Homeschooling someone else's child?!

We all know what it is like to homeschool our own children, but what about when you are asked to homeschool some one else's? Some may cringe at the thought, while someone else would be more than happy to help out a friend or a family member with this task.
Why would someone ask another person to help them homeschool their child? Some of you may be thinking, well if they do not want to, then that is what private/public school is for. Well, sometimes people love the idea of homeschooling, but because of reasons that can not be helped, are unable to fulfill this dream for their own child. For other people, maybe it is not that they need your help educating their child in all area's, but a certain subject that they are not able to teach themselves.

I am sure we can all relate to an area of school that we have or are dreading to teach. For instants, homeschool math! Online Algebra programs can help, but as someone who just went through learning Algebra for my College education requirements, it can be a hard subject for some to understand, teach, and learn.
At the moment, I am personally helping someone homeschool their child. She is in 8th grade and is struggling in Math. Since, I just finished this myself, I am more than happy to help.  It is great feeling to help out a fellow homeschooler ;)

Until next time...

How exciting that you can help out another family with homeschooling their child. I am one that would fall into the "cringe" category if asked, lol. Not because I would mind necessarily, but beacuse even though we've been homeschooling for several years, I don't think I would feel confident enough to be responsible for someone else... :/

I think it's wonderful you are trying though, and I hope it works out beautifully! :)
