Season 2, Episode 14 - How to Homeschool - The 101 Guide to Kickstarting Learning at Home

On this episode you'll be hearing from the founder of UK Virtual School, Syd.

Syd has 5 top tips for you today to optimise your homeschooling:

➡ Create a structure - Something as simple as a timetable for your child can change both yours and their mindset.

➡ You don't HAVE to follow the curriculum - branch out and have fun with your learning and teaching.

➡ If you're not good at teaching a subject, outsource to someone who is, or learn at the same pace as your child.

➡ Slowly build up a network of people who you can trust to help you home educate - find families who have the same goals as you.

➡ Make sure you have a vision of where you're going - This will help you follow the path to that destination.
