Homeschooling has become more prevalent in the UK in recent years and the Covid-19 crisis has accelerated its growth. It is very much considered a highly-effective and practical solution for families for whom attending school isn’t suitable or preferred such as for:
● SEN pupils
● children who struggle in a traditional classroom environment
● families that frequently travel
● pupils affected by overcrowding in schools
● children that are being bullied in school.
My Language Lab understands that homeschooled students have different requirements to those learning in a traditional school classroom. Our approach differs slightly to take these circumstances into account.
Firstly, an initial assessment is carried to find out more about how we can help your child(ren). This is an opportunity for parents and pupils to outline what their requirements are, for us to have an in-depth discussion and answer any questions.
We then begin the process of tutor matching and due to the longevity of the tutor-tutee relationship, an e-meet can be arranged before sessions begin. A customised learning timetable, lesson plans and quarterly objectives are also agreed upon. It’s important for parents to feel they are continuously kept in the loop so we send Lab Progress Reports™️ every 3 months, have wellness check-ins and offer online Parent’s Evenings.
We also provide homeschooled families with comprehensive assistance in completing applications for local exam centres as well as mock exams and UCAS consultations.
As is always the case with our homeschooled students, tutors play a vital role in guiding the student not only towards academic excellence but cultural awareness and improved self-confidence ready to progress to the next chapter of their studies.
