Problems: Home Schooling, Instead of School
London
Background

The eldest girl had failed to gain the grades she needed in her AS levels and was therefore at risk of not achieving the overall grades she needed for her first choice Univsersity. Her brother was preparing for GCSEs at the same time, and the younger girl had some mild dyslexia that merited occasional support.

Outcome

By far the greatest emphasis of the Tutor's work was with the eldest girl, who was to be homeschooled instead of attending a private sixth form colleage in London. By the end of the first term, the courses taken so far had been reviewed and the girl scored 3 As in her modules. At the end of the year the girl's final grades were AAB and her was accepted to her first choice University. The younger brother and the sister also thrived with the Tutor's support.
