling tutors
- after-school tutors to help with homework
- tutor nannies, who can assist with the school run, after school snacks and homework help
- residential tutors for school holidays
- general study skills support
Our team has a wealth of experience preparing students for GCSE and A Level assessments, as well as school entrance exams 7+, 11+, and 13+.
Our homeschool tutors
Our tutors are highly qualified with several years of professional teaching experience. Ranging from full-time homeschoolers to teachers from leading private schools, they are committed to helping pupils excel across the subject spectrum.
Depending on the stage of your child’s academic career, we can match you with subject specialists or with generalist tutors used to teaching younger pupils. Whatever their age, students will cover all the topics they would in a school classroom – and, in many case, much more. Lessons are carefully designed to be interactive and engaging, and children are free to ask questions and explore their interests in a distraction-free setting.
Academic development is not everything, however. Our tutors nurture happy, well-rounded pupils and strive to provide a dynamic and broad education – be it in the form of an educational day-trip, or a science experiment in the garden.
Every member of our homeschooling team was subject to a rigorous recruitment process. Candidates applying to become a tutor with us must provide proof of their qualifications, attend a face-to-face interview, and possess a DBS certificate. Only the very best succeed.
Is using a homeschool tutor right for your child?
Parents educate their children at home for a variety of reasons: missed lessons, illness, special learning needs, expulsion, unhappiness at school, moving to the UK from abroad – the list goes on. While homeschooling does not suit all families, it has an impressive array of advantages. Children enjoy exceptional teaching, tailored support, a distraction-free learning environment, and are free to pursue their own passions and interests.
Whether you are seeking a long-term arrangement or quick teaching solution, our tutors are here to help your child flourish, and work closely with parents to give pupils the best possible start in life.
As a result of the Covid-19, children across the country have missed out on several months of schooling. Homeschooling to catch up on lost curriculum time could be an option if you are concerned your child’s education has suffered during the pandemic.
