We have noticed the disturbing trend of homeschool students returning to the public school environment during junior high and high school, mainly because of daunting math and science subjects. It is our mission to help parents keep their students in a safe, wholesome environment while still providing a high quality education for their children. We tutor small groups of homeschool students twice a week through Skype and Scribblar in the subjects of math, chemistry, and physics. We only charge $15 a week for this service. Our tutors are highly qualified (each holds a degree in either chemistry, physics, or education), and we have been tutoring and teaching since 2001. We consist of four tutors who are devoted to the idea that our children thrive in an environment that is free of the negative influences and the peer pressure that is found in a public school setting. One of the main reasons I started this program was to help other families keep their children safe and healthy, both physically an emotionally, and I believe that this can be best accomplished in a home environment.

I am a teacher with 30 years experience (20 with homeschoolers) and a homeschooling mom who is now self employed as a tutor and teacher of small groups. I love helping kids get excited about learning and helping build their confidence, while supporting their parents in this homeschooling journey. Experienced with both gifted and special needs, I have a son on the autism spectrum. As a tutor, I can work with your curriculum or produce my own to meet your specific needs. I offer one on one tutoring, but will also work with siblings, or groups of friends for a special rate. Some families employ me to help with a subject they find hard, others use me so they can get a chance for the parent to get half a day to do other things while I homeschool the kids. I will also be teaching a class during Enrichment Thursdays while my highschooler is in Algebra 2.

I teach all subjects K-6. I have experience as a 1st grade Spanish Immersion school teacher, as well as an intervention specialist for students K-5 in a private school. I am now a full-time homeschool teacher.
After two years in an elementary school, I realized how much I love the one-on-one and small group time with my students. I thrive on the personal interaction with them and much prefer the intentional, focused attention I am able to give my students in a homeschool setting.
I have spent the past two years as the personal teacher for two families (5 kids each) in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I adore my students, however I am getting married and moving to Ballwin, MO this August.
Let me know how we can work together to give your children an excellent education from the comfort of your home!
