Hi. I am new to the forum and mother of 2 girls (ages 1 and 3). I am considering homeschooling my children. I am currently a teacher in the public school system in our town and this is not the environment I want for my children. My problem is that we cannot afford to live on one salary (my husband's). I need to bring home income. I read that in FL you can set up your homeschooling under a "private tutor" label as long as you are certified to teach in the areas that you are teaching (I am certified K-12). I am considering the possibility of "homeschooling" a few other children in my home and charging a modest tuition to help allieviate the financial burden of not working. Has anyone ever heard of someone doing such a thing? It seems to me that it is legal? Thoughts? Advice??

Thanks so much for listening!

If you're certified to teach, then it should be perfectly legal.

Are you thinking that the children would come to your home daily? In that case, I would think it would be a private school and not tutoring. You might want to check into the legalities of that, too.

It's just a difference of responsibility. If you're a tutor, the parents are responsible for the overall paperwork. If you're a school, you may have to file some paperwork yourself (attendance). I don't think you're automatically a school if you tutor at your home rather than at someone else's home, especially if you only teach a few kids at a time rather than a whole "class".

I had this same thought and actually made it happen. I've grown so we've moved out into a suite. I not only teach homeschoolers but tutor there after school as well Smile
