    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Does your Kid Require Home Tuition? (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      It's basically an ad for a home tutoring service. Get rid of the links to the home tutoring service and change it into a substantial article about the benefits of tutoring in the home and it'll pass QAP in a flash. HubPages doesn't host ads from users, just from their ad partners. If you contact the HubPages team, they could probably direct you to one of their ad partners to buy ad space.

      You need to change all those references to 'kid' to 'child' or 'children'. While it's okay to use 'kid' in an informal conversation, it makes your hub/advert appear unprofessional.

      As it is blatantly an advertisement, it probably won't pass the QAP in any case.

        Not to mention the poor quality of language:

        "showing the flowing signs:"

        "to bridge the hurting gap."

        "Make Money Dong Home Tutoring"

    You are using the words "home tuition". While I got your meaning after reading a bit, it think the topic of your Hub would be better understood if you changed home tuition to home schooling or home tutoring. Especially in the States, where most of your traffic will come from, this is a more commonly used wording.

    From there: Your Hub is very short. If I were a parent wondering if I should explore home schooling for my kid I would want some serious information on the pros and cons. You kind of skim over it all. The bold phrases you are using as bullet points could be changed to headers, and you could go in depth about each point. Why do kids react this way in traditional school settings? How does home schooling make it better? What are the advantages and disadvantages in each situation?

    Get rid of the Amazon link. Or, find one that helps parents learn more about home tutoring, not how to start a tutoring business.

    Get rid of the bolding in your first paragraph. It's not necessary.

    Get rid of the link to Home Tutor Singapore, and the images. Find some CC images that make your article look appealing, or create your own images. The other images make it look like you are trying to push that business instead of providing helpful information for parents and guardians of kids who might need home tutoring. Surely that is not the case I hope. You can certainly give advice about how to seek out tutoring services in their area (without linking to a business in a over-promotional way).

    Good luck! I think the topic can be very useful for someone who needs the info. I'd just flesh it out a lot more, get rid of some of the overly promotional links and fix the formatting.

      I never like to refer to a child as a kid.  I would probably change the title something like 'Homeschooling a Child with Special Needs'

        It's not about homeschooling, it's an ad for a tutoring service.

      It's an ad for a tutoring service in which the tutor comes to the home as part of the service, not an article about homeschooling.

      Tutoring is different from homeschooling in that it generally involves a hired or volunteer tutor who focuses on repairing the person's specific academic weaknesses. For instance, I used to tutor people having problems with reading and writing skills. I wasn't a home tutor because I insisted on meeting in a public space. If I'd gone to their homes to tutor, I'd have been a home tutor.

    Great question. I see no reason why those who want to do it and can afford it should not do it. However  knowing how we inherited an unjust and unfair society full of inequalities, I think as people we should be fighting for an education system that gives every child the right and support they need to have the same quality of education as every other child in the country so they can have an equal and fair chance for fair outcomes.
