My youngest child has been having one-to-one sessions (via Zoom) since the summer holidays 2022. We didn’t get him a tutor so he’d start getting A*s or to hothouse him for a private school entrance exam. We got him a tutor so he would be able to access the curriculum and cope better in the classroom.

Figures out last month suggest we are far from alone. Homeschooling has risen in this region by 40 per cent since 2019 and tutors report being busier than ever. The rise in homeschooling and using tutors suggest more and more parents are looking at ways to support their children beyond the classroom.
