Almost every homeschool experience is unique, and is more likely to be a mishmash of two or more forms of homeschooling.
For example … our family.
Over the past year or so, we have tried various flavors of homeschooling with our 10 year-old daughter. As we try each method, I ask her for feedback, to categorize and rank her favorite ways to learn. Here are the results of our latest discussion:
This list shows a mix:
- online learning (graphics, math, & writing)
- traditional class (art, swimming & Chinese)
- online class via Skype (Latin)
- one-to-one tutoring (piano, violin, math, Roman history, & math)
This is one of the key differences between homeschooling and the regular school environment – we are free to choose whichever method we believe is appropriate, and best fits our daughter’s preferences and learning styles.
