How We Do It
Blueberry House offers a complete homeschool program for children in grades K-12. We teach all subjects. Our tutors work with you to make sure that your child is meeting all the state requirements for his grade level. Tutoring for homeschoolers is offered Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 am to 3:15 pm. At Blueberry House we focus strictly on the academics. We do not have music or sports programs. Our goal is to tutor and to train students academically, socially, mentally, and spiritually. We are in the business of helping students to excel in their studies and to equip them with the skills needed to serve in their homes, communities, and churches.
Students may choose to be tutored in the four day a week program, or part time. You will find class options here. Students are placed in classes at their learning level, rather than grade level. All students receive one on one tutoring during the home school group classes. After-hours tutoring is available at a reduced rate for those who need even further help.
Tutors oversee several grades. While one grade is in class, the others are either studying independently or with tutors and volunteers. Students who have their work done, are allowed to invent and create liberally on their own until their next group class. If your child is being tutored in three or more classes at BHT, you do not need to pick them up between their classes. Students will engage in board games, art, free play and study groups. Activity centers are set up outside of the classrooms so students who are in class, can enjoy a quiet and focused learning environment.
This model of learning has proven very successful. Our low student to tutor ratio of 4:1 ensures success for all students. Students who are tutored at their learning level, rather than grade level, are much better educated than those who receive tutoring in work that is at the expected grade level for their age. Our students thrive in the relaxed and gentle atmosphere at Blueberry House.
