Homeschooling is an amazing opportunity to connect with your child.
It can also be completely overwhelming, stressful and confusing.
I was an elementary teacher before I became a mom and I still found certain aspects of homeschooling to be very challenging.
I provide a lot of high-quality free content on my website to help people as they seek answers regarding homeschooling and parenting effectively. This is my gift to others because two of my favorite things to do in life are research and help people find better ways to do things. Very little in life energizes me like knowing I helped someone improve their life. I love it!
But I also know that every individual situation is different. I receive comments and emails from many parents asking me for specific directions or answers about their homeschooling issues.
I wish I had the time to answer all of them in-depth, but I simply don’t. Like many moms, I work from home in order to provide for my family.
At the same time, I do want to be available to help people and so that is why I offer one-on-one homeschool consultating.
Sometimes you just need to talk it out with someone who has been there or is still there! I’m not a homeschool or parenting expert, but I have learned a lot about what works and doesn’t work.
And I’d love to help you sort through your questions.
If you would like to set up a time to talk or email about your homeschool questions, I am available for a consultation.

What You Can Expect from My Homeschool Consulting
Whether you choose a phone or email consultation, I will send you a fairly detailed form to complete and return to me a few days ahead of time. This will jump start our conversation so we make the most of our time. It will help you focus in on what you want help with the most. It will help me start thinking ahead of time so I am well-prepared for our conversation.
Once we both have a good idea of what we are trying to accomplish with our time, we will dig in together to find potential solutions!
What Not to Expect
- I am not a mental health professional so I do not provide counseling.
- I am not a special education professional so I do not diagnose learning problems.
- I am not an expert in homeschool law so I do not provide guidance related to legal issues or adhering to the laws in your particular state.
All payments are due prior to beginning the consultation and are payable through PayPal.
We will spend either a half an hour or one hour together on the phone discussing the issues you have listed as priorities. If relevant, I will send you a follow-up email with links to sites we discussed. Or, if you prefer, we can do an email consultation.
