Online homeschooling your student often works similarly to traditional homeschooling. Your child will study the same subjects students in a public school setting learn, but in the more comfortable environment of your home. The biggest difference is often that, when using an online school, you don’t have to play the role of teacher for your student. While you can act as support, study buddy, and task manager by encouraging your child to ask for help and stay on track with their studies, you don’t have to stress about making sure you’re teaching them the right subjects. But before you are ready to sign your child up for online homeschool, here’s what you should know about how it works.
