Every family has a different situation and different needs. There are simply gobs of homeschool resources now available online, but the options can easily become overwhelming. I offer consultation to parents who need reccomendations and advice based on their family's needs.
The first consultation is free! On the first consultation, we will discuss your goals, your student's development, and education in general. After careful consideration, we can meet again and I will offer groups, curriculum, or other resources that can help you on your educational journey. Use the Contact page to get started!
See Home Education Resources below to see what methods and rescources I use in all my lessons!
The resources below contain many of the principles, practices, and books I use in all of my lessons. Many of them come from mothers and educators who use what is called the Charlotte Mason Method. Her method is incredibly different from other types of education; it is natural and highly effective. The method starts with seeing the student as a person, and then providing that person with the atmosphere, dicipline, and life they need to grow.
The collection of these resources is all thanks to a wonderful mother who has taught for nearly thirty years.
The Charlotte Mason Method
"Seeing that we are limited by the respect due to the personality of children
we can allow ourselves but three educational instruments––
the atmosphere of environment, the discipline of habit and the presentation of living ideas."
Vol. 6, p 94
