Today my girls are at their weekly tutorial.
A homeschool tutorial is a program that offers a variety of classes for students. Generally, tutorials meet once, twice, or three times a week. Some tutorials use a set curriculum that the parents follow on their homeschooling days. Some tutorials offer classes that are purely supplemental.
Our tutorial is supplemental. The girls can sign up for a variety of classes offered between 9am and 4:30pm. Our girls attend 5 classes each and they are at the tutorial from 10am until 4:30pm (with free time and lunch included) for a total of $160 dollars per month ($80 per kid). This is cheaper than many preschools. Plus, the girls get social interaction and mama gets work time.
This is a church-based school, but it is not a requirement to sign up for Bible classes. We are very happy with the classes the girls are taking. Examples of some of the course offerings are:
- Medieval History
- Lego Build
- Algebra/Upper Math for older students
- Creative Writing
- Handbell Choir (I love that Sera is taking this!)
In the future, I will use Tuesdays to post interesting homeschool articles, additional resources, and to answer questions. Look for our regularly scheduled school day tomorrow:)
The girls on the first day of tutorial. They would not take a normal picture. It looks like Sera is trying to counterbalance the stereotype of the uncool homeschooler with her (even more awkward)flamingo pose.
