I was planning to home school my daughter. When I asked her to watch a tutorial twice she walked away saying, "uh huh",and the third time she started watching tv. So I figured that that was a good idea of what to expect from trying to teach her at home. So I canceled the home schooling and I am just putting her back in public school.

No. You can learn how to get the behavior you want from your child. You could start with the book How to Talk So Kids Will Listen. You can join online or local home school groups to learn how to be an effective parent/teacher. There are parenting classes like PET and STEP that may be offered in your community.
Look into unschooling philosophy and see if that works for you. Find out all the options in your state. There are many home schooling on the mothering.com discussion boards. There are articles about homeschooling.
The situation you describe sounds like your failure, not hers. Homeschooling is worth it. I homeschooled my 3 sons and was a single mom.
