Individual Tutoring

Individual tutoring is the method by which most of us home educate our children. It is also the most effective educational method!

Tutoring is a common method in homeschooling, and it is the most effective method ever devised.  While working with an individual child, it is easy to tell whether the work is within the child’s ability….

The power and efficiency of tutoring is that the parent follows the child’s ability and interest rather than following a curriculum plan with its formula for learning skills in a certain order.
