Many Parents choose to home school their children, we provide the often-essential home school tuition support families need, and the flexibility it provides can allow students to mix their hobbies and family life to their requirements. HB Tutoring are able to put our students forward as external candidates and share our planning structure with local authorities to ensure a smooth and successful service.
Benefits of home schooling tuition
There are many benefits to using professional home tuition for your home-schooling needs.
Within a school setting the teacher is only able to offer a student very limited 1-1 assistance with studies, however a tutored home-schooled child is able to access the curriculum and progress with their education when they are ready to move forwards with it, 100% dedicated to their needs. HB Tutoring tutors are extremely flexible and efficient, benefiting students by not being required to adhere to school timings etc
A student who is home schooled is less likely to have distractions around them ensuring that they can fully focus on their studies.
Our tutors will quickly asses the current achievement, potential and learning style of your child and will therefore be able to adapt their teaching technique to this.
HB Tutoring can provide a greater high level academic challenge for your child. This can enthuse and invigorate learning for greater enjoyment of a particular subject, which can then also affect other areas of their educational learning.
Our tutors can offer academic support to your child, should they have missed out on some of their learning, this may be through illness, absence, a lack of understanding at school… or a lack of effort. A short, direct and intensive course of planned lessons can have a profound impact on your child’s performance.=
HB Tutoring can help develop your child’s confidence in a subject. The more confident a child feels with their schoolwork, the more they are able to progress their skills and knowledge.
Our home tutors can help your child develop the right exam technique, so that they are able to perform to their full potential in an exam situation. Frequently children require a lot of practice doing trial exam papers, with a tutor alongside helping them to be precise and concise, to spot the traps that are set, to organise their timings, …
If your child is shy then often they will not ask questions within the classroom setting. With one-on-one tuition teaching, your child will feel more able to ask questions when they are unsure of a concept or have difficulties in a subject area.
If your child is struggling with homework from school, HB Tutoring can provide support to help them with this. Maybe your child is not receiving enough homework from school to consolidate their learning, the tutor can also provide this.
Regular lessons with a HB Tutoring will help a disorganized child begin to focus on their work, with the responsibility that they will have to be ready for the next lesson. Once momentum builds, your child will begin to feel less anxious and more enjoyment, as they begin to sense that they are making progress with their studies.
Qualified Teachers Providing High Quality Home Tuition
Parents are encouraged to sit in on some of the home tuition, if they wish to, this will enable them to watch the tutor at work, and to pick up some of their strategies and skills, which they can also then use to consolidate their child’s learning, when the tutor is not there.
With many years of experience in teaching children on a one-to-one basis, HB Tutoring know that children whom begin home tuition regularly make remarkable progress in only a few weeks. Ability, self-belief, confidence, enjoyment … all begin to take root and grow quickly!
The wider benefits of home schooling
HB Tutoring home tuition programs can work around any work rotas/shifts, You can go on holiday when you want – no massive hike in expense when school holidays come round – and extend holidays at whim. You never have to count down (with glee or dread) thinking “X more days until the summer holidays are over”… as I am doing now.
No school runs
Can I just repeat that? No school runs. This means bedtimes and get-up times to suit and, more crucially, at a more adolescent-friendly time for teenagers whose biological clocks shift at the start of puberty.
This is probably the main reason home education is so different from school. We all learn more effectively, when it’s more fun, if we can learn about the things which interest us, and in a way which we prefer to learn we like. You can also go at the child’s pace, rather than the child having to go at the class’s pace.
Write your own timetable
You don’t need to follow a school day. This means you can be led by your child, which means more efficient learning. If your child is particularly interested in something after seeing a film or reading a book, you can learn about that, which will lead into lots of other avenues. If your child is more receptive from 3pm to 6pm, that’s when you can target lessons.
You will need to follow the curriculum if you intend to put your child in for GCSEs or A-levels (you can apply privately to sit them as an external candidate). But that also means your children haven’t sat lots of other largely pointless exams by the age of 15.
Benefits of one to one
Because one-to-one teaching, (or one to two or three if you have more than one child), is so effective, you can pack a lot in. Some home schoolers say they get a day’s worth of learning in within two hours. The rest of the time can be spent at a more leisurely pace.
Children are far less afraid to ask a parent about anything they don’t understand, than putting a hand up in front of a whole classroom. Be aware though, that if your children are of vastly different ages, this can be a challenge.
If your child really struggles with certain subjects, if they have “uneven skills” as one home-schooling parent put it, but excels at others, you can structure their learning accordingly, which helps to boost their confidence.
Best of both worlds
If you start off with home education, you can, as lots of parents do, return your child into the school system later. Some parents feel that children start school too young, so they home educate until secondary school level and then send their children to school. You can also consider ‘flex-school’, (which is part-time schooling and home education), but this is up to the discretion of the headteacher.
There is no legal imperative to send your child to school in this country, but you do need to provide an education for your child. You can home educate from the start, but if you decide to do it later, once they have been at school, you must write to the headteacher to de-register them. It is then up to the school to notify the relevant local authority. Education authorities may get involved to a greater or lesser degree.
The social aspect of home education is often mentioned as a drawback. However, whilst this is a valid concern you can and should join local groups where you meet other families who are in the same situation. In some areas, this works well, with parents sharing skills to teach children.
We can provide home tuition near you anywhere in the UK, with a wide range of support on home tuition in Birmingham for example.
