We are experienced in providing home schooling services to parents both online and offline, and offer homeschooling services from one month through to a year or more. There are a number of scenarios where it can make sense to homeschool a child. When homeschooling a child, it is of the utmost importance that the right tutor or tutors is / are put in place. That is why we take the time to get to know the family and child first, usually meeting in person. By taking the time to understand the reasons for homeschooling plus any specific aims such as preparing a student for exams, school entrance or supporting the child through a transition to a new school or country, we are able to match the child with the most appropriate tutor and produce a timetable to ensure that homeschooling is effective. For families who are seeking homeschooling services to support the transition of their child to a new school, our tutor works alongside our education consultancy team, advising parents on school entry, liaising with school staff and tailoring academic preparation to the new school.
Meeting and assessment of the child:
We take the time to get to know your family, meeting with both parents and child so that we are properly informed and well positioned to source the right tutor. We often recommend an academic assessment of the child, which usually includes testing maths and English, as well as conducting an interview. The results of this test help us to formulate the optimal academic plan. It’s a time for us to understand the reasons why homeschooling is the preferred choice and to set down clear goals to work towards. We appreciate that the tutor must not only be right on an academic and personal level.
Creation of an academic plan:
We produce a unique academic schedule with key milestones, tailored completely to the student and their abilities and needs, calculating the appropriate number of hours per subject per week so that the family and student can achieve their goals. While one of the key benefits of being homeschooled is that learning can be far more flexible, we feel it is important to provide a degree of structure for the child’s learning.
Provision of a holistic education:
Home schooling necessitates that students do not need to restrict themselves to the school curriculum. It offers a fantastic opportunity to bring learning to life: cultural trips to museums, art galleries or the theatre, and even trips abroad to support the learning of a new language. Home schooling can be a truly exciting alternative for children.
