Homeschooling At Its Best

Today I had That Kid take a diagnostic test through Acceleration Christian Education to find out exactly where he was in math...boy, do we have a lot of work ahead of us this year. Math has always been our weak area, and he has struggled with some of the basics now for years. I found out just how weak he was and how far behind he is through this test.
Next, we will need to hire a tutor for math to get him up to where he needs to be....I know it will be a long, hard road but he is a smart kid when he applies himself, so I know he will get there. This is one of the best reasons to homeschool your kids. When they need extra help you can get it for them and they don't just get left behind.

That is great that you were able to find that out and get the extra assistance he needs. You are right about the advantage of homeschooling: it allows children to work at their pace and to get the individualized attention they need in weaker areas.
