What is the difference between a homeschool tutorial and a homeschool co-op?
A homeschooling tutorial and a homeschooling co-op are two different approaches to homeschooling that offer distinct advantages and learning experiences.
A homeschooling tutorial typically involves one-on-one instruction between a qualified tutor or teacher and a single student or a small group of students. The tutor provides personalized attention, tailoring the curriculum and teaching methods to the specific needs and learning style of each student. This individualized approach allows for a flexible and customized learning experience, as the tutor can adapt the pace and content to ensure optimal understanding and progress. Homeschooling tutorials are often sought out by families who prefer a highly personalized and focused educational setting.
On the other hand, a homeschooling co-op brings together a group of homeschooling families to share resources, expertise, and social opportunities. In a co-op, parents take turns teaching various subjects or skills to a group of students, allowing them to benefit from the expertise and perspectives of multiple parents or educators. Co-ops often organize regular group activities, field trips, and social events, fostering a sense of community and providing opportunities for students to interact and collaborate with their peers. Homeschooling co-ops are popular among families seeking a cooperative and social learning environment for their children.
MTT Homeschool Tutorial is unique. We offer opportunities for collaborative-learning in mixed age groups while ensuring each child receives targeted math and/or literacy support based on their individualized needs. We encourage parent volunteers to support the tutor in the lessons and supervise outdoor activities but do not require participation.
How many students are in a tutorial?
We require a minimum of 5 students and a maximum of 8 students in each tutorial group.
Will students go off site at any time (i.e. field trips)?
There may be opportunities to organize field trips. If so, this will be communicated to parents. Parent volunteers will be requested to participate and a permission slip will need to be filled out and returned.
How will I know what progress my student is making (report cards, progress report?) / Will there be a diagnostic given to determine my child’s subject proficiency/grade level preparedness?
Teachers will conduct an assessment to determine where the students are performing in math and/or literacy in order to create an individualized plan for learning. Parents can request a copy of any assessment teachers administer for their documentation. Students will receive an end of semester student summary.
How does MTT support a student who is transitioning from traditional school to homeschool and vice versa?
Our teacher tutors are there to guide and support your students through their educational journey. Our tutors’ most important goal is to build a rapport, engage your child, and encourage them as they hit personal milestones. If you would like MTT to facilitate homeschooling for your child with your chosen curriculum, we have separate packages for that and our Student Solutions Team would be happy to help answer any questions you have.
