Homeschool Mentor

Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance.

Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.
- John Holt

Experience You Can Trust

I started homeschooling when our oldest was forced to put her head down on her desk during pre-school's "Reading Circle" because she couldn't "blend her sounds" at 4 years old! I never wanted her to feel like a failure... to feel that she was "bad at learning!" 

Learning is the most natural thing we do as humans. I wasn't going to have her doubting her abilities, so we pulled her out of school and started to homeschool against all of my family's and society's doubts and skeptic remarks. This began what has turned out to be the greatest, most terrifying, and most rewarding journey of my life.

Over the years I have used a variety of curriculum, studied educational philosophy until I was blue-in-the-face, and read countless books on the subject. I believe everyone's homeschooling journey will be uniquely their own, as mine has been.

I have now successfully homeschooled our oldest through high school and into the college of her choice with a scholarship. I am committed to helping you claim your homeschool power so you can thrive individually and your family can grow together. I know you can succeed in this adventure, let me help you discover  how.

    Your family is unique and your homeschool efforts should work with, not against, your needs. I take the time to learn what you need so you can move forward with confidence.
