Homeschool Mentoring

Private Mentoring

Private Mentoring with a homeschooling veteran is available at a cost of $30 per hour.

Homeschooling Newbie Workshops

These meetings are held during July and August each year.

Group Mentoring Classes – Home Education 101

This course runs for 8 weeks.  If you are interested in attending or know someone else who is interested please pass this on. The course is run from a Christian viewpoint, but all are welcome to attend.  If you have taken this course, you are most welcome to join again, and it will cost you nothing since you already have the workbook! We are not ‘experts’ but rather experienced, Dione having finished homeschooling 4 children successfully, and Cynthia have three done and two still in progress. We would like to encourage you in the journey or to give you more information if you are considering homeschooling. You are even welcome to come if you have been homeschooling for a while and need some encouragement or a refresher course. Even Cynthia feels invigorated in her journey, despite having finished with three children. We all need reminders, ideas and encouragement.

This will be based on Vicki Bentley’s book, Home Education 101, and will require the purchase of the Parent Workbook, for  $35, which will be due the first meeting. This just covers the cost of the book, nothing more.

This program is for any new home educating family interested in more personal mentoring from an experienced veteran.

This program may be for you IF:
– you are brand new this year with young children
– you are on the edge of a decision to home educate but want to know more about practical aspects
– you have been at this for a couple of years but still feel you require more of the basic information to go forward more comfortably
– you have older children recently removed from the public or private school system
– you are a veteran and would like to sit in on a session in order to become a mentor with CHEN 

Topics to be covered are:
Beginning the Incredible Journey
Choosing Curriculum
Organizing Your Time
Home Education with Style
Getting Dinner on the Table (The Same Day You Homeschool)
Testing and Evaluation
Teaching Tips
Organizing Your Home
Lessons Learned

You will notice that these topics are not all strictly home educating how-tos but deal with the general flow of your household. Choosing to home educate your children is not simply about making an education choice. It is also a lifestyle choice. How you organize (or don’t organize) your home and household tasks can and do directly affect your “school” time. If you already have done the course you are welcome to join us again.

 These classes usually run in the fall and spring. Please contact us at backyardbooks@outlook.com for more information.
