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.

English: Literature and Composition

Resources used:

Primary Text: IEW Live Online Writing Class
Supplemental Text: Excellence in Literature: American Literature
Tutor: Laura House, IEW Live Online Writing Class Instructor

if you have many questions about making a transcript, this article may help: How to Make a Homeschool Transcript.

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.

    Homeschool law usually isn't the same as the law covering public or private schools.

  • Homeschool High School Geography

    Geography is one area of social studies. Colleges are often specific about what they want to see for high school social studies, including American history, world history, economics, and American government. Since economics and government are often just half-year classes, together they take only one year.
