TOGETHER, WE CAN DO THIS

Alison here! We've been homeschooling from day one, and we've learned a lot along the way – much of it through trial and error! I set out to create the homeschool coaching program I wish I would have had when we were starting out, and I think I've done it.

Of course, every situation is different, but I'm confident that together we can get you where you want to be on your homeschooling journey – with a lot less trial and error.

How We're Going To Do This

We will work together over the course of three sessions to hammer out what you're looking for in your homeschooling experience.  Guided by what I learn about you and your family, I'll create the ultimate homeschooling resource for your family — then I'll tack on another two hours of future consultation for refining and adapting your plan as life happens.

90-Minutes Introduction

Getting To Know You

Your homeschool coaching questionnaire provides me with the basics about your family and your needs. But this call allows me to get to know you all better - your children’s personalities and interests, your hopes and priorities for their education, your reasons for homeschooling, and whatever concerns, questions, and special considerations you might have. After this call, I can begin shaping your family’s homeschool implementation plan and identifying what local resources and supports will help make your first year successful.

What We're Going To Figure Out

It's easy to get overwhelmed, but successful homeschooling, like most things, comes down to figuring out a handful of fundamentals and making some key decisions. During our time, we're going to tackle each of these essential steps together. When we're done you will have a firm grasp of the fundamentals, a plan in hand, and confidence going forward.

The Law

I'll provide a clear explanation of your state's laws and connect you with support groups. I'll also explain how to keep records, file the required paperwork to withdraw your children from public school, and more.

Learning Styles

The learning style quiz helps me get a better handle on your child’s personality so I can select curriculum that suits them well and makes learning fun for them (and teaching easy for you).

Methodologies

My methodology quizzes help me determine the approach your family will take to homeschooling. It also provides valuable guidance for me as I select curriculum options and create your implementation plan. 

Curriculum

To save you time, money, and frustration, we analyze multiple factors — like your priorities, methodology, budget, and children’s learning styles — to help us select two or three curriculum options for each subject.

Support & Resources

I'll provide a comprehensive list of online resources as well as local resources for enrichment classes, co-ops, field trips, and more so you can find a homeschooling community that suits you.

Strategy & Implementation

I'll create a customized implementation plan so you know what to actually do each day. I will also give you a roadmap for the future so you know how to prepare your children for their post-homeschooling pursuits.

"This has been a transformational process for our entire family! We were anxious, but our coaching sessions with Alison put our minds at ease. We went from being nervous and scared to confident and elated. I was worried I would be overwhelmed with all the choices and decisions to be made, but Alison helped us discover what works best for our son and he is thriving as a result.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the coaching process take?

The entire coaching process takes around four weeks to complete. The size of your family, your unique circumstances, and our ability to coordinate our schedules for interviews may affect the length of the process.

Do you offer refunds?

Coaching and consultation services are non-refundable. I do, however, make every effort to ensure that we are a great fit for each other before either of us commit to anything. 

The initial Coaching Questionnaire usually provides me with the information I need to determine whether my services will suit your situation, but if there is any question on my end, I'll arrange to chat on the phone or over Skype with you so we can dig a little deeper.

My goal is to help you homeschool. If I can do that, I will. If I believe there are better options available for you, I will let you know that, too.

I'm not sure we're a good fit.

If you're looking for a coach to custom-build you a homeschooling approach, narrow your curriculum options to a small, manageable number, and prepare you for what your daily homeschooling life will look like, then chances are good we'll work well together.

I invite you to complete the Coaching Questionnaire, on which you can also note any concerns you have that make you wonder about our fit. If I think we'll be a good match for each other, then I'll reach out for an initial interview, and during that conversation you can clarify any concerns you have that are holding you back. I won't invoice you for the service until we have both agreed that my VIP Homeschool Coaching Package is what you really need and we're both ready to start the process.

Is Something Holding You Back?

Fill out a questionnaire and let me know! My goal is to help you homeschool. If I can, I'll tell you. If I think there are better options out there for you, I'll let you know that, too.  This is all about you and your family. I'm here to serve you. Let's figure out the best way forward together.
