    Providing that the student is actually being educated properly at home:
    1. Student can move at own pace
    2. Flexible schedule for family
    3. Cheaper - no school clothes, fees, supplies, etc.
    4. Useful for students who are focused on an activity such as gymnastics, figure skating, etc. and put in long hours of practice.
    5. No limits to creativity
    6. More one-on-one attention and immediate feed-back
    7. Expanded curriculum
    8. Can sleep in!!! LOL
    You didn't ask for the shortcomings of home education, so I won't go there!

    The benefits are many. Consider some of the main ones listed here: • Parents can maintain and enjoy the position of primary influence in the developing lives of their children. • Home provides a safer environment with fewer distractions. • Curriculum and pace of learning can be geared to the individual child. • The negative effects of peer pressure are minimized in an age-integrated setting. • More time spent with children results in closer relationships. • One-on-one tutoring has many advantages over the typical classroom where one teacher tries to meet the needs of many children at differing learning levels. • Age integration as opposed to age segregation better prepares the child for life in the "real world". • Flexibility and economy of time - It takes less time to get the work done at home than in a typical classroom resulting in greater flexibility in scheduling.
