Homeschooling – A Rising Alternative

Written by Yasir Nasir

With the arrival of the recent pandemic comes several adjustments to our everyday lives, and our kids’ lives. Many Ontario schools are now offering home education such as online classes as alternatives for schooling while others opt for a more safety-driven course of action where kids alternate school days to minimize the number of students within a facility.

Parents often find themselves looking for alternatives such as home tutoring services due to COVID-19. The concerns within health and safety can be reassured by taking certain measures, however, the worry becomes more than just that. Parents are uneasy about the future of their children because while they want their children to go to school, they also want them to be safe. Parents need help outside of the system which could include private tutoring or any home tutoring services. This includes qualified tutors that come into their home for a set amount of hours per week which will facilitate their child’s learning and assist them in staying on top of their school work. Tutoring experiences in homeschooling differ from regular schooling in the sense that the learning style differs and caters to that of the child.

If you are feeling uneasy about sending your children to school, Teaching Gurus has you covered! Teaching Gurus offers online tutoring services as well as home education such as homeschooling, whether it be with a one-on-one tutor or group tutoring. We provide our services throughout the school year from Grades K-12, teaching all essential subjects such as Math, Science, English, and more! With the intent to homeschool, there are several advantages that come with it such as smaller support groups wherein kids can rely on the tutor to assist them in certain areas.

There are several different ways everyone is trying to adjust to the new “norm” but the biggest adjustment being schooling. Teaching Gurus is, in fact, excited about this modification because there is more attention and focus on the child’s learning with homeschooling, which in turn, aids students in excelling and achieving their academic goals!
