Lee Binz, The HomeScholar
Teaching your child seemed almost easy in the early years when you first started homeschooling. Your child was a little sponge, soaking up every bit of information you could read aloud. But now, your child is approaching the dreaded high school years. And you're scared that ...
- you won't be good enough
- you won't be able to handle high school subjects
- you will ruin your child's chances at getting into college
After homeschooling my own two children through high school, and spending over 15 years helping other homeschoolers, I am here to tell you that you are capable of providing a superior education for your child! Unlike a certified teacher, I won't judge you or evaluate your child - I am the homeschool consultant that won't make you cry. I am here to come alongside you and help you homeschool through high school. You will be able to enjoy these high school years, treasure the memories, and see your child go on to college and career.
I have three core beliefs about homeschooling:
- Homeschooling independently provides the best possible learning environment.
- Every child deserves a college-prep education, whether or not they choose to go to college.
- Parents are capable of providing a superior education for their children.
I know what it's like to get an earful of advice from experts, accreditation agencies, and alternative education programs on what you should do for high school. The problem with all the well-intended advice I had to wade through was that it came from biased sources. Many were selling software, attendance at virtual schools, wanted my money for "accrediting" my courses, or were thinly veiled public school programs trying to get access to my children. They worked hard to erode my confidence that I could homeschool my own children and get them into college and career myself. My two sons earned four year full-tuition scholarships to their first choice university. I did it and you can do it, too!
