Although homeschoolers spend an average of two to three hours doing formal homeschool hours per day, there are usually no requirements that make them do so.
How long does it take to homeschool?
When I first began homeschooling I spent about two hours per day, four days per week to homeschool two children (one at a 2nd grade level, one at a Kindergarten level). Now that I’m homeschooling three children (grades 9, 6, and 4) homeschooling takes about 7 hours per week of actual teaching and then helping.
Is it hard to homeschool?
Depending on the ages of your children, this can be hard to do. When you homeschool, you are basically working from home. This means that it’s harder to get away from your job. Some families have separate homeschool rooms, so they would theoretically be able to shut the door and put their homeschool day behind them.
Do you get paid to homeschool?
Professional homeschool teachers may be self-employed or work for companies that offer classes or tutoring to homeschooled students. Parents who choose to teach their own children at home are not paid, but some states offer tax credits or charter school stipends to homeschooling families.
Is it possible to homeschool and work full time?
Others have jobs outside the home. And, yes, some have full-time jobs or work weird hours. However, due to the flexible nature of homeschooling, it is possible to homeschool even if you work full-time or have a crazy schedule. It may require some experimentation and creative scheduling, but it can be done.
