The Home-Education Experts
Joy to Learn is a family-run tutoring agency that specialises in home-education.
Clare Berry was working as a tutor for a child who has an Education Health and Care Plan. It is a very special form of tuition which involves not just teaching but building a relationship with the family, and establishing the child's trust, taking into consideration the child's special needs so that they are willing and able to learn. It quickly became apparent that there was a great need for this type of tuition and Clare was in high demand. However as Clare says:
"There is a limit to how many children one tutor can help when you are working 3-4 hours per day 4-5 days per week just with one child. I wanted to be able to help more children who need a special approach to their education."
