Tutoring and Private Lessons

Individualized learning is more than a buzzword at Village Home. Whether you want to deepen understanding of a subject, or, manage to catch up in areas, one-on-one tutoring can be the most cost-effective and efficient way to do so. We understand that every person is a unique learner with your own learning style and preferences.  One-on-one tutoring is the ultimate in personalized learning, allowing you to move at your own pace through material, in a way that is relevant to you.

During Covid, most tutoring sessions are held online via Zoom. Starting in Summer 2021, in-person sessions may be conducted with masks for the learner and the tutor and socially distanced.

Our Tutors

Our tutors are experts at working with homeschoolers who are on independent learning paths. Most Village Home tutors are also classroom teachers at Village Home, so they have plenty of experience guiding all kinds of learners. Our tutors cover almost all subject areas and grade levels. All tutors are background checked and will meet you online, or on campus,  or at another mutually agreed upon public location such as a public library, or a public coffee shop.
