Home Tuition Tutor Help! Urgent!?
Can anyone recommend me a website that will give me details/prices on how much money it is for a tutor to come to my house five days a week and teach my 3 children (13,9 and 4) the National Curriculum (UK) This would be of great help! Thanks!

You may also want to consider an online tutor. This way, you only pay when your kids actually need help! There are several online, but I like one in particular. I've included a link to the one that I like below under source. You can sign up for free and get your free tutoring before you have to pay anything. Hope this helps!

What is the point of being home educated if your basically going to do school at home?! Do you want your children to be spoon fed? Let them follow their passions, especially your 4 year old, they should be outside playing 5 days a week!
I was home educated throughout secondary school, I went to a home ed centre, did work with my mum, worked with my friends, did projects, museums, trip, courses, joined clubs and societies, went travelling and became independent with my learning.
I'm applying now to uni and feel confident about being successful as I can balance my social and academic life extremely well. I have never followed the curriculum and have excellent A level results (GCSE's where a bit of a shocker.. having never sat an exam but I passed everyone picking up a few A's on my way) without following the national curriculum.
I'm getting of subject here.
You obviously haven't got an issue with the schooling system, nor do my parents but you have chosed to home educate your children. Why not make the most of it, enjoy your time with them. Their all still very young. God knows my sister didn't learn to read till she was 9 and is currently in her second year studying medicine at Edinburgh.
They won't get behind. Its impossible unless their unmotivated (very rare for HE kids) their still young when I was 13 I was obsessed with lord of the rings and was teaching myself elvish (still fluent! lol) I studied maths and history (I studied other stuff but didn't actively look out to do it) I didn't study sciences till I was 16, and picked it up extremely quickly because I knew how to learn. A skill a lot of schooled kids don't have.
Let them follow their passions, don't worry.
Is a single tutor going to be broad enough to satisfy your kids needs for questions across the broad curriculum? as they get older you'd need one for each subject. Would they become reliant on being taught? Later in life this would do them no favours.Source(s): Personal experience

Not knowing whereabouts in the UK you are it is impossible to be specific.
However try http://www.localtutor.co.uk/ They have the UK divided up into districts so you can just pull up the tutoring adverts relevant to your location. The site also lets you search their database by entering your postcode, as well as searching by subject for local tutors. Currently there are more than 2,500 tutors advertising their services on the "Local Tutor" site.
Prices, details etcetera are for you and the individual tutor(s) to negotiate between you; each tutor is self employed and therefore free to set their own rates, conditions and so on.

Searching through http://www.localtutor.co.uk/ is one option for you.
What I recommend is go for online tutoring for elder 2 children. You can get help to locate online tutors from http://www.aplustutors.co.uk/.
Or you may register with sites like http://eduglow.com/ and some of them have great tutors .http://eduglow.com/ started their UK operations recently and charges less than 4 GBP per hour for one to one tutoring for subjects.
