Home tutoring for Students with Medical needs
or
if youve just had enough of incompetent Primary Schools

Most Primary schools are wonderful however, if your child cannot attend school do not panic I am here to help.
It doesn't matter what age they are 4-16, if you need a tutor to educate your child during their normal school day, please get in touch.

Whatever the reason:
Whether they have been excluded for behaviour?
Have medical needs that prevent them from getting to school?
Bullied and no longer wish to attend school?
You simply are not happy with the level of teaching being offered at school?

During the hours of 10:00 to 14:00 I can provide excellent tutoring in any of the National Curriculum areas. Regardless of Key Stage or SEND Needs.
Your child can still sit their relevant exams. They just need to be adequately prepared. 

If the council wants to check on your child’s education:
The council can make an ‘informal enquiry’ to check your child is getting a suitable education at home. They can serve a school attendance order, if they think your child needs to be taught at school.
This is nothing to be concerned about.
If tutored by me, when they visit they will see clearly that your child has received appropriately planned education, have improved their knowledge and ability, and are working hard. 
Home education
"The respect of parent's freedom to educate their children according to their vision of what education should be has been part of international human rights standards since their very emergence."

UK law is clear, parents are responsible for the education of their offspring regardless of whether they are in school or out of it.

In law, the right to an education is an obligatory right, it may neither be denied to, nor refused by, a child.

Thus since children may not refuse education and there is no academic consensus on what constitutes an effective education, it is believed that the state must be flexible in defining what a 'suitable' education is.
As a parent, you must make sure your child receives a full-time education from the age of 5 but you don’t have to follow the national curriculum.
Nobody knows exactly how many children are being educated at home because many parents are under no obligation to tell the authorities. But freedom of information responses provided to Education Guardian indicate numbers are rising.

Responses from 134 of England’s 153 local education authorities list 30,298 children as receiving home education in 2014-15. Of these, 13,007 are of primary age, and 17,291 of them are between 11 and 16.
Among 103 authorities that provided data back to 2011-12, the number of primary–age children recorded as home educated rose by 60% in the three academic years to 2014-15. In the secondary phase, the increase was 37%.

In some of England’s largest local authority areas, hundreds of young people are being home educated: Kent listed 1,285 children; Essex, 1,234; Norfolk, 1,052; and Lancashire, 918. About 85% of local authorities documented a rise in home education over those three years, with 27 authorities reporting a doubling of numbers.

Right now 50,000 children are being home educated in the UK and that figure is rising by 80 per cent every year.

Why have a tutor?

  • Tutoring gives children who are written off by the school system an opportunity to thrive and achieve and have a happy experience with learning.
  • Many parents find that their family life is much happier when school stresses are removed and their children revert to being ‘their normal selves' again.
  • Being out of school and in contact with real life develops many study/motivational/life skills in home-educated children, which some universities recognise as an advantage.
  • ​Children begin to take charge of their own lives and their own learning, which develops a sense of responsibility and maturity that often exceeds their school peers.
  • In London alone, 43% of students use a private tutor, so something must be working, right? With UK class sizes at their largest of recent years, teachers often don’t have as much time to spend with students on an individual basis as they once did.  Using a private tutor can prove invaluable as it not only assures that a student is covering the relevant course work, but it also makes certain that their approach to course work is correct.
  • A good tutor will take the time to create a study plan for each individual student to ensure that they receive a personalised service. With private tuition, students are given one to one attention throughout the duration of their lessons, which enables them to ask any questions and focus on specific areas of a subject that they may need help with.
  • Many students find that private tuition helps improve their coursework in class. As students become more confident in a subject, their motivation to do well increases. This can often lead to an overall improvement in their grades. What’s more, some of the techniques that they learn from their tutor can also be transferred to other subjects.
  • School courses can often move quickly and many students don’t grasp every aspect of a topic before it’s time to move on. With private tuition, students are given the opportunity to concentrate on those topics that they don’t fully understand, because without the basics, learning gets more and more difficult as time goes on.
  • ​Using a private tutor can often give students a much needed confidence boost. Due to the ‘one to one’ nature of private tuition, tutors can quickly identify which areas a student may need improvement in – something that students may not be able to identify on their own.  Sometimes all it takes to instill a little confidence in a student is to have a tutor identify what they are doing correctly and suggest how they may improve in the areas they are falling short in.
  • For some students, working within the confines of a 9 to 5 school day doesn’t always inspire their maximum learning potential. Some students, who study creative subjects, find that they work best at certain times during the day. Using a private tutor enables students to schedule lessons when it suits them.  
  • ​For students, one of the biggest challenges of their school career is managing their time effectively. They may have several other interests outside of school and balancing each of them appropriately can often be difficult. A good tutor will be able to help students come up with their own study schedules and recommend, when, where and how to study.
Marta Drew says:
“The decision to home educate has been one of our best as a family.
We have grown closer, and the children have grown in their love of learning.
They are happy, enthusiastic children who love life.”
