Homeschoolers aren't masters at all forms of education. Generally we all have one or two subjects that we never excelled at ourselves. There are a few ways to approach it. 1) getting a tutor. 2) joining a co-op, which is like a once-per-week school made up of homeschoolers. One benefit of co-ops is having others teach classes you may not be the best in. 3) looking for resources/curriculum that won't require you to be the teacher. Like 

Quoting biomom1437:

I enjoy being able to tailor my son's education around his personal needs. If we need to spend extra time on English we can, if he flies through his math then I know it might be time to find something a little more challenging. Being able to put my children first is the best, even when it go against the popular choice.
