Course Description

This course aspires to be your one-stop-shop for all things homeschool!

Through the videos, documents, resources, and most of all through personal interaction with me in the discussion forum...you will learn EVERYTHING you need, and then some, to get started.

The homeschooling landscape can be vast and confusing. I know, I used to be in your shoes, not long ago. There can seem to be too much information out there and not enough information at the same time!

That's where this course comes in. You have homeschooling questions - I have answers, good ones too.

I've been helping parents navigate the homeschooling landscape for years now through my videos, blogs, informally among my local groups and friends, and as private clients.

You see I could talk homeschooling all day, everyday. I'm that passionate about parenting and about education.

Parents seek me out and take my advice for the simple, obvious fact that I've achieved amazing results with my own kids. It all really started when I started posting videos of my son deriving the quadratic formula on YouTube. He was only six years old!

Yeah, he started algebra at age 5 and calculus at 7. He also started winning competitive chess tournaments; he was an early prolific reader (500+ pages a day, easily); an impressive public speaker; a piano prodigy; and now at 10 years old he's already getting paid to design websites.

His sister Christine is dynamite as well. You'll meet them both in this course and I'll gladly share with you everything I've done to accelerate their education.

But most of all, you'll see that my kids are profoundly happy. And this is what homeschooling is all about.

You love your kids more than anything. You want to see them happy not just in the present, but throughout their lives.

You sense that "school" will fail you and your kids....far into the future.

And you sense that there has to be something to "homeschooling" since nearly 3 million American children are homeschooled now and the movement is growing clear across the globe.

Guess what, you are right on both counts!

Join me on my course and you'll see that homeschooling is not merely an alternative to school - that it's an amazing decision that will not only launch your kids but it will invigorate your entire family in ways you could never have imagined!

Instructor Biography

Daniel Louzonis, Homeschooling Coach

I was born and raised in Massachusetts. In high school I captained my math team to the New England Championship! I went to UPenn and graduated a little early with degrees in math and economics. I traded stock and index options, futures, and commodities for 16 years before turning my attention to teaching accelerated math and coaching parents on how to homeschool. I live in the New York City area with my wife and two children.
