Home Tutor Scheme Resources

Tutors welcome on board!

A warm welcome and a big thank you for the time, commitment, and invaluable support you have devoted to the Home Tutor Scheme (HTS).

We are extremely pleased to be able to make information and resources more readily accessible to you and hope you find our website a useful tool for tutoring.

This web page has been developed as part of the support HTS provides for all our volunteer tutors. It is especially designed to facilitate your access to our teaching resources and your communication with us and other tutors. We have been working hard on compiling teaching materials to make your tutoring easier. We would appreciate any contributions from you as well. If you could send us any lesson plans or teaching materials that you have found worked well with your student, we would be happy to post them on this page.

If you would like to discuss the tutoring process or your student's progress please feel free to contact us or make an appointment to come in and see one of our coordinators.

Please do not hesitate to let us know of any additional information you'd like to be included.

Best Wishes
The HTS Team
