Support for Homeschooling
Success in Homeschooling

Success in homeschooling is found in the same way as success in school. The single most significant factor determining the quality of education a student receives is the quality of teaching. It requires a teacher to have a broad and good knowledge of subject content and curriculum, access to high-quality teaching and learning resources and for the teacher to have lots of enthusiasm, energy, patience and resilience.

Make a Plan and Create a Routine

Get hold of a copy of your child's curriculum (or scheme of work) that they are following and make an outline plan, at least for the next month. Your child's teacher or school should be able to provide you with this. Children of all ages need routine. You must provide a structure and shape to their day and week. Draw up a weekly timetable for them (and you) and stick a copy on the fridge door. Of course, this timetable does not have to replicate their usual school timings and can be much more suited to their particular needs and age. This routine and timetable will also likely evolve over the next few weeks and months, as you and your child learn what works best.

How Many Hours Each Day?

Children typically have about 5 hours of direct teaching each weekday at school, but one-to-one homeschool teaching is a much more efficient process, so you do not need to plan for 5 hours of teaching each day. Our experience would suggest Early Years Foundation Stage should be 1.5 hours of planned activity each weekday: Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) about 2 hours: Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to 6) about 2 hours: Key Stage 3 (Years 7 to 9) about 2.5 hours: Key Stage 4 (Year 10 and 11) about 2.5 hours: Key Stage 5 (Years 12 and 13) about 3 hours. It is important that your child works independently, reading or writing on their own, for a period each day. For younger children this may just be for 10 to 20 minutes; for older children this may be for an hour or so. Create a still point in each day for this, with quietness to encourage them to focus.

Reward and Refresh

Perhaps most important through all is to make this experience as enjoyable as possible. There are a number of benefits to homeschooling, which you will experience. It will give you the opportunity to create a tailor-made education; one that suits the learning needs of your child. One-to-one teaching is more efficient, so your child will make much more progress with much less teaching time. This allows much more light and space in the week for you to do other things. The school day and week is flexible and will provide a much better balance between work and play. There are no school runs nor limitations on school holidays. Lessons can start and finish at times more palatable for teenagers or busy households. You also have a choice about what, when and how your child learns.

Tuition with a qualified Homeschool teacher at your home in Buckingham costs from £46 ph. Online tuition with a qualified Homeschool teacher costs from £40 ph. Create your own small tuition group and Homeschool tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced Homeschool teachers in Buckingham, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a Homeschool tutor coming to your home in Buckingham to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the Homeschool tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the Homeschool tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the Homeschool tutor is required to travel to your home, in Buckingham. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your Homeschool tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your Homeschool tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of Homeschool tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group Homeschool tuition in Buckingham depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
