How to Outsource Hard Subjects During Homeschooling

Posted By Smockity Frocks On July 26, 2012 @ 6:24 am In 4 Moms,Homeschool | 1 Comment



This week The 4 Moms of 35+ Kids [3] are discussing how to teach children difficult subjects we know nothing about. These could include foreign languages, high level math or science, or others subjects.

As the homeschooled child gets older and wiser the chances rise that they will want or need to learn a subject that Mom has either 1) no knowledge of, or 2) has let the knowledge she once knew fly right out of her head to make room for all the meal planning and skip counting.

In that case, there are plenty of options for continuing to homeschool even when the kiddos outsmart you.

  • Online classes, like The Potter’s School [4]
  • Homeschool co-ops. We got together with 2 other boys in our homeschool group to do dissecting for biology last year.
  • Tutors. My friend, Melissa [5], offered to tutor anyone who needs help with Algebra 2 or beyond. Since her degree is in math, she is good at it and she loves it!
  • Computer programs, like Rosetta Stone. We are planning to do some Rosetta Stone [6] Spanish this year.

What about you? How have you managed the difficult (for you) subjects with your homeschooled children?

Don’t forget to check out how the rest of my 4 Moms team handles this issue!
