How to Show Tutors on the Transcript

How to Show Tutors on the Transcript

There are some very intense homeschoolers that don't feel confident in homeschool classes that are taught independently. That's not me. I like to make homeschool transcripts the easy way. But, if you are feeling pressured to list your tutor or outside class on a transcript, relax. It's not necessary.

Some homeschoolers say that you "should" do classes outside the home or that you "should" indicate the location of each class. I disagree - there is plenty of research showing that homeschoolers provide a good outcome without outside classes, we don't need to prove anything.

On the other hand, some homeschoolers take classes at a brick and mortar school, a high school or college, and that's ok, too. For classes at a school or college, you DO want to indicate that on the transcript. I recommend using Acronyms for Outside Classes like that.

But for classes that are taught outside the home, but still basically a homeschool class, I suggest only making a note of that in the course descriptions, and only if you want to. So, I recommend keeping the teacher or tutor info to a simple statement on the course description - perhaps like this.

I hope this helps to put your mind at ease! The transcript can be done a variety of ways, but I chose to make it reflect our homeschool in the simplest, truest way possible.
