Homeschool Support

At the Chicago Home Tutor we provide high-quality homeschool support for students who are pursuing homeschooling with a variety of needs and goals.

Your tutor will meet with you to determine exactly what your family needs in regard to homeschool support, but here are some ways that we have helped previous students and families: consultation in selecting a curriculum, identifying and making a plan to fill any gaps in the student’s learning to date, preventing and working through some of the social and emotional challenges that can come along with homeschooling (e.g. managing the role of parent and teacher, finding a balanced social life), taking responsibility for teaching certain subjects during the week and assigning homework to complete between sessions, and monitoring progress to ensure that all essential material is being covered. Additionally, we specialize in helping to set students up for success with many important life skills such as planning, organization, and time management.  We can support students in the homeschool environment with social or emotional difficulties.  We have worked with sibling groups together on homeschooling goals. We have also supported families who are pursuing unschooling. When the homeschooling arrangement is temporary, we help prepare students transition back to school and actively help them make the transition by decreasing support and increasing independence.  Whatever your need, we can help support you in this exciting venture! Contact us now to obtain more information. 

What Parents Say:

The Chicago Home Tutor has had a transformative effect on our son's reading and writing ability over a really short period of time. Our tutor is fun, approachable and our son loves her classes. He learns by playing and he is proud to show us his progress. She details improvements and compares our child to the average at his age. It's invaluable to know where he stands and how he's doing great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chicago Home Tutor to every parent seeking for a top class tutor.

The Chicago Tutor was a wonderful gift during a challenging time for my daughter. The whole process worked marvelously smoothly. Ryan was terrific - he kept my daughter motivated and feeling secure. He was also responsive to changes when they became necessary. And he could teach the material well. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Our tutor is an excellent and engaging tutor. She works with my 7 year old daughter on math concepts and is very effective. My daughter actually looks forward to working with her. She is very conscientious and professional; she is always prepared with materials and has multiple ways of approaching the subject. I would highly recommend the Chicago Home Tutor to anyone in need of a tutor.

I am so happy with the Chicago Home Tutor. You can tell our tutor, Laura, has prepared every class meticulously and knows perfectly what each student needs. My son has improved a lot with her help, and he smiles every time I tell him that he will be seeing Ms. R.
