What is self-directed learning?

Shortly, we don’t need a prefabricated curriculum. Student will have the power to choose what she or he wants to learn and when.

💰 Firstly, our lessons will be timetabled, but student has the rights do not attend the lesson. There is no cancelation fee or lost payments.

🙋‍♂️ Secondly, everyone has the choice to pick any topic, or their combination, in Science or IT area. There is even possibility to change the topic at anytime if student discovers something new.

🧡 So, if your kid chooses to do GCSE, no problem, we can cover Science GCSE or Computer Science GCSE. If s/he is interested in computers and spends lots of time on screen, we can direct this passion to real products, such as video production, 3D design or even video games.

How the online teaching works?

📡 Technical details. We will use an open-source platform rocket.chat which I run as a standalone service dedicated only to Home School Online Network. It is a free and safe service, allows encrypted connection with no installation and it runs on all systems, which includes native Android and iOS apps.

💽 You might need other software, especially for coding or IT lessons. However, it might need to pay extra price for licence, there will be always a range of free products which we can use.

💻 Hardware necessary to join is a laptop/PC/tablet with a camera, microphone and connection to the Internet. I believe it should not be a problem nowadays.

📑 I would also suggest to get yourself familiar with the rules for self-directed online learning. You will better understand my teaching principles and methods.


Students should drive the lessons.
