That would be great if everyone could afford $1000 a month to educate their child.

I know a few people who have formed homeschool pods. 4-6 children and each mom teaches what they are proficient in and they pay a teacher to teach what they cannot. I don't know how much they pay but that would be a great job.!

That sounds like a job offer I got when I first started teaching. It was for a "private school" that turned out to be a few families looking for someone to homeschool their kids.
BUT they were only going to pay me $10 a day. Total. Um. I wouldn't even babysit one kid for $10 a day!

I could definitely get on board with these rates, though!

If it wasn't for the whole retirement thing I would totally be doing that right now. I think I could easily equal my salary if not exceed it, and the job would be much easier.

I texted that to a friend today. If there wasnít such a risk I bet many retired teachers would consider it.

I have a friend who had a student whose parents liked her so much that they offered (and she accepted) to match her salary to homeschool their daughter. They were, obviously, loaded.

I wish someone would offer me that!

In college I did something similar, tutoring homeschooled kids. I earned about $20/hour per kid, and did some one-on-one and some small groups. A lot of math because parents struggled with teaching that . I worked three days a week (not all day) and probably earned about at least $500/week, which was awesome money for working so part-time. I think thatís about what I made my first year of teaching, before taxes

Years ago, someone actually asked me if I'd homeschool their child and they'd get a few more parents to do the same. Then I could make more money than I do as a public school teacher. Unfortunately, I wouldn't have any insurance nor retirement, so I nixed the idea. Sure sounded tempting at the time.
