Advice for Homeschool Moms
I get lots of emails asking for homeschool advice, and while I do my best to answer them either by way of a blog post or with an email reply, some situations are better handled with actual face to face (or voice to voice) interaction.
Because of my busy schedule, it may take me weeks to get to your question by either of those methods. It normally takes me at least half an hour to respond thoughtfully to a complex homeschool dilemma. A blog post can take over an hour of my day.
My solution to the problem is to offer homeschool advice either via Skype or Google+ hangout. If you would like to consult with me, send me an email with an overview of your circumstances and some suggested times to meet online. (I am in central time zone.) I will send you payment information and set an appointment.
The rate is $36 per hour with a one hour minimum charge. After the first hour, time is charged in half hour increments, even for follow up calls. I am also available for ongoing consultation such as weekly check-ins for accountability.
For example, an introductory consulting package for $70 includes the following:
- initial 1 hour meeting
- two 30 minute follow-up meetings once a week for two weeks (for accountability or troubleshooting)
Areas of Expertise
Consulting for Curriculum Companies
If you need input from a professional educator who is also a homeschool mom, I can help. I have a BA in English and an MS in education. I taught in public schools for eight years and have homeschooled for eight years.
I can offer critiques and feedback for a homeschool curriculum or for an educational website. I am also available for education related copywriting. As a blogger and online content creator, I have enough experience to offer basic social media marketing and SEO advice for homeschool curriculum providers.
