What is Home Schooling?

Home education or home schooling is when parents choose to educate their children at home rather than sending them to school. Parents choose what is to be learned and how it is to be taught. They can educate their children entirely themselves or can choose to receive help from outside tutors.

You can find more information about Home-Schooling via the Government website.


How can Bright Light Education Help with Home Schooling?

We are pleased to support families who have made the choice to home educate their children and are here to provide tutoring to supplement the education they receive at home. We are here to help children grow in creativity and confidence. We have parents who may lack the confidence to teach certain subjects and this is where we can help.

When parents choose to home educate their children, there is a huge amount of responsibility on the parents’ shoulders to ensure a high-quality, full-time education that meets the child’s needs and fulfils their potential. We can help to ensure that your child is not missing out on crucial aspects of their learning.


What do we offer?

We run English home-schooling sessions (creative writing, comprehension and SPAG) online for children aged 7 to 12 years old. We teach up to 6 children in each group. Sessions run during term-time only but could start at any point throughout the year if there is the demand. You may also be interested in our Bright Light Phonics classes for younger children learning to read and write.

English Skills 5 OVERVIEW

“My son has been learning with Dani for the past year and she is absolutely fantastic. She has grown a love for English in him that he never had before. His confidence in writing has skyrocketed. She is such an inspiration to the children.” (Salma, parent)

“Not only did my kids enjoy Dani’s lessons but they benefited really well. I definitely recommend her classes!” (Ashfa, parent)

“Dear Dani. Thank you so much for all of your help. I know your input was essential to enable him to do so well. Aside from your wonderful individualised teaching, your general support and belief in him were so important. You have been the most consistent presence in his education since he was a young boy. Words can’t express how grateful we are. Thank you so much.” Richard, (parent)

“Dani’s English class is thoroughly enjoyed by both my children. Even though English skills 1 is one hour a week they carry on learning the concepts and solidifying their understanding throughout the week with the help of perfectly targeted homework, reading the class book and spelling.  Dani manages extremely well to differentiate between the children and their various abilities by giving extra support to those who need it and stretching those who are more able!! One of the best things is Dani manages to get a good amount of written work done each lesson, allowing the children to practise their learning and grammar, comprehension and spellings!  She is extremely engaging, and the kids love her! She will be a teacher fondly remembered later on in life by both my children.” (Wajiha, parent)

“Our daughter was nominated as Scholar of the Week at her school today. Her teacher gave the reasons for her receiving such a recognition. In a nutshell her teacher highlighted the immense progress she has made with her creative writing and she is absolutely so happy with her work. She also mentioned that a couple of weeks ago, teachers from an independent secondary school came for a visit and a couple of the teachers noticed her creative writing work. They praised her quality of her writing and one of them exclaimed how he wished that some of his students could have her standard of writing!

We are so happy with the progress she is making with her writing and other areas but more importantly she herself has noticed that she can be really good at it. We just wanted to share her achievements with you as you are helping her in her journey to discover that writing can be improved and can be so much fun. Thank you SO much for your great efforts Rachel!” (Mary, parent)

“Thank you Rachel. My daughter is really enjoying the sessions. She looks forward to them all week. The thing she appreciates the most is that you speak to the group like adults. I think they feel very grown up in your sessions – my daughter likes how direct and honest you are.” (Laura, parent)
