Description

This course was developed to help all teachers improve upon their craft. It is designed to be useful to all stages of teaching whether you are in the beginning or a veteran.

We have examined what has and hasn’t worked in our 15+ years of teaching and 10 years of homeschooling. We compiled our experience and resources to create a course that teaches you all the things that good teachers do, and how they do them.

In the course, we look at everything from examining your motives and objectives in teaching, classroom management skills, creation of tests & evaluative questioning techniques, record keeping, to lesson planning.

We show you how to understand your learners via their learning styles. We start by discovering which styles they have and then teach you how to develop strategies that best work with an individual’s strengths and weakness. Then we work on how to transform a learner's weakness into a strength.

We look into activating students’ brains for optimal learning. We do this by learning about the regions of the brain that different learning styles reside in. We teach you how to reach a developing mind creating long term memory recall.

All of this is designed to help you, the parent teacher, to create a zest for exuberant lifelong learning in your children.

Home Educators

We are a homeschool family that has been involved with numerous aspects of education for over 15 years. For a number of years we ran a successful tutoring business that focused on helping struggling children excel.

Nicole is a veteran teacher who holds a teaching degree as well as a degree in psychology. She has had the opportunity to teach in public and private schools, teach a variety of ages, and teach numerous subjects.

It was not until Nicole had the opportunity to teach her own children that here passion for teaching fully matured. For the last 10 years Nicole has been fine tuning her craft with our own children and sharing her skills with numerous homeschool groups and co-ops that we have been involved with over the years.

Nathan is a homeschool father who is interested in seeing that his children get the best education possible. Though not excited about homeschooling in the beginning, Nathan has become homeschooling's advocate.

We are seeking to answer many of the questions we have been receiving for years. Our goal is to help new and veteran teachers improve their teaching and have fun in the process.
