YOU, Mom and Dad, are the primary teachers.
In those cases where there is a legal guardian, then the legal guardian is the primary teacher. (Legal documentation of guardianship must be provided.)
You do not need to be a certified teacher. If you enroll in our Tennessee school, you will need to have earned a minimum of a high school diploma or GED to teach your high school students, but it's not required to teach those students in lower grades.
Please note that each state has its own home education laws and requirements.
You may use or hire tutors to help your student (math tutors, music teachers, gym class trainers, retired teachers, grandparents, etc.), but you are still the primary teacher.
The primary teacher and the student must live in the same household.
