A key word to focus on when preparing to homeschool a student is “goals”. By setting several realistic goals throughout each year of learning, your student will have a structured, laid out plan that is easy to follow and understanding, giving your student a more focused curriculum that mirrors classroom learning. Your homeschooling tutor can assist you in developing these goals, and ultimately create a customized learning plan for your homeschool student. These goals can be simple, such as getting to a certain page in your student's math textbook by the end of the year, or doing a certain number of book reports before summer begins. By setting goals, your student will not be missing out and will continuously learn as much as possible within the home environment.
Another benefit to homeschooling is attention. With the combined effort of the tutor and the parent, the student will maximize the attention they receive versus the classroom setting, which unfortunately these days is often overcrowded. Personalized attention from a tutor can point out areas of improvement in each and every student, for an even more focused and positive learning experience. Plus, receiving an education from a mentor who is passionate about learning, no matter what the setting, will more often that not result in positive learning experiences and students will pick up on their mentor's passion for learning.
