Home-schooling is a non-traditional form of learning where children are usually taught from the comfort of their homes by their parents.
However, many parents cannot home-school their children themselves for various reasons, so their children attend a private learning centre in someone’s home.
Children often work off a home-school curriculum; however, learning can be more hands-on and relevant to everyday life.
Why do parents choose home-schooling for their children?
There is less exposure to illness.
The child benefits from one-on-one learning.
Children are not categorized and can work at their own pace.
Parents can ensure that their children are free from questionable teaching.
Children have more emotional freedom than in a standard classroom as peer pressure, bullying etc., is limited and therefore, there is no loss of self-esteem.
What are the benefits of learners need attend extra lessons with a Tutor?
On the other hand, tutoring occurs when learners are given individualized attention that they do not get in a crowded classroom.
This helps learners who struggle to keep up and those who are not challenged enough to be taught at their level.
It also helps to improve attitudes towards learning through one-on-one learning, which presents a great environment to teach the learner to ask questions.
This can be done without fear or judgment. They might get in front of their entire class if the learner is afraid to speak up when they need help.
