Exam results and feedback

Success means different things to different people, and grades do not define any young person or their future potential. And a 5 can be a super achievement, just as a 9 can. Just a sample of the feedback from our learners, as exams results have come in this week. We’re so pleased for them, and how proud they are of their accomplishments!

*Dear Kate, I just wanted to let you know that of the three subjects that D studied with you/Caitlin, he achieved a 9 in Geography, an 8 in Business, and a 9 in English Literature!! Caitlin might be interested to know that he also got an 8 in English Language. Overall, he achieved the best grades at the test centre where he sat his iGCSEs 🙂  Huge thanks and credit to you and to Caitlin for your teaching and resources.  With thanks and appreciation, T (and D)

*M got 9 for her Literature; together with the 9 from last year for Language she’s super happy!!!🥳🎉 Thank you Caitlin so much for your help and support🙏

*I just wanted to let you know I got a 9 in Business and 7 in Psychology! Thank you so, so much for the amazing teaching, resources and hard work that you put into every lesson.

I will really miss lessons with you, but I have been inspired to do Business and Psychology a level at sixth form this year. Thank you for giving me a love for these subjects and for making every lesson so engaging and using lots of real life scenarios in every lesson!

Announcing a new summer design course … INTERIOR DESIGN – ICONIC DESIGNERS !! Due to popular demand, our art and design courses on offer are expanding …

INTERIOR DESIGN – ICONIC DESIGNERS

An iconic design is ground-breaking, sets new standards in its field, and becomes a bench mark for later designs / designers. They’re ground-breaking in terms of materials, how they are engineered, they way they solve design problems or in the features/functions they offer. In this course, we look at a range of iconic designers and their designs for interiors.

This is a 4 week course, running for 4 consecutive Mondays.

Available: Online, Live – Mondays at 11am starting July 25th

You can find out more, and enrol, here: https://homemadeeducation.com/portfolio/iconic_designers/

Announcing new support for gcse/igcse maths

We’re excited to announce our new IGCSE / GCSE MATHS (SELF-LED COMPENDIUM)!

We haven’t (yet) been able to find a brilliant Maths partner, to offer you an amazing tutor-led course.  So, while we’re still on the lookout for such a special person, we’re thrilled to offer any young person enrolled on any of our tutor-led GCSE/IGCSE courses free access to this self-led IGCSE/GCSE Maths compilation bundle (we think of it as a ‘Maths kit and caboodle’!).

Includes:
• this is a self-led compendium, providing materials for young people self-studying IGCSE/GCSE maths
• a full range of learning resources, videos, activities, quizzes and more are included, organized by topic (covering virtually all syllabuses commonly used by home educators)
• also included are a range of peer-to-peer discussion forums, where young people can share ideas, solve problems, etc. with other young people just like them … and belong to a self-led learner Maths community

Access to our IGCSE/GCSE Maths Self-led Compendium is FREE for any young person enrolled on any of our tutor-led GCSE/IGCSE courses.

So, they’ll have everything, at their fingertips, all in one convenient place.

End of SPring sessions

It’s always a strange mix of emotions when we get to the end of the year, and our ‘live’ sessions end and many of our learners are writing their GCSE, IGCSE and ALevel exams. Wishing everyone a fantastic summer and 2022 beyond, and we’ll see many of you again in September! And some of our favourite feedback, as courses have ended …

“5 courses with Kate over the past 2 year. It’s been a slight uphill journey with tutor assessed grading last year, but with Kate’s help she did fabulously. However, luckily this year has been far more straight forward. We have been so lucky with the such a range of fantastic subjects offered by Kate. DD has thoroughly enjoyed all her courses this year and has decided to continue Business and Sociology from last year, onto A Levels. I know this is only due to your enthusiasm in the subjects and excellent teaching. DD really felt this shone through in your happy, friendly personality that came through in your live lessons. We’re so happy we found HomeMadeEducation and 2 fabulous teachers to study with other the past 2 years!”

“It’s been an …. emotional morning for our DD. She’s just had the last ever English Lit lesson with the lovely Caitlin Kendall after two years of studying English language last year and English lit this year. She’s grown so much in confidence and … her love of the subject and enthusiasm must have shone through at the (A level sixth form) interview she was offered a place less than 24 hours after our visit. A massive thank you to Caitlin Kendall for your brilliant classes and enthusiasm for the subjects, DD has really enjoyed them, plus the extra literature prep course last summer and book group were brilliant. I’m sure DD will be joining in this summer with the book group after all the exams are finished mid June.”
