Teaching, working, parenting...it's a lot!

We can concede that it has been a pretty rough year for many of us.

Look, I get it. This pandemic has thrown us all for a loop! Out of concern for the health and safety of their children, many parents are now in a position where they have become their child's teacher. There were about 2.5 million students being homeschooled in the spring of 2019. Given our current circumstances, that number has likely doubled! Not to mention parents who have students with IEPs and are homeschooling for the first time.

Breathe...

That's what I'm here for. You don't need to go get a teaching credential or take out a loan to hire a private tutor. With the right mindset, tools and preparation, you can learn to homeschool like a pro!
