Benefits of Homeschooling
Homeschooling can be a hugely beneficial step for many students. Students come to us as they are out of school for a variety of reasons, a few examples being; health related, unhappiness at current school, logistical reasons, extra-curricular activities that involve a lot of contact time or waiting for a school place.
A few of the benefits that homeschooling can provide:
- A chance to have 1:1 support which allows the child to excel in their chosen subjects as the lessons can go at their own pace.
- A chance to refresh: some students need some time out from traditional schooling for example if they are recovering from an illness or some time out from formal education. Homeschooling gives them some room to breathe and catch up on their studies.
- A chance to specialise and focus on the subjects that are of particular interest to the student.
- A chance to explore activities and interests outside of school work and to give the appropriate amount of time for these.
"In my experience, homeschooling has been an amazing tool to bridge the gap between any schooling issues and getting students back into school.
There are many reasons why a students education might be behind where it should be. Changing schools internationally can leave gaps that might get missed. Large chunks of school can be missed for health reasons. Homeschooling can offer a completely personalised path back into the system. Courses can be designed from scratch for every individual student to specifically deal with their unique problem areas. Working one-on-one with talented tutors can quickly rebuild any lost confidence and spark passion for subjects that students previously might have loathed!
Homeschooling also offers the freedom to explore subjects in a much more flexible way, spending time diving deep into interesting areas that otherwise might be skipped over."
