A great education without all the stress.
I'm accepting students in the 2nd grade through the 12th grade.
I am a certified teacher, in Georgia, with twenty-five years of experience.
I'm also a certified Montessori teacher and a certified ESOL teacher.
I work full-time as a homeschool teacher because it allows me
to give my students the best education possible, with the least
amount of stress for me, the students and their parents.
I charge either $100 per week or $125 per week for
homeschooling. The fee depends on what level they are on in math.
Students need to bring a WiFi ready laptop, charger, headphones and
lunch. IPads are not a good substitute. We follow the usual
public school calendar.
I teach the following subjects:
reading, children's literature, reading comprehension,
writing, famous authors, spelling, vocabulary, cursive,
keyboarding, punctuation, grammar, standard English,
U.S. history and world history, art history, music appreciation,
science, famous scientists, mythology,
math, world religions, philosophy, and geography.
I am a secular, eclectic, homeschool teacher.
I accept well-behaved, respectful students that want to learn.
Well behaved, in this context means, they will make every
effort to get along with everyone, and do
what I ask, the first time.
Want to learn means,they are invested in their own education,
want to do well in school, and are willing to put effort
into their own education. You can be a wonderful teacher,
but if the student is not motivated, they will not learn
what I have to teach. I am not a Special Education teacher.
The students homeschool from 9:00 - 1:30.
They are to be picked up by 2:00.
I'm located in downtown Decatur, Georgia, 30030.
If this pick up time is a problem we can discuss the options
available.I do not give the CRCT.
I formally assess their work three times a year.
I informally assess their work every day.
Homeschooling is a completely different kind of learning environment.
It lends itself to a great deal of one-to-one time with the teacher, much
less stress, a lot of support, and a completely different approach to
education. The schools put the standards and the standardized tests first.
Homeschoolers put our kids first. I work to make everyday a
productive and happy day, for our children. If you give a kid a really good
education, then you don't have to worry about how they will do on a test.
I've taught in private schools, public schools and charter schools.
Homeschooling allows me to do the best teaching I've ever done.
I want my kids to be happy, well educated and well rounded.
That is what really matters to me.
Thank you for your time.
