The home tuition segment of IHT is effectively the cause to its beginning. Educating the younger members of our societies is the single, weightiest matter that rests on the shoulders of the ones who have assumed responsibility. As the saying reads, ‘the only thing more expensive than education is ignorance.’

One of the principle reasons behind IHT’s inception was due to a range of voices being raised in regards to the same concern; namely that there needed to be formalised home tuition of the Islamic sciences and an alternative to the current standard of teaching available.

We endeavour to work closely with parents in order to create a conducive environment for their children to enhance and receive the utmost best in Islamic instruction. An amalgamation of the parents enthusiasm, support and involvement and a teacher's ability to teach, translates into high levels of achievement.

IHT have managed to devise a syllabus that will cater for a child’s Islamic education. The subjects that have been included in the curriculum are ones that will provide a basic overview and understanding of Islam. Currently home tuition classes are taking place in Luton and Milton Keynes and the subjects below are proving to be extremely beneficial.
