The Web Wise Tutors' Philosophy
WebWise Tutors thoroughly believes in the important role of parents in their child's education. We know that parents have options and how parents decide to educate their children is a very personal choice. WebWise Tutors is extremely proud of the fact that we support the values that homeschooling families have for their children. We will help you customize an effective program to fit your child’s needs and one which will compliment your educational philosophy.
The Homeschooling Parent’s Philosophy
There are many homeschooling philosophies to research and to incorporate into your family’s situation and belief system. Homeschooling is not only an educational decision, but is often a lifestyle decision. WebWise Tutors is committed to supporting your decision to home school your child.
Additional factors when considering your homeschool philosophies should include how structured you would like your child’s educational program to be, how flexible you would like your daily and weekly schedules to be and how comfortable you are in preparing your child’s lessons.
One philosophical option to consider is an unschooling philosophy where the parent provides incidental learning based on daily life experiences (example: teaching fractions by measuring ingredients for a recipe). Another option is a “school at home” philosophy where there are more structured lessons, direct instruction and formal curriculum. Another option might include a more eclectic and varied approach where the parent believes that structure is still important but that there are many ways to teach a child including experiential learning and the use of curriculum.
Regardless of the option that works best for you, we’re here to help. We offer a full continuum of services to your home schooled child and have the ability to design a program that fits your child's needs as well as the needs of your family.
