Are you worried about the health and safety of your children and would you rather have your child schooled at home?
Lots of parents would prefer their children to be schooled in the safety of their own home and some parents have already made the decision to keep their children out of school even before the COVID 19 pandemic but all of them have a need for their children to excel with their schooling
That is where homeschooling can help your child to carry on with their school career in the safety of your home.
One of the big challenges for parents is the role of a teacher for your child. Parents usually don’t have the time or don’t want to be a full-time teacher to their children and we as Tutors are able to help you and your child.
It is a proven fact that very few students are able to work on their own and that is where we assist them with their work in the same way that a normal teacher would. Via a dedicated video link, we will be able to see your child busy with his work and they will also be able to see us as well as their ”classmates”.
This will ensure that your child is actually doing his/her work and that there is a tutor available within earshot to ask for assistance. The additional benefit is that by seeing and actually being able to interact with his classmates it will ensure that your child will not feel alone and left without assistance and interaction with his/her peers.

Frequently asked questions:
How are you in contact with my child? With the online platform Zoom we will be able to view and speak to your child. Your child will also be able to see and talk to us and their classmates. This will mean that your child will be under constant supervision with regard to his schoolwork. If need be we can schedule a Zoom meeting with you and your child so that you can see how it will work.
What Grade must my child be in? We are able to assist Grade 1* to Grade 12 students online. For Gr 1 and 2 we suggest that there is a responsible person at your home that could assist with some of the activities. The reason for this is that we have found that the lower grades still need more individual personal attention.

What standard of Education does my child get?

This means that should your child wish at any stage to go to a normal mainstream school they will be able to do so because the standard of schooling is on the same level.
