Teaching Your Own Children: Are You Qualified? Back to Top
Am I Qualified to Teach My Own?
Gary Grammar
The differences in teaching a classroom full of children and one's own children are marked. This article discusses how the love and attention from one's own parent can make all the difference and why a home-teaching parent has a clear advantage over the school teacher.
Are You Qualified to Teach Your Child at Home?
Jennifer McGarry
Can anyone with the means and the will teach their own child academics? Can anyone can teach their own child at home? For most Americans, if you have the means and the will, you can successfully homeschool your children.
Are You Qualified?
Rachel Wolf
Without a degree, are you qualified to teach your own children at home? Rather than attempting to be an authority on everything, homeschooling parents are the bridge that connects their children with people, resources, and tools to help them reach their goals.

Making the Transition from Parent to Homeschool Teacher
Isabel Shaw
Parents often tell me, "I'd love to homeschool my kids, but I don't think I'm qualified." Other parents are intrigued by homeschooling, but couldn't possibly imagine themselves as both parent and teacher. Is it possible for average parents to take on the enormous job of educating their children? Aren't years of specialized training required to become a good teacher? The answer to both of these questions is "yes." How is that possible? Because learning at home is very different from learning in a classroom.
The Myth of Teacher Qualifications
Chris Klicka
Most education officials publicly claim that teachers need special “qualifications” in order to be effective. As a result, public education organizations often promote legislation or an interpretation of the law which would require home school parents to have one of three qualifications: 1) a teacher certificate, 2) a college degree, or 3) pass a “teacher’s exam.” Although this seems reasonable on the surface, such requirements not only violate the right of parents to teach their children as guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth Amendments, but virtually all academic research documents that there is no positive correlation between teacher qualifications (especially teacher certification requirements) and student performance.
