  How much time does it take?
Home schooling requires a time commitment, but not as much as you might expect. One-to-one tutoring is more efficient than classroom instruction and thus takes less time.

Time requirements vary according to the methods used, the ages of the children, and how many children are being taught.

Academic instruction might begin with one-half to one hour for the early grades and work up to a few hours of instruction and/or independent study for upper grades.

Most correspondence courses state that their work can be completed in four or five hours per day.
