Homeschooling is a type of education where a parent or caregiver takes on the teacher role and provides education to children at home rather than sending them to a traditional school. Homeschooling can be done for various reasons, including religious beliefs, dissatisfaction with the school system, or a desire for a more personalised education.
In homeschooling, the parent or caregiver is responsible for creating a curriculum and teaching the subject matter to the child. This can involve using textbooks, online resources, or a combination of both. Many homeschooling families also employ a tutor or tutors to provide some specialist teaching and support. The curriculum can be tailored to the child's needs and learning style, including English, maths, science, history, language arts, and more.
Homeschooling parents can choose to follow a structured curriculum or take a more relaxed, unschooling approach where the child leads the learning process. Homeschooling families may also participate in tuition programs or use local resources such as museums, libraries, and community organisations to enhance their child's education.
Because we only ever work with real UK teachers you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. We vet all 20,000+ tutors, and they are all DBS checked.
Team up with other families to create a small tuition group at your home or online. Children should be of similar ages, abilities and ambitions. The tuition fee will automatically be divided equally among your group. Learn more
We're almost certain you will be happy with your choice of teacher, but if the first lesson is not a success, for whatever reason, you will not be charged for the lesson and we will immediately look to find you an alternative teacher.
