She is a renowned influencer and thought leader in the education industry, widely recognized for spearheading a fundamental change in the way young people engage with education in the digital age.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a private tutor?
Do I have to be my student's teacher?
The short answer, no! Parents often think they have to be the one to teach their child, but what makes us so unique is we provide you with not only all materials and curriculum, but also a professional teacher to oversee all aspects of learning. So you can go to work, travel or run errands knowing that your student is receiving proper help and guidance from a compatible, qualified teacher. We offer in-person or virtual tutors, as well as traveling and on-call tutors to facilitate private one-on-one learning while accommodating any schedule and lifestyle as needed.
Do homeschoolers lack socialization?
Homeschooling generally has a positive impact on social skills because it allows students the freedom to engage more deeply and in more kinds of community activities than they typically could do in the confines of conventional public and private schools. Many homeschooled children are used to being around kids and adults of different ages and abilities. They are involved in their communities, interacting with merchants, the elderly, younger children, their peers, their relatives, and people from all walks of life!
Are homeschoolers stuck in their house all day?
One of the most common misconceptions about homeschooling is that homeschoolers are always home. But in reality, it is rare to find homeschooled children spending many days in their house. They can travel with their families, participate in activities, coordinate field trips and play sports! As a homeschooled teen you can even work or volunteer in your community.
