What is Homeschooling?
Homeschooling, an ever-evolving trend in the education landscape, serves as a flexible alternative to traditional schooling. This parent-led education model is where families opt for a personalised educational route right at home, sidestepping conventional classroom settings.
Distinguished by its adaptability, homeschooling empowers parents to design customised online and/or in-person courses tailored to their child's unique needs. It allows for a bespoke curriculum and individualised learning pace. This learning model ensures a departure from the standardised approach, championing tailored educational experiences. It's particularly beneficial when aiming to address specific educational needs (SENs), which may get overshadowed in mainstream classrooms.
Moreover, as many families diving into homeschooling have discovered, this approach strengthens parent-child relationships, fosters explorative learning, and contributes to well-rounded development. Nowadays, homeschooling has transformed from a mere educational choice to a comprehensive lifestyle choice, offering a balance of academic rigour and personal growth.
Why hire a homeschooling tutor?
Opting to engage an expert homeschooling tutor presents an invaluable opportunity for parents to meld the flexibility inherent to home education with the expertise of a qualified teaching professional. It’s a strategic move observed by many who tread the homeschooling path, to ensure their children receive an enriched learning experience that is as flexible as it is comprehensive.
Hiring a tutor under the homeschooling umbrella is a dynamic choice that empowers parents with the agency to select a dedicated tutor for each subject area if that aligns with their preferences. This practice amplifies the possibility of personalised learning, offering a one-to-one educational environment where your child can truly thrive with personalised attention and instruction tailored to their unique learning needs and pace.
In the diverse landscape of homeschooling, parents have the latitude to either fully steer the educational wheel or share the driving seat. Some might wish to be the sole educators, immersing in a hands-on teaching experience, while others might lean towards delegation. For those in the latter category, Tutor House extends its resources, providing access to a cadre of experienced homeschooling tutors. These professionals are not just versed in their respective fields but are also adept at assuming varied levels of instructional roles, based on your comfort and expectations. Whether you envision them leading specific subjects or taking a more overarching role in your child's education, these tutors are equipped to adapt, facilitating a learning environment that resonates with your child’s needs while aligning with your educational philosophy and goals.
In essence, the decision to hire a homeschooling tutor isn't merely about outsourcing education; it's about crafting a collaborative, flexible, and highly personalised learning journey designed with your child's success at its core.

Reviews from Homeschoolers
“School is not always an easy place for teenagers. Tutor House proved a very positive alternative for our 16 year old. Having lost interest in school and learning we enrolled him with Tutor House for his GCSE year. His level of interest, commitment and confidence greatly improved thanks to the tutors and he discovered that he was capable of so much more than he ever imagined. Tutor House have wonderful staff. They are friendly, helpful and flexible. We are so grateful to have had their support. Our thanks go to everyone involved.”

“Tutor House not only provided for our daughter a way forward at a difficult time, but a transformational experience. Over two years two fine tutors home-schooled our daughter in English Literature and Politics, which enabled her to complete her qualifications and for which she received an A* in both subjects.
This was not an easy assignment. Our daughter suffers from a rare and complicated medical condition which had led to her being removed from school entirely. During this period she was frequently ill and her otherwise productive sessions were interrupted as a consequence.”
- Rafael S, Dad, On Mars 10
Excellent class. The teacher makes sure students engage in a in-depth discussion of the novel they are working on. My daughter enjoys this setup a lot! The teacher is very patient and takes time to make sure that she understands. Overall I think this is great and I absolutely recommend it.
