The GOOD NEWS: homeschooling high school is the best life preparation you can give your children. The GREAT NEWS: you are fully capable of providing that quality education. You lack for nothing – except tools and confidence. That is where I can help!
My name is Lee Binz, and I am The HomeScholar. This is a place for you to find the resources and tools you need to succeed. I understand these concerns because I've lived through them myself.
Here are some examples of how I have helped parents overcome their high school problems. Are you one like one of these parents? Can I help you?
Sally is a veteran homeschool parent, but was fearful of the transition to high school. I provided three hours of individualized information and support. By the time we finished, she was relaxed and confident.
Michelle was overwhelmed with the complexities of college applications, and called me regularly for advice. We discussed strategies each step of the way, and she was able to pull together what she needed and apply before the deadline.
Jenny is a gifted home educator, but wanted an independent third party to look over her high school plan. After one hour, she felt assured to be on the right track, and had tips in many areas.
CJ wanted input on her homeschool. We identified that she was duplicating some course work, which was causing her son frustration. We were able to quickly eliminate the duplication, providing a more enjoyable school situation for her – and for her son.
Deann needed help understanding how to homeschool high school. She watched my video "Preparing to Homeschool High School" and it did the trick! She said "This is fantastic! I feel as though I was able to sit across the table from a close friend and mentor as she guided me through the process of homeschooling high school!"
Cindy called me in a complete panic. She needed a transcript "NOW!" Right then and there, we did a two hour consultation and the next day it was done! She had the transcript in hand, ready to go.
Kim had an unmotivated art student and couldn't afford college. We did a one hour consultation and scholarship search. As a result, her daughter became excited about the college process and was subsequently admitted to her first choice university, with scholarship money.
Alyson was afraid of starting the upper grades and wanted some structure in her homeschool. I scheduled lesson plans so she had a written plan of action.
Sharon decided that she didn't want to "slave over the paperwork." We spent some hours collecting data, and I wrote all the course descriptions for her. Sharon ended up with a Comprehensive Record that looked very similar to mine, and she was thrilled.
When you work with me, you will receive the personal care and expert advice that will help you overcome the many challenges of homeschooling high school. No matter what the issue, I will come alongside and guide you through the process and help you think through the solutions.
Be confident! Homeschooling high school is not only possible, but it is the best way to help your children succeed beyond your wildest imagination!
How do I know? I homeschooled my two boys for eight years, from elementary school through high school. Not only did my boys graduate from high school, but they both received four-year, full-tuition scholarships from their first choice university. Through this process, I learned the secrets on how to homeschool successfully through high school -- secrets that I am very excited to share with you.
