How to Homeschool
Frequently asked questions about how to homeschool.
- Why do people choose home schooling?
The most common reasons for choosing to homeschool, sadly, bullying and concern that modern schools lack moral structure. Such students tend to mature as confident, knowledgeable adults having taken the option of home schooling.
- Is homeschooling legal?
We are often asked this when people ask us about how to homeschool. Many parents chose home schooling over the state-school system. It’s perfectly legal and does not require as many hours tuition as you would have in a school. Two-to three hours private tuition per day plus homework is usually enough. We issue a letter confirming that your child is receiving an education at home with A1 Tutors, which local authorities are obliged to accept. They may send an inspector to check on the student’s progress, which is generally considerably better than average for their year-group.
- How to exams work if my child is homeschooled?
We have tutors who are experienced in home schooling, teach in the comfort and security of your own home, guide you through the exam system and allow your child to receive an education in an atmosphere of confidence and safety.
- Which subjects do you cover?
Home-schooled students do so well that they often finish their exams up to two years ahead of their school-attending counterparts. They can choose their subjects as soon as they are ready and study for their GCSEs at their own pace. The government does not determine which subjects you must learn but expects the core subjects of Maths, Science and English to be covered.
