Home schooling: Mum prefers to teach children herself

MOTHER-of-four Roseanne Chan has home schooled all of her children from day one.

The qualified school teacher taught for seven years before having children and making the decision to home school them.

"Being a teacher and seeing both methods of education really put things into perspective for me, and the environment I wanted my children to grow up and learn in," she said.

"I find that home schooling is a highly successful method of teaching as it allows you to provide individualised attention and care into all of your children and students.

"My children love it - I can allocate one-on-one time with them to give them the best possible chance at learning.

"What is really great about it is there is no rush - kids learn at a pace they are comfortable with and only move on from a certain concept when they fully grasp it.

"It just makes sense to be teaching our children this way."
