Here's our story. We live in Illinois (a VERY easy state to homeschool in!). I homeschool my oldest who is in first grade this year. It's gone great. We've definitely had an up and down year since we're still trying to get a handle on what works best for us, but overall, I can't see her doing school any other way. My middle daughter will be going to morning kindergarten next year because she really needs that time to explore some things on her own without her sisters. I know, I know, most homeschoolers probably think that's nuts but each child is different.

Anyway, here's the crazy idea. My nephew will be in sixth grade next year. He HATES his school because he has had to change schools so often and has a lot of social issues. My idea is to maybe homeschool him next year, just for one year, to see how it goes. Obviously we would have to probably do the text book approach for him since he would return to public school. He seems to have no problem learning that way because he gets really great grades. I think he needs homeschool because of emotional reasons. His mom is a single mom with two jobs and no way to do it herself. Would we have to call it a private school and me his tutor? Any thoughts on this undertaking would be great!

As far as I can tell, there are no rules for private schools in Illinois aside from attendance (176 days) and subjects (language arts, biological and physical science, math, social sciences, fine arts, health and physical development), so there should be no issues with you being the teacher rather than your nephew's mother.
