I’m an Educational Consultant who specialises in helping parents, especially when mainstream isn’t working or not an option they want to use. Frequently this means Homeschooling, Unschooling and all methods of Home Education. From freestyle to curriculum based and all stages in-between, together we can make ‘Homeschooling’ simple.
I have helped people with alternative systems and opting to Home Educate since 2007. Likewise, I’ve answered the many and varied questions parents have regarding education, and parenting. Home Education is parenting 100% of the time, and essentially can be described as not delegating the formal education portion of a child’s development to a school. I help you to navigate that. Do you think you need to purchase a complete education curriculum? You do not. Have you assumed you’ll need to outlay $100s before you can get started? PLEASE DO NOT! Always ask the community how people do it without expensive setup costs, because many will tell you that they regret buying before working out what their children need and are willing to use.
Learning about the world, in the world, is very hard to replicate in a school environment. I’m one of many who have moved from working in a school as a teacher, to opting to home educate their own children. Being in a very diverse community of parents, and caregivers, who are choosing this approach to education is humbling. It has been the best teaching gig I’ve ever had, and it’s also been deeply satisfying to see children’s needs being met without so many of the limitations that are part of School life.

Hi there Claire,
I was wondering how your journey is going since I emailed you back?
All the best,
Just starting the process of homeschooling my 13 year old. I’m wondering if you offer a service that helps me to register and set up a program.
How has 2016 been going for you both?
All the best
