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.

Homeschool law usually isn't the same as the law covering public or private schools. Homeschooling in Washington State, for example, public school is covered in one area of the law, and homeschool law is covered in an entirely different area. It can be confusing! When researching the laws in your state, make sure you are looking at the law that applies to
